When you haven’t accomplished what you’d hope for, regret can become a major pastime. The computer programmer wishes he would become an accountant, the accountant wishes he would become a doctor, etc.
Maybe you planned to leave a legacy, but to date all you’ve left is a trail of unfilled aspirations. It is not too late; you can begin again! You just have to be prepared to pursue your dream and pay the price.
To win the contest you must deny yourselves many things that would keep you from doing your best’ (1 Corinthians 9:25).
Don’t listen to the critics and complainers who’ve settled for less. Your goal shouldn’t just be to live long, but to make a difference in your world and glorify God.
Look at Winston Churchill: instead of retiring after World War II, he went on to win the Nobel Prize in literature.
When Heinrich Schliemann retired from business to look for Homer’s legendary city of Troy – he found it. Like Bible characters Moses and Paul, they started again.
Here’s a Scripture you can stand on: ‘Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion…therefore I hope in him’ (Lamentations 3:22-24)!
That means you can begin again.
Have a Blessed Day
