A Day that Ends with No Regrets

Hey, I'm Jonathan. I'm a senior Bible major from Knoxville, Tennessee, but right now I'm traveling in the Southeast on the Proclaim Drama Team.

I've really enjoyed my college experience and all the great things I've been taught at PCC, but I have been amazed at the things I've learned outside the classroom.

Everyone always says that your junior year is the busiest year of your college career. I’m not even sure who “everyone” is, but he was right.

In the spring semester I was busy with all my classes, performing in a play, working, playing sports, and tons of other little things that no one tells you about before you get to college. I hear so many of my friends (and myself included) saying things like, “Wow, I couldn’t have gotten through that without God.” Well, I learned that—

You CAN.

You can go through a day and choose to leave God out of it. But every time I did, either my day was terrible, my relationships with others were stressed, my attitude was out of check, or it was a nasty combination of the three. On those days I would either go to bed restless in my spirit, or I would find myself in the prayer room crying to God.

Choosing to let God be a part of our everyday life is a decision we all have to make. I can confidently say that each day I choose to let God lead in my life, it is a day that ends with no regrets.

    That is so true. Striving to live everyday with no regrets. I heard a saying once that went something like this: “God has given me this day to use as I please. When tommorow comes this day will be gone forever leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain and not loss, good and not failure in order that I will not regret the price that I have paid.” Each day has a consequence. Sometimes when I lay my head on my pillow at night, I wonder. What is the price I have paid for today? Is my Saviour smiling at me or is his head bowed at the sight of my selfishness or foolishness? So many times we live for the moment, and we waste so many days of our lives. I wish I could say that I lived my days with no regrets. There is always today, though. God is giving us a second chance even now. Thanks for the encouragement and reminder to live with no regrets!
