It doesn’t take much for something to change course, does it? Just ask the Texas Rangers. A near sweep of the Yankees in the ALCS propelled them into their first World Series. Before the Series started, many were picking them to win it. But like the honored idiom suggests…things can quickly turn on a dime. What seemed inevitable can escape us in an instant. What was a foregone conclusion can not come to pass, after all. What we think is going to happen just might not.
I’m not giving up on the Texas Rangers, though. I refuse to, for the same reason they are in the predicament they’re currently in. Things can turn on a dime.
The beauty of hindsight is that it affords us with the opportunity to look backwards. Often, when putting forth enough effort, we are able to look back and find pivotal moments- turning points if you will- where everything changed. In many instances, small things generated significant results. Remember… A spark can start a fire.
Every day, God places before us turning points. Every decision and every move matters. Keep that in mind, no matter where your life is currently headed. If its going in the wrong direction, the good thing is it can turn on a dime. If everything is well and good, don’t become complacent; it can turn on a dime.
