Being Good? :)
You have NOTHING except today. God is not impressed with your past. He is not DEPRESSED with your past. He doesn’t CARE about your past. Wooden boy or girl, or not... superstar or crumb, IT MAKES ZERO DIFFERENCE. TODAY is who you are. PERIOD. Who will you be TODAY? Will you worship, or NOT? You CHOOSE the answer. Nothing whatsoever “affects” today except what you CHOOSE. At the end of the day, you either decided to WORSHIP, or you made excuses, or you ‘forgot’ because your priorities were self-worshipping. At the end of the day, did you lay down your life for other REAL people, in MEASURABLE ways? Or did you make lame excuses about the past, or someone else, or just never got around to it because you were SELF centered? You CHOOSE TODAY. Yesterday won’t help you. Yesterday won’t hurt you. Yesterday doesn’t exist. ONLY WHO YOU CHOOSE TO BE NOW MATTERS. PERIOD.
*The truth is* that there is no better time than now to be happy and a worshipper. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to admit this to yourself, and decide to be happy, and to be a constant worshipper anyway. Treasure every moment you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with special people... and remember that time waits for no one.
So stop waiting until you finish school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have children, until you have a good job, until you retire, until you get married, until the weekend, until you get a new car or home, until your new car or home is paid off, until your spouse treats you right, until spring, until fall, until winter, until summer, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, or until you die... to decide that there is no better time than right now to be a worshipper. LIFE is a journey, not a destination.
Work like you don’t need money,
Love like you have never been hurt,
and dance like no one is watching. : )
