What If...

I can't help but think that everyone has days (or nights) where "What Ifs" cloud your mind. I hope it's not just me searching through this meaningless and pointless fog. I hate to wish confusion on people...and I don't really mean it that way. If I could, I would choose to be out of the confusion rather than pulling you all in ( you're welcome (; ) Anywho...that's beside the point.

I guess I just feel like I'm the only one thinking back years or months or days and thinking "What if I handled that situation with more grace and dignity?" Or "What if that person never came into my life?" Or maybe even "What if I didn't struggle with that sin in that one instant? Would it change who I am today?" 

I feel like these are such meaningless and pointless questions. They're gone. Done. Over. Never able to be taken back. 

I'm not saying all "What Ifs" are bad. I think a lot of them are GREAT. You just have to make them that way. For example:
What if tomorrow I show someone Christ's love?
What if someone comes to Christ because I stopped and listened to them talk? 
What if someone who feels lonely needs me to be a friend to them? Will I take the challenge? 
What if I put away my selfish, ignorant pride and said those words that need to be said and heard..."I'm sorry". 

Just think about it...What if we changed our view on "What Ifs"?
