I am grateful to God for all that He has done in my life. I think of where I would be if He had not intervened, and I shudder. But then I often also think of where I would be, what I could have done, if I had not wasted so much of my life. You may think me young, and I suppose you are right, but the fact that much of my life has been wasted is still true. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. Have any of you wondered what you could have done, where you would be, if you hadn’t wasted so much of your life?
   Regret is a normal human thing. The danger comes in the perspective. We view those years as wasted, like a crop that has been eaten by locusts. Scripture tells us to redeem the time, for the days are evil. Eph 5:16. We know that we did not do this, we spent years in vanity and pride (as the song says). And so, we have regret. We forget however that God is a master craftsman. He can make use of even the most useless things - He created the universe out of nothing after all! Stand and be amazed at the master’s work, as he creates usefulness out of waste - and ministry out of misery. Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved  Access Deacon Josh's notes at
