Confession

 

If you could erase parts of the past, would you?


A cruelty spoken to a friend. I'm sorry.

A terrifying thing. 

A thought. Too many thoughts. Most are a waste of time.

Fear. It is the mindkiller, you know. 

Not doing something great. Coulda.

Doing something great. I am not sure I was supposed to do it.

Dread of things that didn't happen.


I would, all of it.


I wonder how it would change me.

  1. This is something we'll never know, what would it be like now if we would have taken a different road. Also seems like regrets only come with age.

  2. There are many parts of my past I wish I could erase too.

  3. We all wish we could go back and undo some things and redo many things, but life goes on and we have to let go of the past and move forward into the Light with God's grace and peace.

  4. I have regrets. I wish I could speak to myself at thirteen and tell him it was never worth it, the damage done to myself. But I can't, so all I can do is protect myself.

  5. I would like to erase parts of my past and correct the mistakes I have made, especially towards people who have loved me like my 2 wonderful parents.

  7. We would be different people if we went back and changed things and probably would't have gotten it right then either. :)

  9. I have many regrets.Never thought of getting things erased, but I daily ask God for forgiveness. I also ask forgiveness from the souls I think I might have wronged them.

  10. Life is like a film. But you cannot wind the film or tape back and start again.

    God bless.

  11. Sandy that is something I often think about “if only I didn’t….” “If only I could….” and what if the Lord would give us the opportunity to go back in time so we could repair the damage? I wonder why He doesn’t give that as an option? But He is the Alpha and Omega, He is outside of the constraints of time….and He does and will in the future repair everything He sees needs repairing, so it is outside of my control or ability to change, but not outside of His abilities. There resides my hope.

    1. Walked out this morning
      Don't believe what I saw
      A hundred billion bottles
      Washed up on the shore
      Seems I'm not alone at being alone
      A hundred billion castaways
      Looking for a home

      (These are Sting lyrics)


      Thanks, Susan.

  12. None of us can erase things we did or said. Or things that were said or happened to us.

    That is why it is imperative to forgive. People can change, they can regret, but they cannot undo the past.

    I pray that I forgive those in my life that have wronged me, even if they don't remember or don't care. Forgiveness maybe easier if someone asks for it, but it has to be unconditional or it's not real.

  14. Hi Sandi,
    parts of my past I would erase, yes, but some of it I would not. Things I may have done before I came to the Lord which may not have been right according to the Word of the Lord would help me to understand others who do the same, and if I have empathy then I have sympathy and am able to pray for those people with understanding. God bless.
