Not Quit . . . But Almost    

Saddest Words I Ever Heard     


Growing up there was a song, "Almost," that started with the singer bellowing, "The saddest words I ever heard were almost...not quite, but almost." The lyrics illustrated various scenarios of almost achieving victory. But, the one I remember the most was the one where a guyalmost not quite likes this girl but he is too shy to let her know. Once he gathers the nerve to tell her, she is dating another guy. I often think about these lyrics and realize that so many people live them out every single day.


Almost is never good enough. This sad word haunts you about all of the missed opportunities you allowed to slip away. You were almost there, but you never quite hit the mark. So it is with many of our dreams and our goals.


We have them and we ponder over them year-after-year. We dwell in the land of "fit'tin' to" and we never quite can get to the land of accomplishing it.


When I was a young girl I remember a pastor telling us about his dreams. One dream was that he was going to have a great affair at Cobo Arena with renowned guests and singers and the place would be packed out.


Well, it never happened when I was young, but it did happen when I was an adult. Just like that guy who finally got up enough nerve to do it and it was too late, so it was with him. Sure, he had the event, but by that time the dream had fizzled to about 200 people in a place that could seat 12,000. He almost realized his dream, but he was too late for its complete manifestation.


Timing is critical when you are in pursuit of your dreams. There is an allotted time for everything and when the iron is hot, you just have to strike it hard when it is hot.


These are haunting words when you were so close to success but for whatever reason you didn't quite succeed. More often than not your inability to succeed is steeped in fear, just like the guy who was too shy to pursue the girl.


In a conversation with the pastor, he indicated that listening to others prevented him from pursuing his dream. You have to be so careful of those "others" who claim to support your dream when in actuality they are there to stop your dream from materializing. Everybody that says they are with you is not really with you. Especially when you share your dream and they find myriad reasons why you shouldn't pursue them.


Later for haters! Who need them? For sure, not me and not you!


You do need to have faith and passion in your dreams. You do need to have the courage to step out and to do them. You do need to be relentless in your pursuit. You definitely need to move away from the saddest words I've ever heard, "not quite, but almost."

Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage, and do it. Ezra 10:4 (KJV)


Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Heb 12:1 (KJV)


But I don't place any value on my own life. I want to finish the race I'm running. I want to carry out the mission I received from the Lord Jesus-the mission of testifying to the Good News of God's kindness. Acts 20:24 (GW)


And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words. Gen 37:8 (KJV)


And he gave word of it to his father and his brothers; but his father protesting said, What sort of a dream is this? am I and your mother and your brothers to go down on our faces to the earth before you? And his brothers were full of envy; but his father kept his words in mind. Gen 37:10-11 (BBE)


I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil 4:13 (KJV)





I am so close to achieving all You have shown me. I am ready to move out of the realm of almost into the realm of achievement. I don't want to look back and regret that I was so close to victory, but those haunting words bellow out that I was not quite, but almost successful. You created me to be successful and I will be relentless in pursuit of the fulfillment of my dreams. I will not stop or allow anyone else to deter me from my dreams. Fear no longer has dominion over me and will not be a catalyst in preventing me from forging ahead with perseverance and determination. Those sad words "not quite, but almost" are no longer a part of my vernacular. I can, I will, and I have achieved are words that propel me to victory.
