It seems there is a national day for everything possible. There is actually a site where you can sign up to have an email notify you each time a national day is to be celebrated.
As if I don't have enough emails arriving daily pressuring me to read them!
But I digress. I was talking about spilled milk.
I was thinking back, trying to remember if there was any mistake I would actually go back and correct if I had an opportunity.
Don't get me wrong, I've a boatload of regrets. Things I wish I had done differently. And I've made plenty of mistakes. I'm certainly not perfect.
The thing is, though, that it all worked out.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the bible tells us that our steps are ordered of the Lord. In fact, the Word goes on to say that if we stumble, we'll never fall because He is holding our hand.
God has a plan for our lives and He is big enough to get us back on the path if we stumble off the course. (Remember Romans 8:28 - everything works together for good ... in the end.)
So yeah, I've spilled some milk before - often a whole jug. But even as there have been big messes to clean up and expenses that would have not had to be paid had I not been so careless - or clumsy, there was no need to cry about it. Learn from my mistakes and go on.
The truth is, I'm right here where God wants me. I've got a life to live and a calling to keep. Time to press on and don't look back.
