God brings into being concepts of change & time.

Life has no remote control. I am my own remote control! I must get up and make the changes in my life I want to see.
Those who learn how to adjust & adapt will have the best results.
How do I spend my time? I don’t have forever! Don’t hang around the wrong crowd.
Get up! Take up your bed! Stop making excuses! Excuses represent my looking for the remote control.
