What could have been?

The thought of this title draws me closer to an awesome awareness of God. I realize that I do not have to live under the umbrella of what could have been. I can live under the umbrella of provision and hope that God provides for me because He is bigger than all of my situational circumstances.
Apart from God I do not have to live tangled in the regrets of life, because He is making a way where there seems to be no way. I only have one regret from all the choices that I made and that is the regretful trail of debris that my past criminal record has left. After all these years I still have trouble getting certain jobs, I cannot go into certain professional fields of work and that bothers me.
Even in the middle of this memory I have shared with you I can rest in hope that God knew what I was going to do before I did it and a way has been made for me to prosper, be in good health and to have hope. Life is so full of many choices, many outcomes and many new beginnings. If I will embrace the process that I am in right now then the chances of me have regrets tomorrow decrease dramatically.
It is important not to abandon ship when the sea of life is rocky and foaming up things from the deep. Don't let the howl of the wind for the force of outside circumstances send you running from your giant rather than towards your giant. With out God I would say do what you can and hope for the best but with God all things are possible. You can embrace the process you are in with hope, honesty, love and integrity knowing that some one is on your side. You are not alone, the Creator of Heaven and Earth is wanting to release to you His fullness.
