You Can Begin Again

“The Lord is my portion, therefore I hope in Him.” La 3:24

When you haven’t accomplished what you’d hoped for, regret can become a major pastime. The computer analyst wishes he’d become an accountant, the accountant wishes he’d become a doctor, etc. Maybe you planned to leave a legacy, but to date all you’ve left is a trail of unfilled aspirations. It’s not too late; you can begin again! You just have to be prepared to pursue your dream and pay the price. You may have to step out of your comfort zone or make some sacrifices that were not part of your overall life plan. Don’t listen to the critics and complainers who’ve settled for less. Your goal shouldn’t just be to live long, but to make a difference in your world and glorify God. 

Charles Lindbergh said, “I feel I lived on a higher plain that the skeptics on the ground…Who valued life more highly, the aviators who spent it on the art they loved, or these misers who doled it out like pennies through their antlike days?…If I could fly for ten years before I was killed in a crash, it would be a worthwhile trade for an ordinary lifetime.” 

Look at Moses. Look at Paul. They both began again. Look at Winston Churchill. Instead of retiring after World War II, he went on to win a Nobel Prize in literature. When Heinrich Schliemann retired from business to look for Homer’s legendary city of Troy – he found it. 

Here’s a scripture you can stand on: “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion… therefore I hope in Him.” (La 3:22-24) That means you can begin again!
