James 5:12 “Above all, my brothers, do not swear--not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No," no, or you will be condemned.” (NIV)


Would have…should have…could have,
And, everything in-between;
In the valley of decision,
Always looking at where we have been.

Going forward is RISKY BUSINESS,
Stepping out…to who knows where;
We’ve never gone that way before,
So, we have nothing to compare.

Have you tried to go forward,
With your eyes on the rear mirror;
Next to impossible…isn’t it,
If…in life you want to be a player.

The game of life’s a RISKY BUSINESS,
But, give it all you’ve got;
What are the alternatives,
I’ve thought about it…a lot.

Would have…should have…could have,
To live your life…full of regrets;
Who really wants to live that way,
Nobody…but yet……

But yet…we do just that,
Decisions rarely made;
We sit back and do nothing,
In the game of life…we’ve not played.

Or…perhaps we’ve given life a try,
We’ve gone out…on a limb;
Just to have it cut off,
And, we’ve had to begin…again.

Yes, life’s a RISKY BUSINESS,
We can get burned…hurt;
It’s very likely that we shall,
At the game of life…we’re not expert.

Don’t be stuck in neutral,
Put life…into gear;
Move forward…just do it,
Go beyond that fear.

So, make informed decisions,
Give life…your best shot;
You’ll be surprised at the outcome,
And, all that you have got.

Your confidence will grow,
As you venture forth;
You’ll find life is worth,
All the invested time and effort.

When we step out…we would,
Into the things…we should;
We discover that…we could,
And, we find that life is very good!
