If only I knew then what I know now. If only I had done this instead of that. There are many things we would do differently if we could. What is done is done. We cannot go back and get a do over. What we can do is learn from our mistakes and/or take what we know now and do better. We must learn to live life without regrets.
Living a life with regrets keeps you chained to your past. When you dwell on regrets, you build up emotions within yourself that prevent you from progressing. You fear your future because you think you might make the wrong choice or decision. If you do not take control of these negative thoughts, they could become strongholds in your life.
Maybe you are thinking there is no way to stop living a life of regrets, but there is a way to prevent negative thinking. You must take your feelings and negative thoughts to the Lord. Tell Him what is on your mind. Speak from the heart. You need to renew your mind. Renew your mind by reading the Word of God. Replace wrong thoughts with right thoughts.
Once your mind is renewed with the Word of God, you will begin to control your thoughts. You will begin to speak according to His Word and combat any negative thoughts that come to your mind. You will think how God wants you to think and speak how He wants you to speak. It is time to live your life without regrets and stop living in the past.
"Brethren, I count myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before." Philippians 3:13 KJV
