So I had this picture taken of me at a youth conference once (I'm thinking it was like in 1999 or 2000). I kept it in a box with other photos from our youth events back then. About a year after it was taken I had a desk calendar that had cute quotations and I kept it on my desk at work. The day my birthday came up, November 28th, there was this amazing quote about "you'll never know to what heights you can soar until you spread your wings," and immediately I remembered that picture of ME with my arms spread wide. An eternal dreamer, I knew this quote was made just for me...and what luck, it was posted on my birthday!! And what a coincidence! I have a picture of me with my arms spread out just like the girl in the animation! I pulled out the picture and I framed it next to the calendar quotation and kept it on my desk until I stopped working after my first child was born. I had forgotten about it until I was looking through those old albums again a few weeks ago.
25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said, "Who then can be saved?"26 Jesus looked at them and said, "For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible."
I live by these standards. Just because something may seem impossible for me, I will still spread my wings and try...putting my trust in God alone. He will make a way where there is no way. I know for certain I am not worthy of His perfectness...but He has made me worthy of His love, mercy and grace. I know for certain that He bestows love and goodness only. I know for certain that He directs our paths and makes all things good. When I feel that tug or pull on my heart that I need to attempt something, try something that seems impossible but needed...I will spread my wings and try because I know WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!!
