When I think of all of the things that I did not try, it really makes me sad. In my 59 years of living I have had the opportunity to do things that would have been AMAZING, but I turned them down. One time in particular, I was invited to speak at a conference in GREECE. Yes, you read it correctly, Greece. Now, why they invited me, I will never know, but a missionary invited me to go and spend the week and speak. So I know you are asking me, "How was the trip?" Unfortunately I must tell you I did not go. I can't remember the LAME excuse why I could not go, but that is all it was, an excuse. I was afraid to travel that far by myself. Yes, I get it that I was acting so childish and lacking in faith, but it happened.
As I sit here today and think about WHAT IF I had gone what would have been the results. How would have God used me to touch the lives of these youth in Greece. What amazing things would have God done in my own life I often ask myself. It grieves me to say, but I will never know. Fear kept me from moving forward into an amazing opportunity. There is nothing I can do about that trip over 25 years ago, but I can change today. How about you. Do you have regrets? How about doing 2 things with me about these regrets. First, accept that you did allow fear or whatever feeling you had to cheat you out of something great that God had for you. Second, make a decision to never allow that to happen again. Just because you blew it once, does not mean that He is finished with you OR that He will never give you other opportunities. Seize the day.
Think about that
