In Retrospect

In-Retrospect

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve spent more time studying God’s Word.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve prayed more and worried less.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve been a good friend rather than trying to find one.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve eaten more veggies and less burgers.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve resisted hitting the snooze button so often.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve listened more and talked less.

In retrospect, I wish I gave more grace and less judgement.

In retrospect, I wish I looked after other’s interests more than my own.

In retrospect, I wish I would’ve taken more risks than always playing it safe.

In retrospect. What is you’re list? What is your “in retrospect”?

The book of Ecclesiastes is Solomon’s “in retrospect.” It’s a man at the end of his life writing his
book in retrospect. In it, there is both regret and hope. Realism and faith.

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

Live your life knowing that at some point you will look back on it in retrospect.
