“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.”Â – 2 Corinthians 7:10
i’ve been thinking about the difference between godly sorrow and worldy sorrow.
i’ve been thinking that worldly sorrow leaves one with no hope — there is no salvation beyond it all.
i’ve been thinking about how this verse says godly sorrow “leaves no regret”.
i’ve been thinking about the fact that i have regrets — many regrets.
i’ve been thinking about how i feel as though i’m somehow not able to live beyond those regrets — like the things i’ve done that i can’t seem to get past will always drag me down and dictate who i am.
i’ve been thinking of the shame that comes with these regrets.
i’ve been thinking that i live with worldly sorrow.
i’ve been thinking that i’ve not be living as a forgiven child of God.
i’ve been thinking what a wonder it is to have the Living God work in your heart.
i’ve been thinking that He is so good.
