😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you.  There’s a sign in the yard of a property that we drive by on our way to the park to walk.  The sign simply states…”What if?”  The sign is definitely working because it certainly makes me think and it brought me to this point of sharing it with you.  What if what?  That sign is meant for every one of us.  Those two simple words, six letters, will mean something different to each of us that read this. 

What if I didn’t go to work the day after my divorce hearing?  I wouldn’t have met my husband of 20 years. 

What if I wasn’t in such a hurry to get home with a new board game that Christmas Eve?  I wouldn’t have gotten a speeding ticket.

What if I wasn’t erroneously hired for a job?  I would not have been offered an even better job to try to correct the error.

What if I didn’t allow God to be a part of my life?  When I put distance between us, I was more anxious, fearful, insecure, angry…

What if I decided I didn’t want to take the time to write to you today?  (Actually, the thought crossed my mind.)  Honestly, I don’t know the answer to that, but maybe you wouldn’t have taken the time to talk with God today about your What Ifs. 

What if the only reason for me writing today is so that you take a moment and acknowledge God in your life.  If that’s the only reason, then I’m pleased to have been His instrument.

As the song goes:

“No regrets in the end.

I wanna know I got no what ifs”

Bless others and be blessed.

If the Lord has touched you in some way with His message today, I ask that you pay it forward by sharing this message, so that you and He may also bless others.  Click subscript to receive your message every Wednesday.

  1. Thank God for all the “what if” in all of our lives. As I think back on my what if, I can see how He turn all my mess to messages of great possibilities.
