A wise person said, “Though you cannot go back and make a brand-new start, you can start now and make a brand new end.”
Most of us can look back at life and see some attempts at disciplined living, goal setting and redeeming the time that started well but ultimately fizzled out. For example, after experiencing heart problems most people are willing to try a regimen of healthy eating and proper exercise. But, a leading cardiologist estimates 85% of his patients will quit their regimen within six months.
If you’re one of the many people who have failed in your physical, mental or spiritual disciplines, determine today that even though you have failed, with God’s grace as your source of strength, you don’t have to fail in the future.
There’s a saying, “All’s well that ends well.” Getting your focus on ending well, even if you’ve had a rough start, will give you the new start you need to redeem the time.
