Halftime Anytime

One of the reasons I wrote my book, WHEN I WAS 40, is to help everyone reflect, think and move forward. In the Introduction I said that at halftime the team reviews the first half of the game, then makes changes in strategy and attitude to play better and win in the second half. No matter how old you are, during your “halftime” you can decide whether or not you are pleased with your progress in the game of life. Are you happy with where you are or do you need to make some changes to end well or as the Bible says, finish well? I don’t know much about sports, but I know that halftime is important because crucial decisions are made. Results can cost the team the game or take the players on to victory. The decisions you make at your halftime can produce favorable outcomes for the remainder of your life. Are you making progress? Who are you listening to? Who’s coaching, instructing and mentoring you? Today’s decisions lead to tomorrow’s destinations. Where are you headed? As long as you have breath, you have another chance and the game isn’t over yet. It’s not too late to make adjustments. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. If you can imagine it, God can help you to achieve it. Ephesians 3:20 says that our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that you can ask or think. If you’re not sure where to begin, ask God for the wisdom you need and He will give it to you. You may not know what lies ahead, but God is the One to rely on if you want to be successful. You only see today, but God can see the future. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding. If you acknowledge Him in all of your ways, He will direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6). Put Him first. Never stop learning.
