Knowing RIGHT from WRONG…

 Sometimes doing what is RIGHT, feels really really WRONG!

Ever been to this place?  I have.  I am right here and wrong now…. for such a time as this.  Have you made a major decision that cost you… your life?  I have been here, too. 

There are those who come at me with the “regret” word, like they think they wear my shoes.  I can assure you, they haven’t taken my steps.  But, I have experienced regret…  I regret allowing people to trespass where they do not belong.  I regret not digesting His Word, from His heart, sooner.  I regret not trusting God with ALL my heart.  I regret relying on my [& all human(s)] understanding.  I regret not seeking Him first in ALL things.  I regret not waiting for God to make my path straight.  I regret not knowing that two wrongs don’t make it right.  I regret… all things that have come from these.  But I also know…

“That my God causes all things to work together for good, to those who love Him, those called according to His purpose.” [Romans 8:28] 

For such a time as this… I am right here, [appearing to you] wrong now.  I am right here, at this very time, to live out ‘what God has made’.  I also know that the things that have appeared really wrong [to you and me], were to occur, and in God’s timing.  

I begged God… “If this is not from You, don’t let it happen.  If it is not Yours [Your will], I don’t want it.”  I knew something was really really right or really really wrong.  YES!  Really really right because “it happened”.  And really really wrong can have its purpose… for those who love God… for such a time as this.

So… “Yes”.  I have regrets.  I regret ALL things that have led me away or distracted me from my Lord, and His purpose for me… so it seems.  [Remember… God causes ALL things to His good, His glory.]  What I don’t regret is following Jesus, even when it has meant persecution from you or others.  I don’t regret holding fast to His Word, His timing, His counsel!

For such a time as this…

My God is…
   The God of Restoration!  
   The God of Healing!
