What’s your potential?


I have decided that I have yet to reach my fullest potential.  And that I will not quit pursuing that goal as long as I have strength to keep on.  I am looking for folks who have the same mindset, folks who want to make that journey and who want partners along the way.  I believe we can learn from each other.

Recently I heard someone say, “Strength comes not from skill but from our indomitable will.”  While I believe that at the most basic level our strength comes from the Lord, I  believe that on a human level our strength does indeed come from a place deep within us, a place far deeper than skills come from.  We can develop skills to get us through doing what needs to be done if we have a good enough reason.  But a longer term solution is to find a way to get things done that is based on what’s there already.

Someone else said that adversity has a way of introducing us to ourselves.  There are things about me that I will never know until I have been tested.  Learning what is inside myself gives me the confidence that I need to keep going when things are tough.

So, my word to myself and to you if you are listening is, dig down and find out what’s inside you.  And give thanks to God who made you exactly how you are for this.
