Jesus once said that with God, all things are possible, and the great thing about life with God is that your next step is always possible. That step toward God is always waiting, no matter what you have done or how you have messed up your life. Jesus was hanging on a cross with a thief hanging next to Him, and Jesus turned to him and said, “Today you will be with Me in paradise.”
There is always a next step.
-- John Ortberg in The Me I Want To Be
