Endless Possibilities

Some call them dreamers. I call them possibility-thinkers. They are problem solving, solution oriented people, who refuse to settle for the way things are. They seem to have endless possibilities.

What about human beings flying? "Not possible," everyone argued, "besides, we don't have wings." But just enough solution oriented people continued to pursue the idea. As big and heavy as it is, it can still get off the ground, climb to 35,000 feet, and cruise at around 600 miles an hour. Years ago someone had a dream, a vision, and focused on looking for solutions. And today, we just go online and book a flight.

All through history men and women have dared to dream, dared to think outside of the box. These determined people believed that there was another way, a better way, or in some cases, a brand new way.

If we really believe that we are God's children and that He is our Father, why not look to Him for solutions and possibilities? One key in shifting to that kind of thinking is to stop asking, "why?" and start asking, "how?"

Ask God how to overcome the situations you are faced with. Then keep looking for solutions. What may look impossible to you is never impossible for God.

God promised us to give us the desires of our heart. He also promised to light our path. When one is discouraged and sitting by the road, there is no path to illuminate.

So, look up, get up, and start moving forward. You don't have wings, but you can still fly. What else can you dare to do? With God, you have endless possibilities.
