"Be a Now Person"

I always find it fascinating when I have something on my mind or an issue is weighing me down then out of the blue I get an email, phone call or letter about whatever it is I am thinking about or dealing with. It is apparent providence is at work.

This morning I read an email from Joel Osteen’s daily message and it was exactly what I needed to read. He wrote:  

What could be worse than to come to the end of life filled with regrets? “If only I had pursued that dream. If only I had been more disciplined. If only I had taken that step of faith. If only I had forgiven.” Don’t let that be you. You may have put things off a lot longer than you should have, but the good news is that it’s not too late to get started. You can still become everything God has created you to be. 

Today, make the decision to stop making excuses. If you always make excuses, you’ll always have one. Don’t wait for a more convenient time. It says in Ecclesiastes, “If we wait for all the conditions to be just right, we’ll never move off of dead center.” Make a decision to just do it! Be a now person. Your destiny is calling out, and it’s never too late to be all that God has created you to be.

Sometimes that is all a person needs: A reminder that you cannot stand still and let life pass you by. A great life is one in which you are LIVING.
