WHAT IF !!!!!!

What if, the two biggest words in the English language. We all asked ourselves the question  and we sit back and wonder what if. I know this is a tough question and as I was running this morning it had me thinking about myself and asking myself that question.
What if I did better in high school?
What if I did go to college?
What if I stayed in the military the first time I was in?
What if I stayed selling insurance?
What if the company I work for did not take me back after I left?
These are all questions that I think we can never answer and when you think about things you can what if it to death. What if we would have do this? What if we did it this way? Today is election day and I started thinking about that and I started asking these questions to myself.
What if the President did what he said he would do?
What if Congress took there job seriously and not just a position?
What if our Senators really did what they said they were going to do?
What if they looked at themselves and took the blame for there mistakes instead of blaming someone else?
What if? What if? What if?
I heard this song this morning and here are the lyrics.

What if the armies of the Lord

Picked up and dusted off their swords
Vowed to set the captive free
And not let satan have one more
What if the Church, for heaven's sake
Finally stepped up to the plate
Took a stand upon God's promise
And stormed hell's rusty gates
Chorus I:
What if His people prayed
And those who bear His name
Would humbly seek His faith, yeah
And turn from their old ways
And what would happen if we prayed
For those raised up to lead the way
Then maybe kids in school could pray
And unborn children see light of day
What if the life that we pursue
Came from a hunger for the truth
What if the family turned to Jesus
Stopped asking Oprah what to do
Chorus I:
What if His people prayed
And those who bear His name
Would humbly seek His face yeah
And turn from their own way
Chorus II:
He said that He would hear
His promise has been made
He'll answer loud and clear, yeah
If only we would pray
Bridge:
If My people called by My name
If they'll humble themselves and pray
If My people called by My name
If they'll humble themselves and pray
Choruses:
What if His people prayed
And those who bear His name
Would humbly seek His face, yeah
And turn from their old ways
He said that He would hear
His promise has been made
He'll answer loud and clear yeah
If only we would pray

What if we really did pray for the ones who are running our country? I think better things would be happening and our lives would be a lot better. Let's not think of what if we prayed for our country and seriously get on our knees and pray. No more what ifs and lets just do.

In my line of work, I've had too many bosses who did "what if" and got so wound up over stupid stuff that was never going to happen...that they'd "What If" everything into in action.

I only like "What if" if it's something that is really possible, not a figment of a dream...or a fear that overcomes some people into in-action.

The Church is starting to awaken to the "call" to arms through prayer. "IF" my people, that is us the church family to bear down and pray. We are to "storm" the gates of Hell and take back what the enemy has stolen from us. We are to enter the enemy's camp and set the captives free. Will you put on the armor of God and enter the fray and stand for Jesus, our soon coming King?

I often think of the 'What if's' in my life. All I do know is, if I had ever done even one of the 'What if's' I wouldn't have my daughter, my grandkids, my wife and the life I have now. So I don't wish I had changed any of the what if's since it meant I’d be losing anything I have now.

I agree with CoffeePot...so much to look back upon, which would have been better...but better would not have me here. And here is where I am meant to be.
Good post!
