Photo: It was, really!

    Yes, you can make an excuse to get out of anything, but is it legit?  We think if we make an excuse to get out of a problem then the problem goes away...wrong.  We've only deflected the problem to someone else. 'When someone truly cares, they make an effort not an excuse.'
    Why do we make excuses?  I think it's because our heart just isn't in it.  I think excuses work exponentially, we come up with one then another and another.  We talk ourselves out of doing things much easier than why we should do them.  It is our selfish self that prevails at the crossroad all too often.
    Worldly desires are often why people make excuses to surrendering their lives to God.  The focus is on what is seen rather than the unseen, which is Biblically backwards.  Someday may never come for some, but today just never seems right either.  When is the time going to be right?  There is no time like the present and we are not promised tomorrow.


  1. Best ever! sadly, we contractor's hear these type excuses all the time!!

  2. I hear a lot of people say they will call me back, I need talk to someone about it, and they never intended to call me back. Or I will check into that and let you know. Make up your mind if you don't want to do something say NO. don't lead someone on.. Yes is Yes and No is No. Good Blog.. Dad

  3. We seem to always do what we really want to do....and somehow we find the time to do it. It is a matter of choice. We need to learn to never miss an opportunity to be a blessing. Much love, my friend....T.
