Life, Hope & Truth

Speaking of... Life, Hope & Truth

There Is No Time Machine

If you could change one moment in your life, what would it be?

Imagine: one moment, rewritten to your liking. Maybe something you said. … Something you didn’t say. … Maybe you’d change where you were or what you were doing. … You could fix a mistake before it happened. … You could spare yourself the results of a bad decision. …

You could change anything.

After that one change, that one rewrite, how would your life be different? Not just in that one moment, but for every moment afterward? What new choices would be opened up to you? What new decisions would you have to make? What new paths could you now choose to walk down?

It doesn’t take much to realize that your choices lead to even more choices. Every decision you make leads you to make other decisions—and those decisions lead to even more decisions, and on and on until … well … your life comes to an end!

But—change just one of those major decisions and you could theoretically change the entire course of your life.

The truth is … there is no time machine! There’s no way to reach back into your past and tweak the moments that didn’t turn out the way you wanted. Whether to kings or peasants, wise men or fools—the door to the past is irrevocably locked. What’s done is done!

There is, however, one moment in your life you can still change.  And that is “now.” This moment. The moment you’re living and breathing right now. The past may as well be a million miles away, but the present is all around you, and nothing’s stopping you from changing it. While the decisions and choices in your past brought you to where you are now, the choices you make from here on out will shape your future.

Within the pages of His Word, God offers us the pathway to the most incredible future. But He also reveals the choices we need to make in order to get there. More than that, He explains to us the very reason for our existence—to be a part of something so big, so spectacular, that words cannot adequately describe it! He reveals that there will be, for the first time in the history of mankind, true world peace. A time when there will be no disease or wars, and no death or tears. And those who truly serve God will assist Him by serving as kings and priests on earth!

To get there, though, is a process. It means change. It means you changing. It means deciding what matters most to you and striving for it. It means overcoming the obstacles that stand in your way. It means dedication to a goal that happens over a lifetime—not overnight. It means becoming so much more than you are. It means becoming who you were created to be!

We’ve all made some bum choices in our lives. No one has the perfect past. But think about this: The perfect future is an option!

Contained within this book are the answers to choices you need to make to get there.

Interested? Good! Then your future starts now.
