By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion. There on the poplars we hung our harps, for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign land? (Psa 137:1-4 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, it is not wise to look back and grieve over what was and is no more or what could have been but was not. Regret can steal my joy and prevent me from doing things I need to do for You today. Rather than grieving for the past or living in regret, help me look to the future that You have planned for me. Do whatever You need to do in my life today to enable it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
