Are You Ready?

Don’t let discouragement and failure stand in your way. God’s not done with you yet. I could write an entire book on my failures, but instead I try to follow the Apostle Paul’s advice, and I encourage you to do the same.

Forget your past mistakes, but remember the lessons learned because of them. We overcome the pain of regret by allowing God to rebuild our life.

Your past is forgiven, your present secure, and your future certain. Through Christ, you are a brand new person. If you truly grasp hold of this truth, it can motivate and encourage you beyond measure. Though the road ahead may be uncertain at times, the solid ground beneath will never shift. It’s all about Who you know.

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)

I Wish We’d All Been Ready
Life was filled with guns and war,
And everyone got trampled on the floor,

I wish we’d all been ready
Children died, the days grew cold,
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold,

I wish we’d all been ready,
There’s no time to change your mind,
The Son has come and you’ve been left behind.
A man and wife asleep in bed,
She hears a noise and turns her head, he’s gone,

I wish we’d all be ready,
Two men walking up a hill,
One disappears and one’s left standing still,

I wish we’d all been ready,
There’s no time to change your mind,
The Son has come and you’ve been left behind.
Life was filled with guns and war,
And everyone got trampled on the floor,

I wish we’d all been ready,
Children died, the days grew cold,
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold,

I wish we’d all been ready,
There’s no time to change your mind,
How could you have been so blind,
The Father spoke, the demons dined,
The Son has come and you’ve been left behind.
