I realize that if I don't know Christ today, I would be a pretty unhappy person. That's because looking back, I see that my childhood wasn't exactly happy, I studied the wrong subjects in college, didn't work at any jobs that really suited me, and wished that I had done so many things differently. I rather felt sorry for myself for having wasted most of my own life. Do I regret my past? Now that I have found Christ, the answer is a resounding "no." It's this past that lead me to Christ. The joy has wiped out all the sorrows! What the past was like is no longer relevant because having Christ is all that matters.
