A night or so ago, I heard SOMEone say, "If there are regrets in heaven, I think one BIG one will be that we didn't ask God for more."
While I'm pretty sure there won't be regrets in heaven (at least not like we think of them and experience them here in this life), I have thought about that statement quite a bit.
My husband had been sitting awkwardly in an more upright chair the past few days. Today while passing the day in the cardiac unit with my husband, I noticed a recliner sitting in the hallway. I asked a nurse if it was possible that he could have that recliner moved into his room. "No problem," she said cheerfully. I DO regret that I hadn't seen that recliner yesterday or thought to ask for one. He looks so comfortable in it, doesn't he?
The Bible DOES say, "You do not have because you do not ask God." (James 4:2) I am going to be less timid about asking God for mercies and graces, heart's desires and blessings. I don't want to miss ANYthing He wants to give me!
