There've been many times in my life that I did things I now look back on and wonder, "what the heck was I thinking?!" Lots of mistakes. Lots of disappointment. Lots of "oopsies".....
.
First of all, thank you Jesus for wiping all that clean!! 🙌🏻 CAN I GET AN AMEN! For real. Second of all, I have NO regrets. Sure, I'm not proud of who I was before becoming a Christian, but I know that so much of what I went through was grooming me to become who I am today.
.
I have compassion because I've been hurt. I have understanding because I've been misunderstood. I have peace because I've experience loneliness. All of the things that I went through have given me such a different perspective on life and on what's truly important. You know? So because of that, I wouldn't trade any of it.
.
My suffering has given me great strength because it's taught me how to rely on God.
.
If you're suffering from guilt, hardship, physical or mental ailments, let me encourage you that it can all be used for a greater purpose! God doesn't waste ANYTHING. He knows every single hair on your head, and He knows what you need. But He's waiting on you to trust Him.

He can take all the stuff you've done and make it new. All the regrets you might be carrying can be totally wiped out in an instant. None of it matters to Him. You just have to accept his free gift of grace. 💕 #NoRegrets
