We all should know it’s what one does that count, not the intentions one has, and plans start out as “good intentions,”  but that doesn’t mean a thing until you put them to work.

“Good intentions often are just that, good intentions, and just another way of saying,  “I am going too.”  Those words are almost as bad as, “When I get the time.”  We may mean well, but neither one of those comments has ever completed anything.

I am going too, are just words devoid of desire, effort, and accountability; although in some instances they are said in good faith.  This still requires action on our part, which is the only guarantee that whatever it is, will happen.

I will be the first concerning this post to admit I am guilty of the “I am-A-Gonna'” crime, knowing that statement has never reached the finish line.  Just saying or wishing and hoping is not enough to get the job done, we have to want too.

It takes perseverance: A steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.  And in the sense of Theology, it’s a continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation.

I am happy to say that after a lifetime, I have finally finished an “I’m-a-gonna.”   I wrote and finished a book.  I Survived 60 Years to Get Cancer, Then Kill It./The Norvie l. Cherry Story and it took 6 long hard years to bear my soul and business.

Since I proved I could finish something, more opportunities have suddenly become available to me.  Some say, “When one door closes another will open.”  Blessed, and with favor from God, has now allowed plenty of opportunities to grace my life, even when I was merely fluffing them off.

Although the rewards would be enormous, I only did just enough to get over, causing me late in life to wonder, “What if I had followed through?”

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, and your values become your destiny.”   Mahatma Gandhi

My life could have been completely different if I had done a fraction of the things I knew I should have, or for whatever reason, I didn’t.  Go get a mammogram, laziness, no drive, whatever…The truth is: My life was saved because of the love Jesus Christ has for us.  I am a Living Witness that it’s never too late to validate your intentions.

“Desires dictate our priorities and shape our choices, and choices determine our actions.”   Dallin H. Oaks.

Even when we have a few minutes of a great idea, without motivation, we sometimes see our idea being a success for another who pursued it.  I saw my invention on  “As seen on T.V..”   No!  I don’t want to tell you or talk about what it was.  I am still sick of it.

FYI: Life is short and if you’re looking for an extension, you had best do well. ‘Cause there are good deeds and then there are good intentions.  And they are as far apart as Heaven and Hell.  Ben Harper.

Thank you, Lord, for giving us the ability to make good of our intentions to do good become a reality.  In Jesus name, we pray.
