Excuses. They are deadly. They hold us back. They keep us from accomplishing our purpose on this planet. They are hidden in phrases like, "I'm too old. I'm too busy. I just can't. I tried that already and failed. You don't know what happened to me. It's just too hard."
It's so easy to talk us out of ever trying. It's so easy to accept our present life situation and conclude our future will be the same. It demands no effort or energy to make excuses.
Why not try something different? Why not say to yourself today, "You know, it's never too late to get started. I can still become the person God created me to be. I will move forward. I will get started. No more excuses. I won't allow them to cripple me any longer. This is my time. This is my moment. With God's help, I will break those bad habits. I will forgive myself for past mistakes. I will train my brain to think good thoughts about me."
Try it today. See if it doesn't make a difference.
After all, as someone once said, "God can't steer a parked car."
