Almost winning means you're losing. Almost passing a class means you're failing it. Almost telling the truth means you're lying. Almost making it on time means you're late. Almost obeying means you're being disobedient. Almost believing means you're doubting. Almost is not good enough and it never will be. We can't live a life of "ALMOSTS" and be satisfied with that. Golly gee am I learning that right now. Lot's wife almost made it out of Sodom but looked back longingly at what she was leaving behind and turned into a pillar of salt. The Israelites almost made it to the Promised Land but because of their rebellious hearts had to walk 40 years before making it. The rich man almost surrendered His life to Jesus but was too attached to his worldly possessions to let go (Mark 10). I don't want to "almost" do what God is telling me to do. I don't want to "almost" be the woman that He's calling me to be. I don't want to "almost" step into His calling for my life. I have to stop and ask myself... am I missing out on all the fullness that Jesus has for me because I'm not willing to go all the way with Him!? I hope you ask yourself the same thing today!!! Almost is not enough. Let's choose to be done with ALMOSTS!
