What Would Happen?

What would happen if I started giving in spite of what I need?

What would happen if I stop making everything about me and consider others?

What would happen if I started praying for those who hurt or annoy me instead of rehearsing every offense for days after it’s done?

What would happen if I took a break from things that overwhelm or distract me and replaced them with quiet time  with Him?

What would happen if I began to focus on only the positive things in my life?

What would happen if I stopped begging God and started trusting Him to handle it in His time, His way?

What would happen if I had the courage to stop dreaming and start doing?

What would happen if I let go of my fear of others’ opinions and did what God’s put in my heart?

What would happen if I took God’s promises and directives personally, like they were written specifically for me?

What would happen if I made it my mission to be the best person I can be every single day, to reflect Christ’s attitudes and actions and compassion no matter what that day holds?

What would happen if I was willing to let go of my excess for those who are truly in need?

What would happen?

Grace would be given.

Love would be shown.

Peace would prevail.

Faith would be lived.

Change would be realized.

Needs would be met.

Jesus would be pleased.

And yet I live as if I don’t know the answers to these questions.

God, forgive me.

God, help me.
