I had not really planned on taking a trip this time of year, and yet I found myself packing rather hurredly.

This trip was going to be unpleaseant and I knew it in advance hat no real good would come of it.

I am talking about my annual guilt trip.

I got tickets to fly on “I wish I had” Airlines, it was an extremely short flight.

I got my baggage which I could not check, I chose to carry it myself all the way there.  

It was weighted down with a thousand memories of what might have been.  

No one greeted me as I entered the terminal to the regret City Intl Airport.

As I checked into the “Last Resort Hotel”  I noticed they were going to be hosting this years most important event

Annual Pity Party.

Well, I wasn’t going to miss that great social occasion, because most of the leading citizens would be there.

First attending would be The Done Family. You know:

Should Have Done

Would Have Done  and  

Could  Have Done

Then came the “I Had” family

You know, old

Wish I Had and his clan.

and of course “The Opportunities” would be there.

Missed Opportunities and Lost Opportunities

Buth the biggest family - the Biggest Clan of All would be the “Yesterdays”

There are far to many of them to count. but each one had a very sad story to tell.

Then Shattered Dreams would surley mak an appearance, and “It’s Their Fault” would regail us with stories and excuses about how things had failed in their life.

Each one would be loudly applauded by “Don’t Blame Me” and “I Couldn’t Help It”  

Well to make a long story short Iwent to this deppresing party knowing that there would be no real benefit in doing it

As usuall I became very deppressed but as I thought about all the stories brought back from the past, it occured to me, that all of this trip and subsequent pity parties could be cancelled by ME AND ME ALONE!

Jesus has done everything for us and there is evidence that He has not ONLY forgiven OUR sins but he has REMOVED the guilt

It is up to us whether we are going to believe it or not, and STOP LIVING BY HOW WE FEEL- BUT START LIVING BY THE WORD OF GOD.

Joyce Meyer said when she finally realized her guilt trips she was taking was not helping her behavior all it did was break the heart of God, and make her act worse.  

This made me cry but I realize it is true. I work hard every day to stay OUT of The City Of Regret!

and I mean WORK HARD
