If I would have only listened to my parents I would have had a much easier time with the items I face today. I could have saved myself a lot of grief, anger and sorrow.
Would I change it? No I would not, but it could have been better if I had only listened earlier.
This is what the Bible is. Our Heavenly parent telling us the difference between good and evil. Showing us the path to a lighter load. We sometimes take a long time to get to the realization of a loving God that wants only the best for us.
Work through scripture and find the messages He wants you to hear. I venture to say, you will be blessed.
