We need never lose heart. No matter how much we believe we've messed up our lives, God can make something new and exciting and creative out of who we are right now.
Some things people might regret are: missed opportunities, bad choices, sin, bad behavior, things that have been lost.
God can use all that! It might seem like garbage to us but we give it God and He will recreate it to something incredible, something that actually adds to our life.
Some of the neatest works of art are pieces that are created from trash.
And how cool is it when we hear some smart scientist figuring out how to take useless trash and using it for energy or for the solution to some huge problem!
I am waiting for someone to make something great out of all the disposable diapers around the world -- when that happens, wow, think of the possibilities!
