on the rebound…

i am sure all of us, with no exceptions, have uttered the phrase “I SHOULD HAVE…”

someone has told me, “I SHOULD HAVE…” is one of the worse things to say, because it is an expression of regret, of something we should have done but didn’t or feeling of having lost something, be it feelings or opportunities, that we feel the world would have been a much better place if we have chosen the other way, or so we thought (truth is, it is actually more about doing what is convenient for me)…

but the thing is,, we will never know which one is the better choice for us, right?

recently, i have been going through that feeling, of having the wrong choice, of not being able to do what is right and that, i am forgetting to look at the positive side of things, the glass being half filled, as the song goes, i “sink beneath the waves of negativity” (“HOLD ME TOGETHER” by Royal Tailor – click title for youtube link)….in short, i was so easily discouraged about many things going on in my life.

having read the story of Nehemiah, when he was tasked to rebuild Jerusalem, despite opposition and criticism around him, his integrity and faith in God made him continue and finish his work… and i thought of my own walls that crumbled and need rebuilding… unlike Nehemiah,, i went a-crying and a-blaming myself, and regretting…

but, i thank the Holy Spirit for the many people around me who encourage me,, the prayers He taught me to pray, the beautiful music i listen to, that now i am on the rebound… yes, it was that easy, because God is a merciful God, and He is the only one i can look to in times of distress,, PRAISE HIM ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!

James 1:2-4
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
