It is Sunday night, December 21st. It is also the shortest day of the year. That means two things:
- Winter starts today. =-(
- The days will be getting longer starting tomorrow. =-)
I like to think of myself as an optimist. It seems that there is always a bright side to any situation. Sure, it may not be evident right away but keep looking. When I think ahead to the next year, I see tons of potential. It will be an adventure trying to free that potential.
God is so incredible. He created me exactly like He wanted to. That is the extreme potential that I am talking about. As I continually lay my life down for Him, He can release more potential.
A quick illustration from the world of science. A roller coaster that sits on the track but never moves is full of potential. Even as that coaster is cranking up that first incline, it is still remaining as potential energy. Once the train gets over that initial hump and start to descend, the potential energy becomes kinetic energy. That coaster, at that moment, is doing exactly what it was created to do. Potential energy is stored energy waiting to be released. Kinetic energy is energy that is moving, it is being expended.
God gave me potential when He created me. I am thrilled because 2015 is going to be a year of kinetic energy. It will truly be wonderful to do exactly what I am created to do. I hope you find God in this amazing way.
So are you seeing the potential in yourself? Remember, it might be a little difficult at first but you have potential. It’s in there!
Look for some good changes in 2015! See you next year, Merry Christmas.
