When Five Seconds Changes Your Life.… by me J.L. Russell
A five second decision can change everything, as well as for those around you, for the rest of your life.
What am I talking about…..
The five seconds you look away to text someone while driving. ~ You look away just for 5 seconds, the next thing you know you swerved out of your lane into the path of another vehicle, taking the life of someone.
The five seconds when you let your temper get the best of you. You lose control, doing something to someone physically injuring them if not taking their life.
The five seconds when you let words come from you that cut someone deep into the heart. You say words that deeply hurt someone, even though later you say I am sorry, the words have done their damage.
The five seconds when you got behind the steering wheel when drinking or high. When you started the vehicle and pressed on the gas peddle and in so doing you crash taking a mother, father, aunt, uncle, child, grandmother, grandfather away from people who loved them.
The five seconds when you first decided to start using drugs. Those five seconds turn into a month after month search to get your next high.
These and the many other bad five second decisions you may make can change your life and forever give you a life sentence of “if only”.
But there is one five second decision that you will never regret, one that will give you a great reward, one that will be life changing and life altering. What is it you ask……. its when the words “I give you my heart Lord” come from you, that’s a five second decision you will never regret. I pray many make this life changing decision today.
