To let go of regret, reset.

Regrets are in the past; choices are in the present. Although you can’t undo your regrets, you are free to reset and to make fresh choices today.

Self-focus leads to a lifestyle of ongoing “relationshipwreck” — broken hearts, shattered friendships, and ruined romances. It takes courage to honestly confess your wrong behavior. It takes even more courage to stop it.

I gave up my independence when I surrendered my life to the living Jesus and gained freedom from guilt, regret, and inner torment. Without God’s forgiveness, I’d be full of guilt and regret.

When you forget
To regret
Disappointment
Loses its effect.

TRUE FREEDOM
It's easy to fret
Over guilt and regret
And let it steal
Your happiness.
Instead, open your heart
And humbly reveal
The wrongs you've done,
So you can begin to heal.

BROKEN DREAMS
What might have been
Might not have been
As wonderful
As you imagine it

FREEDOM DAY
Regret is a distraction
Tormenting you
About inaction
Or wrong action,
But active interaction
With Jesus
Brings healing.

TRUE FREEDOM
It's easy to fret
Over guilt and regret
And let it steal
Your happiness.
Instead, open your heart
And humbly reveal
The wrongs you've done,
So you can begin to heal.

Let disappointed regret
Lead you to humility
And guilty regret
Lead you to repentance.

Jesus can reset
Your life
And erase your debt
To regret.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

    Jesus sets us free to be what He made us to be. Whom the Son set free, will be free indeed!
