Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Sometimes the fruit we wish to produce
become less than desirable.
Things we should have done...
things we shouldn't have done,
leave us regretting previous choices.

"Regrets... are the natural property
of grey hairs; and I enjoy,
in common with all other men,
at least my share of such inheritance."

- Charles Dickens
(“Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit”)

Regret can ruin our present joy
and our future hope, however,
deep regret can lead to a stronger faith,
if we put them behind us.

"I do not consider, brethren,
that I have captured and made it my own [yet];
but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]:
forgetting what lies behind
and straining forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal to win
the [supreme and heavenly] prize
to which God in Christ Jesus
is calling us upward."

- Philippians 3:13-14 AMP
