Do It Right Now, Sometimes Later Becomes Never
There’s nothing as bad as the sad memories of a lost opportunity. Lost opportunities, it’s a gift from God to have an opportunity. When you
woke up this morning God gave you an opportunity. What can be a better gift than to get an opportunity? And what a tragic waste it is to have
an opportunity and not use it! Not maximize it, not live it to its fullest and to assume you have tomorrow. How arrogant of you, to assume that
you have tomorrow. When in fact all you have for sure is right now. Get it right, right now. Get it said, right now. Get it done, right now. Open
your heart, right now. Write the letter, right now. Express the love right now, because if you don’t, I can tell you from experience, coffins can’t
hear. And regret is poor company sitting in a nursing home saying, “I miss my turn.” I can tell you this; age doesn’t give you a do-over. It’s terrible
to be divorced and miss your marriage. I’m ready to be a good wife now, it’s too late! I’d be a great parent now, the kids are gone!! They’re here
a moment, they’re gone the next moment. If you don’t get it right, you don’t always get a do-over. You’d be surprised at the written books in this
room. The businesses that are in your head, that never get built, the ministries that are in you that are never evolving, never created. The
poems you didn’t write the songs you didn’t sing. The books you didn’t create. The job you never went after. The interview you didn’t pursue.
The chance that you didn’t take. This message is for you.
