Living Without Regret

Michael Beck

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14)

So many relationships end unnecessarily. Immaturity pulls the plug. Bitterness triumphs over grace. A lack of love refuses to bear, believe, hope, or endure.

Running away is easier than running to God for strength to stand and grow and persevere. And so a relationship that could have survived and eventually thrived is laid to rest. And the greatest tragedy? We miss the opportunity to see what God could have done in us and for us. What seemed like wisdom in the emotional whirlwind of the moment will not look so good in the long, sober light of eternity.

Brave people gain glorious testimonies and live without regret.
