USING THE 'IF' WORD


Most of us have expressed regret with how our lives have turned out and how if we had done something differently, it would have panned out better...

We can all be wise in hindsight; it takes wisdom to walk circumspectly and learn to work with what God has given into your hand now...

It may have well been better if we hadn't gone bankrupt and now can't buy a home, or if we married someone else, or if we had not gotten pregnant or if we had chosen another career to follow... if if if- it's the shortest but most powerful word in the English language...

If can be the most challenging word we will face- indeed it was when Christ was challenged to throw Himself off the cliff to prove He was the Son of God... but for most of us, the challenge we face today is to handle the if's of life and put them in their proper place..

Where is the proper place for the if's? you ask. In the memory banks. In the learning curves and in the motivation to go forward in spite of their sometimes negative connotations..

If's can-  Depress. Restrain. Confuse. Anger. Discourage...  but

If's can- Motivate. Release. Challenge. Direct. Encourage... if used in a positive way..

Instead of allowing the if's in your life to paralyse and arrest your momentum and forward growth, use them to learn and reach up, overcome and fulfil your dreams...

Make the IF Word work for you, not against you. If's not the shortest most powerful word for no reason and it can work for you... if you use it wisely and positively..
