It’s Never Too Late…


May I just say, it’s never too late?  Speaking from experience, it’s never too late.  There are lots and lots of things in life that can smack you right in the face, and some of them may even make you think there’ll be nothing afterwards, so why go on?  There have been times my heart has hurt so badly in my chest that I was sure I would simply die.  There truly IS such a thing as “heartache” and when your heart aches, my how it can twist your thoughts.  It can make you believe there’s nothing left to live for.  If there’s more pain like this ahead of me, you might think to yourself, what on earth would I want to continue going through it?  Why, why, WHY would I want to go on?

Why?  Because it’s never to late.

You may be a prisoner in a loveless marriage, or you might be a prisoner to drugs or alcohol, or something else that has you in a complete stupor.  I know what that’s like too.  It can make you do things and say things and be a kind of person you only thought you’d only ever hear about, but never be.  It can make you doubt your sanity, and make you doubt there could ever be any good left in you.  And it can make you think they’d be better off without you.  But you can’t give up!

Why?  Because it’s never too late.


You may have lost the one person in your life that meant more to you than any other person or anything else.  You may have watched a loved one breathe their last breath, and at the same time, taking a piece of your heart as they passed on into eternity.  I know that feeling too, I do.  You may have no one else, no friend or family member to turn to, but still, you can’t give up.

Why? Because it’s NEVER TOO LATE!


I know, because I’ve been there.  I’m not going to delve into all of it at this time, because it doesn’t feel like the right time.  But maybe it is THE time, that you need to hear, friend IT’S NEVER TOO LATE!

Listen to this… it’s a song that has gotten me through some pretty rough times.  After all…

And let me say before I go… if you are in a place where you just don’t think you can take another step or another breath, and you don’t feel like you have any tears left to cry, PLEASE, talk to someone.  People care, they really do, and I pray right now, that if you’re reading this and you’re in that place, that God will cause someone to cross your path to be just that person.  You don’t have to tell them your life’s history, but sometimes just bouncing thoughts off someone else helps to clear your mind, helps give you a place to send those thoughts that are battering away at you day and night.  It helps.  And don’t forget…

It’s never too late…
