Something to Ponder ... Gregg Lovey

To sinful patterns of behavior that never get confronted and changed,

Abilities and gifts that never get cultivated and deployed-

Until weeks become months

And months turn into years,

And one day you’re looking back on a life of

Deep intimate gut-wretchingly honest conversations you never had;

Great bold prayers you never prayed,

Exhilarating risk you never took,

Sacrificial gifts you never offered,

Lives you never touched,

And you’re sitting in a recliner with a shriveled soul,

And forgotten dreams,

And you realize there was a world in desperate need,

And a great God calling you to be part of something bigger than yourself-

You see the person you could have become but did not; You never followed your calling.

You never got out of the boat.

-- Gregg Lovey
