Gambler #1

In the next number of days, I am going to dissect that old hymn by Kenny Rogers, “The Gambler.” Let me introduce to you the first truth in this phrase in the recording: “on a train bound for nowhere.”

Just how many are riding that train bound for nowhere? For them, life doesn’t really have a purpose and failure litters past efforts. They believe that they are only the results of the big bang theory and the apes of their ancestry are regretting ever planting their feet firmly on the earth. Accordingly, they are just traveling to nothingness.

The remedy for that philosophy is God’s truth.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Philippians 1:6

being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Think about it.
