Have you ever wished you could go back and do things differently? Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and make different decisions that took you to places that you would rather not be?

As this year winds to an end, it is gives each person time to look back not only on the past year but their entire lives.

More people think about Jesus this time of year than at any other. You hear people say "He is the reason for the season." The thing is he is the reason for all the seasons.
You are the sum total of every decision you have ever made - good, bad or indifferent. Neither God nor the devil can be blamed for where you are in life. You are where you are and have what you have because of your decisions.
