I came across a devotional today that spoke about the first 8 verses of Genesis 1. This is a passage of Scripture that gives us great insight into the intentional mindset of God when He put this world into motion.
How many times have I gone to bed at night thinking about my failures of the day? I can lie there, in the dark, and recount all of my missteps; replaying what I should have done differently. My mind will be filled with regret and guilt. I pray that my mistakes are not costing someone else a chance to have a relationship with Christ or that my wife or son will not be burdened by my decisions. Sometimes, it actually amazes me that God has allowed me to climb out of bed one more time.
