Shining Moments

May 4, 2012

We can do so much more than we think we can. People tend to think small and aim low. But if we were to begin to get a glimpse of our real potential we’d be astounded.

So what are you doing that stretches you today?

Beyond your comfort zone…

Hanging onto the end of the branch type challenge..

Digging down deep within and letting yourself begin to sense the thrill of accomplishing more than you ever thought possible.

God loves the word Impossible!

Do you?

Again and again He leads people to face their giants

      And to walk on water

        Following Him

           Knowing that if they fail-they fail.

What’s your challenge?

The runner in me loves to go beyond what I think I can do.

The musician in me enjoys practicing again and again until I can play a piece that I didn’t think I’d be able to ever play.




Like taking a calculus course and passing it.

Or learning another language at 50.

Time after time I’ve sensed the call to do more

                                                                    and give more

                                                                        and be more

Fear always appears with those mocking questions

How in the world do you think that little ole’ you can do that?

I wither and begin to squirm at those ugly taunts and sneers.

But then I stand up straight and look fear in its frightful face and declare

   “I can’t!”

That’s the point, isn’t it?

We can’t. But there is One bigger and greater than you and I who loves to show Himself

Faithful and true.

In a world that cheers high self-esteem and applauds the self only to recognize its limits

Let’s look to the One who is Above All and live beyond our limits

    And into His Grace.

What do you think?

Look again at that challenge…

     Oh yes you can. Take His Hand and run the race of life with Him.
