If only I had tried harder, put more effort into it and not let myself get distracted. Have you ever reflected on moments in your life and realized that a little more effort or time could have led to different outcomes? I was thinking about that as I was watching, our high school track meet. Thousands of amazing athletes and I reflected back on my time in high school, and I had a passion for running what if what if I would've pushed harder? what if I would've trained harder? What if I would not have been afraid to go all in?  What could have I done? 

I believe this could also apply to our relationship with God.

 Doors were open to me in the past to deepen my connection with Christ, to spend more time together, but I frequently neglected to make it a priority. I chose to fit him in when it worked for me, and I often put other things ahead of him. I may not be to go back and redo things. 

I can choose to do things today that will make all of the tomorrows better. 

I can choose to start my day with God. 

I can choose to slow down ask him for knowledge and wisdom. 

I can choose to spend more time in his word. 

I can choose what I watch, listen to and who I am with 

I can choose to join in fellowship with others.

So, we cannot go back we can always go forward , I can choose how to use the time I have to bring him honor and glory. I am not perfect. I'm progressing. 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
