I really needed to read this today. It is like a salve to my wounded heart.

Derek Hill November 22, 2013 at 11:51 am

Hello KSR. Give all of your regrets to the Lord and He will heal your broken heart. Satan wants nothing more than to keep stabbing at you with all of the things you have done wrong, but with Christ you are a brand new creation! You are no longer the old KSR, but a brand new one! God bless you!

what do you mean by “Job’s regret brought him to utter ruin.”?

Derek Hill April 23, 2014 at 3:50 pm

Hi RDS. The verse I quoted is showing that he regretted even being born. He wished he would have died at birth. That was his utter ruin. I hope this helps you. Go bless!

Hi! David… I love what you said at the beginning of this article: “One of the biggest ways that Satan tries to get at us all is with regret. It is so easy to go back and relive memories that we aren’t proud of. Satan will do anything possible to get at us mentally. Regret can be a devastating monster if we don’t keep it in check.” I am considering using it as an epigraph in my upcoming novel called “Conceptions” I would of course give you credit. Wanted to make sure that is okay with you! Let me know… you can message me through my website if you’d like to http://www.wendyoleston.com

Regret was killing me in the inside, I left my hubby’s church to join a prophetic church, but now am realising the mistake, I just apologised to my husband today, and am thinking of restitution, going to my old church and make ammends, i left the church in a rude way, never said good bye properly to the elders and the leaders. The devil was bombarding me that there is no way out, this is unpardonable, but from reading your article am starting over again, its how you finish that matters

Yes definitely its not too late. I had a similar situation and didn’t return though knowing it wasn’t right.

Eric September 25, 2017 at 1:34 am

Thanks for this. The adversary sure makes me dwell on things I cannot change. I have a lot of regret and anger. God said he would never leave or forsake me. I have Gods word and that should be enough. Whatever days Yahweh has for me I want to make them count. I don’t want to die on a bad note.
Thanks Eric Smith Kentucky

I don’t know if this site is still even up or if anyone reads or answers. I am filled with regrets over the death of my daughter. Our last communications with each other, text and in person, were me being not very nice to her. She always needed more and more reassuring but would never do anything to help herself. Anyway, she died a few days after the not very nice communications, died in her sleep, and it turned out she had been ill and was just not taking her meds. She said I had stopped talking about things except to yell at her, and that was partially true. Regardless, it’s how she felt. I have prayed to get over this feeling of guilt, and yet part of me tells me I don’t deserve to, because maybe I am partially responsible for her death. I hope someone can say something to me that makes sense. Thank you for listening.

Hello Lucia. I am so very sorry for this heartbreaking situation you are in. God is the God of mercy and grace since all who trust in Jesus have all their sins cleansed (1 John 1:9) so now you must learn to forgive yourself. I don’t see you as the person responsible for her death but this was a medical condition. There is no evidence you caused her death but she didn’t take her medicines so please don’t blame yourself. Please read this and I will pray for you: https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-forgive-yourself-a-christian-commentary/

Lucia, I hope this is not to late. We all make mistakes we cant change. The lying devil loves to use regret to destroy us. Recently I heard a sermon by a preacher who had lost his adult son, naturally the pain of grief and regret was a constant bother. This preacher told how the lord showed him how to use his pain to help others, instead of just wallowing in it, Today he is a member and speaker for a group of parents who have lost children. Knowing what its like, qualifies you to help others. We cant see Gods big picture, but we still must play the role we’re assigned. May God bless you Lucia.

I am having a a lot of regret regarding a situation with my mother. I’m consumed with regret on a daily basis. I don’t feel worthy of anything. I feel like I’m a horrible person. Please help me find a way to forgive myself.

Jack Wellman February 26, 2018 at 8:37 am

Hello my friend. This may be just what you need Candace. Please read this about how to forgive yourself, and my prayers are with you. https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-forgive-yourself-a-christian-commentary/

Candace, what I would say to you and Lucia was that at least you are truly sorry and feel guilt. There are so many truly wicked, psychopathic people in this world who go around deliberately hurting people and don’t feel any remorse whatsoever. And then there are decent people who hurt others out of momentary anger or misunderstanding the situation or by mistake and they beat themselves up about it and can’t stop. If you feel remorse you must be a good person and deserve to forgive yourself. There are so many people who did really cruel, despicable things to me when I was down and out, and they have no guilt whatsoever. When I would run into them occasionally after all the damage they did, they would give me a big, triumphant grin, like, “Ha! Ha! We got away with what we did, and there’s not a thing you can do about it.” Of course, some day they are going to answer for it. The point is, I think the very fact that you feel so much guilt and regret means that you are a person who is truly sorry and not a bad person and you should forgive yourself. And Lucia too.

Regrets comes after people do wrong things in their lives which makes them to turn away from God others risks their lives after knows the truth so let create time to pray for people who regrets so that they could return to Jesus and conference their sins as David, Peter Judah and others did in the Bible. Thanks
