Jesus said to her, " I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" She said to him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world." John 11:25-28

No Regrets

Daily Post Prompt: Kick It
What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?

It’s blank.

The Bucket List is the film from 2007 starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman who, together escaped a cancer ward to go do things they wanted to do before they died. I have not seen the movie, but I assume this is where everyone got the idea to make such a list. I have been blessed with pretty good health so far. Maybe if I had a terminal illness such as these men in the movie, I may submit a new blog which contains a bucket list. Or would I? Read on…

I think the bucket list is just another way to try to avoid regretting aspects of life. I do not need a list for my regrets as I confess them daily. I regret conforming to the world. I regret not being more bold in my faith and sharing how God has touched my heart at one of the lowest points of my life. That time when I truly did not deserve the loving arms of Jesus and the Grace extended to me. Mercy showered on me not for anything I did, but simply because he loved me right where I was, in the middle of my pathetic life.

I do not have a bucket list. If I can live with a Galations 5:22 heart, I will never need a bucket list.

Galatians 5:22 New International Version (NIV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
