Whether it’s sticking to your fitness and nutrition goals, relational, studying, or spiritually, our lives are always filled with these moments of regression. Even though we may lose sight temporarily, the simple solution is to realize what you’ve done, refocus your energy, and get back up. Sometimes, if we don’t catch it in time, it ends up turning into a vicious cycle of doing well, then bad, doing well, then bad. This behavior isn’t good.
We must realize our mistakes, learn from them, and move on. Yes, we make mistakes all the time. You may be judged by others based on your mistake. You may feel low. You may feel dejected. You may feel regret. But the important thing is how you bounce back from these mistakes. Rather than regressing often or even in a predictable manner,, and defeat it!
How are we ever going to grow as a person if we’re continually making the same mistake over and over? How will we ever grow spiritually if we’re always behaving in the same sinful manner? We may be devoted to our schooling, careers, or hobbies. But is this a healthy devotion? Are you truly devoting your time to God and not making the same mistake over and over? We aren’t completely devoted to Him until we eliminate distractions in our lives to put Him first.
Just remember, it’s a choice. He doesn’t make us love Him. He doesn’t make us worship Him. It’s our own choice. Are you willing to live for Him or for earthly things?
