Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
1 Peter 3:4
Worrying about what I’ve done is useless because it’s already done. Fretting over what is before me only makes me anxious and the situation more stressful than it need be. What I should be focusing on is what’s inside me. That’s what makes me who I am and how I handle life.
What’s in my heart and spirit is the driving force behind how I treat others and what kind of example I am for Christ.
When I see how much I dwell on my past mistakes, instead of zoning in on having a loving attitude and an open hand to all of God’s children, I get a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach, because I usually know when I’m not doing what I should be doing.
Like too many people, I just don’t always make the right choice. Once I get my heart right with God, I keep my eyes on Jesus and see all the wonderful joys of being alive.
What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
