Every one of us came from something so small you’d need a microscope to see. Our imagination is limited when we think of cell division, multiplication and how large some of us have the potential of becoming in relation to our beginnings at conception. God has planted us in this world. And in each one of us, he has planted great potential. Some of us, due to uncontrollable circumstances, never have the opportunity to explore that potential. Some of us have plenty of gifts, tools, and opportunity to achieve and grow, but do nothing with it. Some of us have very little opportunity, but with grit, determination and laser-like focus, reach beyond and achieve more than anyone could have dreamed. The fact is this: We are created in God’s image. If that is the case, we should have within us the potential to do absolutely anything we set our minds to. And we have the ability to do it well! Granted, as we all know, some are innately gifted more in one area than another. Some are skilled artistically and some analytically. Some make fantastic councilors and some incredible leaders. What seed has God gifted you with? Everyone has one, two, three, or more. Everyone. Find that seed, run with it, put it to work with focus and determination. Use it to serve and glorify God, the one who gave you this chance, this life, this opportunity. We all get just one time around in this life. Turn off the TV, get off the couch, and make the most of it. Plant your seed, water it, feed it, put it to work!
Habakkuk 3:18-19 New International Version (NIV) 18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. 19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.
