He continues, “. . .there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin.” He rightly concluded, “that these obstacles were my life.” Live now, don’t wait to begin living!

If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. (James 3:13)
