Do It Again( RE-POSTED)

Many times…Almost daily, I find myself in renumeration…of what MAY go wrong.
And each thing, or “list”, rarely does.
I was just looking back, at the words, ” MAY go wrong”. The word “go”, stood out to me.
Anywhere we travel, we have to know the directions, to get where we are intending to go, or we MAY, make a WRONG turn, right? Get where I’m going with this?
Well, look at this…

If we don’t want “things” to go “wrong” in our lives, we need to heed, some direction..

If we just bought, or rented a new car, to go on a trip, we would and should, read the vehicle’s ‘manual’ and keep a ‘roadmap’ with us, to get us to where we need to go, safely, right?
It’s the same with our life’s journey. It CAN, be a “trip¡!”
And we could go about it safely, if we read the “Manual and Roadmap”, and heed Its “DIRECTIONS”, for our Lives.

That “manual”,or ‘”roadmap”… THE Instruction Book for Life, was given to us, almost 2000 years ago.
Yes…The Bible.
That word alone, can strike fear, apprehension, dread, even hate, in some. But it is @ Book written because of, about, and by…LOVE..

Many, believe, it’s a book of don’ts. In actuality, is a book of more do’s, and than don’ts.
Sort of like when our parents told us, “do this and that, and you can be anything you want to be, or do. But don’t….Or….”
I know, you “got the picture”.

We could save ourselves, and others, a lot of worry, and “nail-biting”, if, when we find ourselves remunerating, renumerate on all the times that our worrying was for naught.

God’s Word says, that He will NEVER, EVER leave us, nor forsake us.
We may not feel Him at our lowest times. Yet, He IS there!…
ALWAYS… Watching over us, with His LOVE, and protection.
.Sometimes, He is just waiting.
Waiting on us, to admit our NEED…For Him. Then, tell him what we need, from Him. He WANTS to give us ALL good things. He WANTS us to be, Happy. But, we can only be truly happy, In Him.

There is an old, favorite hymn of mine, “I Need Thee Every Hour”.
But, I need him, every MOMENT!
I couldn’t make it, with my predisposition for worrying about things, “things” that may NEVER happen! And 98% of the time, don’t.
The ones that do, are the ones that I KNOW, require my attention, beforehand. but never asking for God’s help, and placing my trust in HIM, to help me in that area…So.etimes in our harried lives, we just, forget…The One who NEVER forgets, us. Forgetting to be still, quiet, and ever listening for the answer, or to His Spirit’s guiding voice.
Instead, I we Just WORRY. How much sense does that make?

For most of my life…in My life, I did, what a lot us do…
” Try and Try AGAIN!”. “If the first time(s) you don’t succeed, read the ‘Instructions’ “.
Do you find yourself doing that? I know I still do.

“What ‘Instructions’, come with Life?!”, some say.
“Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual…you just gotta get out there! Do the best you can do”.
This quote, from the Late A.L. Williams, has always been one my favorite, I’d tell just about anyone that “fretted”…
“All you can do, is all you can do. And all you can do, is ENOUGH!”, which is the Gospel Truth…If, you add, one more thing… “And, when you’ve done all YOU can do, and you’ve HAD, ‘enough’…. Read…’The instruction…’Book’

Why take a chance? Wasting time; even years…Our lives.
THIS “MOMENT” , offers its “present”. This precious “GIFT”. Our lives.

Stop worrying about your life. Read ‘The Book’.
If you like ‘NonFiction’.
Oh, and…Beautiful ‘Autobiographies’.

Thanks for letting me share,

Walking around these walls
I thought by now they’d fall
But you have never failed me yet
Waiting for change to come Knowing the battle’s won
For you have never failed me yet

Your promise still stands Great is your faithfulness
I’m still in your hands
This is my confidence… You’ve never failed me yet.

I know the night won’t last
Your word will come to pass
My heart will sing your praise again
Jesus you’re still enough
Keep me within your love
My heart will sing your praise again

Your promise still stands Great is your faithfulness Faithfulness
I’m still in your hands This is my confidence You never fail
Your promise still stands Great is your faithfulness

You move the mountains And I believe

Where there was no way And I believe
