What do you wish wasn't true?

What do you wish wasn’t true in your life? Is it something about someone else? Then pray about what you can do to help them or about the situation without condemning. Then pray for them. Pray that God would bless them, that he would show himself in a powerful way to them and that they would be obedient to God’s will. Is it something about you? Then pray about your choices. Do something different to change it if possible. If it is something from your past then recognize the forgiveness Jesus has already offered you. Believe he forgives and live in this forgiveness. Then use the experience to help someone else. Remember, God never wastes a hurt.
We must be careful not to spend too much time, focus and energy on this aspect of life. The issue to understand what we can, and often should, do about things we wish weren’t true. There is so much we can do to make changes in us and the world around us. But sitting around bemoaning what we wish was not true is not beneficial to anyone and will only make you and those around you feel miserable. Evaluate honestly and then constructively make changes that God shows you in his Word and through prayer.
Let’s move forward and let God work in and through us to change us and our world.
