Run Your Race Without Regret
I think the most interesting thing about that video is that it seems many if not most of the regrets had to do with something someone did NOT do. It takes courage to act. It is so much easier to be passive and let life happen to you instead of the other way around.
Why is it so hard to act?
I know for me, it’s very simple. I’m afraid of making a mistake. I know God has good plans for me. I know he promised to directed my steps but what happens if I misstep? What happens if something throws me off track? What happens if I lose that path?
All of those doubts start tangling my thought until eventually they start tangling my steps. I figure the safest thing to do is to not move, not act, not take that risk, not have that conversation, not take that test, not allow myself to possibly make that mistake. Sounds safe, right? Better yet, it sounds downright easy!
It’s a trick. Plain and simple. If the enemy can make you too afraid to move, he can keep you from running your race and accomplishing anything for God.
Sometimes I think God is watching us in our stock stillness and waiting for us to DO SOMETHING!
