It's Not Too Late

Updated: Jul 29, 2019

Sometimes we feel time has run out, but has it?

Is there still time?

Although it seems like I am surrounded With attacks coming on every side

Those I thought were in my corner

Are standing back waiting for me to run and hide

But they forgot that I serve the one true and living God

And His promises are yes and amen

So, it may look like it, but it’s not too late

For my God to turn this situation around in my favor, yet again.


Yes, the bills are steadily piling high

And the job search is going kind of slow

The severance package from the previous job is running out

And everyone I loaned money to before, keep telling me “sorry, but no”

The tension and the stress are building

The pressure and anxiety are constantly rising

But consistently, I call out to God, putting it all in His hands

It’s not too late for God to work a miracle that is uncompromising


That relationship I thought would work out, it didn’t

And for some reason, I guess I move too slow

For the ones that I have dated, have moved on

And I’m left in the shadows, watching the ‘show’

I’m not bitter, because I’ve been more focused on other things

So, I recognize it hasn’t been a top priority

But sometimes I feel like my presence isn’t a big deal

It’s not too late for God to shift the focus on me


I’m chasing a dream that I’ve had for awhile

And it’s growing and shifting and taking all kinds of turns

Sometimes I feel like I’m just marking time

Though this passion within me continues to yearn and yearn

Why is this journey seemingly so convoluted?

Father, help me see the path you have cleared

Remove the busy, the chaotic, and the crazy

I know it’s not too late for this dream to come to pass, regardless of how it appears


It’s not too late if God put it in your heart and has watered it day by day

It’s not too late if you’ve let God lead you in your yea as well as your nay

It’s not too late if you believe God will keep you regardless of what’s staring you in the face

It’s not too late if you’ve surrendered control to God to set the proper pace


It’s not too late even if you messed up and that person that really is for you, you let go

It’s not too late if you turned down that perfect job, and now someone else is running the show

It’s not too late for that wayward child, who acted out because of your absence

It’s not too late for that degree or that book, for life’s challenges have given you more substance


Perhaps it’s too late for that particular person, because now they have moved on to someone else

Perhaps it’s too late for that exact position, because now it is filled with greater wealth

But it’s not too late for God to open doors for you

It’s not too late, but you must believe it is true


Life’s detours are not always sent by the Lord, but often are because of our decisions

But it’s not too late to return to Him, and submit to Godly direction and vision

It’s never too late for God to step in and work His miracles on your behalf,

It’s never too late for God to replace sadness and depression with a new laugh

It’s never too late for God to remove anxiety and replace it with relief

It’s never too late for complete submission to God, so new life and new vision can be released

It’s never too late to seek God and work on right relationship with Him It’s never too late to repent and surrender and allow Him to provide a Day 1 again.

I open myself up to your perfect timing in my life; rebuking all fleshly anxiety and nervousness about anything that I thought was negated by my thoughts or my actions. Lord, move in a new and exciting way, showing me how to trust you with all of me, follow you more nearly, and surrender to you more completely. I welcome your leading me in your righteous paths. In Jesus' Name! Amen.

That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.

~Joel 2:12-13 (NLT)
