Never Late


You wake up,

look at the time

& see that you have more hours to sleep.

You wake up again,

look at the time & realize that

those more hours are no longer

because you overslept~

& there is no way that you

can make up for loss time.

Not a big deal,

yet it has put me behind.

But oh how something so little

has me a wee bit thrown off.

Oh the power of

ONE!

ONE more cookie.

ONE little anxiety exploding into panic.

ONE little fear paralyzes you.

ONE little thought becomes all consuming.

ONE little mistake that escalades into shame.

But oh how the power of

ONE

changes everything~

When you exchange your

ONE little anxiety

&

"Let the peace of CHRIST [the inner calm of one who walks daily with HIM] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]..." (Colossians 3:15)

When you exchange your

ONE little fear

&

“Don’t be afraid; just believe” (Mark 5:36)

When you exchange your

ONE little thought

by

"taking every thought & purpose captive to the obedience of CHRIST" (2 Corinthians 10:5)

When you exchange that

ONE little mistake

"If we [freely] admit that we have sinned & confess our sins, HE is faithful & just [true to HISown nature &promises], & will forgive our sins..." (I John 1:9)

I may be ONE hour behind today,

but I have the

ONE

who gives me so much more than I lost

because

JESUS

is the

ONE

who is never behind~

"For JESUS doesn't change - yesterday, today, tomorrow, HE'S always totally himself"

Hebrews 13:8
