Do you wish you could relive parts of your past?
Are there people you wish you'd gotten to know better?
Have you made mistakes that continue to haunt you in the present day?
I would answer yes to all three questions. While we cannot change the past, we can certainly change the present. We can begin living better right now.
If you don't want to have regrets, shower your favorite people with attention today.
If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. If you've lived a sinful life and hold no hope for the future, you still have time to turn things around.
Saint Alphonsus Ligouri says, "If you were promised all the money that you could count in a day, would you waste a second?"
Your remaining time here on earth is exactly like that. Only instead of counting money, you have the opportunity to do good to secure yourself an afterlife in Heaven.
Don't concern yourself with money, prestige or material possessions.
God doesn't care about any of those things. They're actually hindrances.
Some say, "Time is money."
But time is actually much more valuable than any material possession you can name.
You can avoid regret in your future by living a life of grace and love today.
Make love the guiding light of your life. Immerse yourself into living God's will, not your own.
Doing so is a day-by-day, moment-by-moment decision on your part. Make the effort. Do what you know you should be doing, what you were put on this earth to do.
ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING
If you're a young person, be aware that life passes in the blink of an eye.
Always do the right thing. With every decision, ask yourself, "Would God approve of this?"
If the answer is "No" or even "Maybe not", then don't do it. If you don't want to live a life of regrets, then don't do anything that will lead to regrets later.
It's obvious we are living in the end times. Anyone who denies that is an idiot. We all have to choose sides. You have to choose a side. Are you with God or are you with the Satanists?
Don't let fear dictate your decision. Don't let the bastards con or frighten you into taking a deadly, mark-of-the-beast vaccine.
Don't let them bamboozle you into believing their "anti-racist" claptrap.
It's all a magnificent hoax. Stand your ground. Look fear in the eye and say, "No."
If there are people in your life who don't understand this, who think you've gone off the deep end, cut them loose. Otherwise, you will be dragged down to hell with them.
Fear is contagious, you don't want people like that anywhere around you.
Love is contagious too. Are you up for the challenge? Are you up for saying "Yes" to love and "No" to fear?
