If we lived our lives over again - would we live them the same - or make some radical changes ?

For some people their lives may be just right - but for others they might want to change some choices they have made - if they had the chance to do so .

If We Could Live Our Lives Again .

If we could live our lives again - Would we ?
Would we dare to face the wrong decisions made - in
A completely different way ?
Would we have courage to persevere - until
We saw the answers turn out right ?
And not pursue the same old paths of selfishness
That led to such - unneedful sorrows - seen
So clearly - with hindsight.?
Or - would we choose a Higher path -
Marked out for us - in God's - all perfect plan ?
Where we would know of - greater Glory -
Being led - and Cherished -
By - His Almighty Hand .

I know there is no fruitfulness in looking back -
Nor living in regret -
As it leaves the soul to languish - in futility - with
Longings - never met .
So - knowing we can't turn back the clocks
Or tread the paths of Yester-year - once more .
We must go forward - though - more wistful now .
But - with new courage - and quiet confidence -
As we choose - to walk - through
Tomorrow's - Open Door .

So - let us lay aside - all past mistakes
That will hinder - our onward way -
And - with contentment - for each moment -
Let us embrace the future - boldly - come what may .
And - with God's help and guidance -
May we step towards the dawn -
When we will see His face of Beauty -
And our past - will be - forever
Gone .

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

What a day that will be - when I see the glorious face of my Saviour - and He welcomes me into His loving embrace - and says to me ' Welcome Home Stella ' you are safe for ever more .

I know that there are many things I could have done better - but because I have asked forgiveness of my many sins - He assures me that - He has cast them as far as the East is from the West - and remembers them no more .

Do you have that assurance ?

You can.

God's love and forgiveness is still there - for You.

Everything we would change would mean we would not be where we are today, it could be better, it could be worse.

Ps Mark , for me personally there were things that I know God wanted me to do , one of them was to have my husband back , when he left me , but because of his cruel jealousy I was afraid . Could God have changed him ,Yes , but I know the sorrows I went through because of my lack of trust . it would have been very different for my family as well. Better or worse , only God knows that

We might wish to have another go and start again and do it differently. But most things we do are because other people in our lives, whether we know them or not, shape what we are. So we would need everyone to do things different.

I agree , but it is all hypothetical, we can't change the past, But we can refuse to let the past or others dictate our future . Fear held me at one time so much so I was terrified of men . I'm cautious now , but not afraid of them , but I had to change . I think I'm babbling again . You see, I told you , you would make a good Counsellor . ha !

Anyway , why Denmark ?
