Show Notes

In today’s episode we’re going to talk about how to manage and overcome regrets. 

Regret is a feeling of sadness, disappointment or sorrow, which is caused by something that has happened to us, something we have done or something we wish we had done differently. Most often we regret things we feel are too late to change. 

A recent study asked people in an end of life hospice care facility what their greatest regrets were. Those interviewed admitted they were dying with regrets. However, many people are currently living with regrets. 

We are well aware of how Satan tries to use condemnation against us. However, improperly managing regrets can lead us to self-condemnation. 

Regret is a thief, it makes you look back while robbing you of happiness. Regrets magnify the negative and blind us to the positive in your life. 

An unhealthy view of regret can leave us with an unhealthy view of ourselves. God wants to help you overcome your regrets so you can get back to living a happier life. 

In today’s episode, we’ll take a closer look at how Peter and Judas managed regret. We’ll also learn how Paul overcame his regrets. We will also lay out practical steps that will help you manage and overcome regrets in a healthy and godly manner. 

If you’re ready to overcome your regrets, then sit back, listen and let God help you. 

Thank you for listening. 

Let’s keep building!
