When Things Don’t Seem to be Working Out

START OVER

When you’ve trusted God and walked his way

When you’ve felt his hand lead you day by day

But your steps now take you another way…

Start over.

When you’ve made your plans and they’ve gone awry

When you’ve tried your best and there’s no more try

When you’ve failed yourself and you don’t know why…

Start over.

When you’ve told your friends what you plan to do

When you’ve trusted them and they didn’t come through

And you’re all alone and it’s up to you…

Start over.

When you’ve failed your kids and they’re grown and gone

When you’ve done your best but it’s turned out wrong

And now your grandchildren come along..

Start over.

When you’ve prayed to God so you’ll know his will

When you’ve prayed and prayed and you don’t know still

When you want to stop cause you’ve had your fill…

Start over.

When you think you’re finished and want to quit

When you’ve bottomed out in life’s deepest pit

When you’ve tried and tried to get out of it…

Start over.

When the year has been long and successes few

When December comes and you’re feeling blue

God gives a January just for you to…

Start over.

Starting over means “Victories Won”

Starting over means “A Race Well Run”

Starting over means” God’s Will Done”

Don’t just sit there…………..

START OVER.

Life did not Happen by Accident

“The probability of life originating from accident is

comparable to the Unabridged Dictionary resulting

from an explosion in a printing factory.”

As you scroll through the many posts you either find  or post on your phone or your computer are checking through them to make sure they really are something that needs to be said?  Sometimes we need to stop a moment and really process what we have just typed.  As you do so I encourage you to use this as a test or guidepost: Is this something I would not say out loud because it would seem inappropriate or unnecessary?  If you heard your child saying the same thing about somebody at school (making fun of something they said or did that was embarrassing) would you tell them not to make fun of others because it can be hurtful?  Do we really need to share with others the mistakes we saw others make that if we made ourselves we wouldn’t want anyone to know about?  Instead of using the internet to share all the mistakes or embarrassing moments of others, why don’t we take the time to use it to share the successes and moments that have made others proud?  Is it possible that we are allowing the “Prince of this earth” to trick us into harming one another?  This is something only each individual can determine for him/herself but I think it certainly worth thinking about.

Wondering What your Purpose is???

You have only one life,
 and no one else will live it for you.
  Shouldn’t you take the time right now
   to figure out what that life is all about?

-Harry Browne
