I'm browsing through a book called "The Power for True Success" written by the Institute in Basic Life Principles. When I read the title on one of the pages "The "Secret" of Character Building - Knowing it is Impossible!" I was dumbfounded. Wait a minute, haven't we been taught that nothing is impossible; that we should not use the word "can't"? Aren't we supposed to believe that we can pierce that "glass ceiling" and we can accomplish the not yet accomplished? I want someone to tell me how I can reach new goals. I have been told already to stay in my place by some, and encouraged by others that we no longer have to be governed by these boundaries.
I am puzzled!
So I read further. We are reminded that keeping God's commandments is impossible but Deuteronomy 18:13 advises us to be perfect. What? Me perfect? Now that is impossible.
But when we strive for perfection, when we seek out the impossible, who can we draw upon, but God? Is there anyone else who never fails? It is impossible for God to fail. Jesus did not calm the storm until the disciples called on him. The storm was there before. Jesus was there, but the answer did not come until the request was made.
1. Are you comfortable with who you are? I think I am a work in progress. I sincerely hope in all humility that God will help me be a better me.
2. Are their goals you are striving for? To be a better me and if I can become debt free along the way that would be awesome. :-)
