No Regrets

It's a life motto. Of course, it needs qualification, in light of Christ. Sin is ever and always my only regret. Apart from that, I have never been ashamed to say what is on my heart to say. If you are reading this, you know that.

Whenever people in the world say, "he lived life to the fullest," I note with some chagrin that the person to whom they are referring often died of a drug overdose, or a stupid stunt. That isn't living; that's just finding a quick thrill, because you can't see how alive everything is. If you can brush your teeth to the glory of God, you aren't far from the Kingdom.

Everyone has worry and frustration. Sometimes, you don't even realize that's what you feel until you do the wrong thing. Ask for mercy and pardon, and move on.

Don't live halfway; decide who you are, and spend every second being that person. A lot of people are afraid that if they are themselves, no one will like them. It isn't true. Well, you might be a person most people are justified in disliking, but by God's mercy, you'll realize that before they do.

In the end, No Regrets.
