What Would Happen If…

What would happen if we actually followed through on the promises and commitments we made to ourselves?

What would happen if ...

What would happen if we actually gave up sugar ? As in eat NO sugar like we have said we would do time and time again.

What would happen if we actually exercised three times a week every week?

What would happen if we wrote BEFORE we surfed the web or played solitaire or Words With Friends or Yahtzee With Buddies like we told ourselves we would do?

What would happen if we had our quiet time first so we didn’t get busy and forget to spend time with God like we want to do?

What would happen if we stopped and took a little time on the weekends to prep healthy food for the week so we weren’t tempted to drive through a fast food restaurant mid-week just because we are tired?

What would happen if we sat down every Sunday evening and wrote out the cards we know would bring a smile or slice of encouragement to our friends and family?

What would happen if we donated an hour of our time every week to minister to children or the homeless or the homebound or the sick?

What would happen if we put our phone down and listened to what our loved one was saying without distraction?

What would happen if … ?

We would know the outcome if we did the thing we said we would do.

We would bear the fruit, reap the benefit, enjoy the result and live the blessing.

That’s what would happen.

And any of us can do it. We just have to follow through, like a good golf swing. Don’t stop once you start, keep going, all the way through.

Find out for yourself what would happen in your life, your health, your writing (or business), your family time, your relationship with God.

I challenge you!
