We’ve Got Potential

I always love talking with little kids about they think about for their lives in the future. Their little worlds seem so huge and so accomplishable at their young ages. Wouldn’t it be nice to go back to those days when there was nothing you could not become?

As a 5-year-old, the concept of presidency or sports has no limitations, as if one just chooses to become that person. Soon they learn the hard work it takes to arrive at that place.

I wonder though, what might happen if we all decided to learn to live with that potential just out of reach.

What if we decided today that our best potential WAS within arms reach and all we needed to do was set a goal and work our tails off to get it?

As we start our church in Shippensburg something is becoming very clear to me.

We are only as good as our belief in a great God.

In other words, we will only go as far as our faith will take us. Some of us reach this lid of our potential way too early because we’ve never faced the fear of the unknown. The unknown is a scary place because, well, it’s unknown. It’s like scuba diving into the dark ocean. Have you ever been scuba diving? I have, and I can tell you it’s one of the most thrilling experiences on earth. On the surface all you can see is water, but as soon as you get beneath it, it absolutely comes to life! The unknown becomes known. You experienced it!

Your life is filled with incredible potential, and all that stands in the way of you experiencing it is falling off the edge of the boat and into the vastness of the ocean of all that God has for you.

For me, the thing I feel that holds me back from my potential right now is time and money. So to combat that, I’m seeking to become better about time management and I’m learning to increase my cash flow so I can fill my potential. They’re not barriers, they’re simply darker shades of ocean water.

Get transparent with me for a minute and talk about this here,
What are the things that hold you back from your great potential?

And what is something you can do to face that fear rather than letting it become the lid of your life’s potential?
