Time and regret

Life can get in the way of you walking your path, at least this is true for me.

This past week and a half, I have spent celebrating two birthdays, getting ready for a landmark graduation, and getting ready for a spur of the moment vacation, all the while I kept thinking I would get a chance to do some work on the computer. I carried this thing and my other devices, fooling myself into believing that I could make the time to do all the things I wanted to do.  I felt a strong calling to sit and do “work” yet I kept putting it off. As I look at my days, I can easily justify not doing what I “should” have done. I had many valid reasons yet I am facing a feeling of Regret. I have come to the decision that if you regret something, it is not because you didn’t have time to do it but rather that you choose not to do it.  As painful as it is to admit it to myself it is very true.  I could have done more, been more aggresive with my time, found a way to fit it all in—I need to work at keeping regret out of my life. “HOW?”

Lord, please forgive me for not putting first priority on your call. Make me strong in receiving your words and letting my heart and soul be the ones to take charge of my time. Guide me in balancing our earthly lives with our faith-filled lives.  Sometimes, Lord, our lives  are  so easily overtaken by our weaknesses, Help us. In your name we pray. Amen
