Our regrets can be redeemed for something good. We can fall backward or we can step forward. God not only forgives us for what we did wrong or what we failed to do, but he wants to use that to propel us forward to start fresh. God takes the failures and mistakes to help lead us to new territory. God uses those regrets to build on to make something better – that’s upcycling or redeeming our past mistakes, sins, and failures. We learn from our regrets but refuse to live in the regret. We allow God to change us, the way we think and act, to become a better person with God, rather than apart from him.
