God's power, within us,
can transform us


We can become stronger,

 more confident, 

more capable, 

and resilient

when we allow the light

within us to be our 


As we follow God,
He will direct our steps.

“Whether we turn to the right or to the left,

our ears will hear a voice
behind us, saying,

“This is the way; walk in it.”

Isaiah 30:21

Though no one can go

back and make a



anyone can start from


and make a brand new 



God may not show us more than the very next step.


God wants to take 

us from strength 

to strength; 

from glory to 


God loves us too 

much to promote 

us before we are 


 Here's something to ponder:

 A man was sleeping one night in his cabin 

when suddenly his room filled with light, 

and God appeared.

The Lord told the man He had work for him to do,

and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin.

The Lord explained that the man 

was to push against the rock with all his might.

So, this the man did, day after day.

For many years he toiled from sunup to sundown,

his shoulders set squarely against the cold,

massive surface of the unmoving rock,

pushing with all his might!

Each night the man returned to his cabin 

sore and worn out,

feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain.

Since the man was showing discouragement,

the Adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture

by placing thoughts into the man's weary mind.

(He will do it every time!... that's Satan's job)

Satan: "You have been pushing against that rock 

for a long time and it hasn't moved."

(Thus, he gave the man the impression 

that the task was impossible and that he was a failure.)

These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man.

Satan said, "Why kill yourself over this?

Just put in your time, giving just the minimum effort,

and that will be good enough."

That's what the weary man planned to do,

but decided to make it a matter of prayer

and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.

"Lord," he said, 

"I have labored long and hard in Your Service,

putting all my strength to do that which you have asked.

Yet, after all this time,

I have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter.

What is wrong? 

Why am I failing?"

The Lord responded compassionately,

"My friend, when I asked you to serve Me

 and you accepted,

I told you that your task was to push against the rock

with all of your strength... which you have done.

Never once did I mention to you 

that I expected you to move it.

Your task was to push.

And now you come to Me with your strength spent,

thinking that you have failed.

But, is that really so? 

Look at yourself.

Your arms are strong and muscled,

your back shiny and brown;

your hands are callused from constant pressure,

your legs have become massive and hard.

Through opposition you have grown much,

and your abilities now surpass 

that which you used to have.

True, you haven't moved the rock.

But your calling was to be obedient and to push

and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom.

That you have done.

Now I, my friend, will move the rock.."

At times, when we hear a word from God,

we tend to use our own intellect to decipher 

what He wants,

when actually what God wants is just 

simple obedience and faith in Him.

By all means, exercise the faith that moves mountains,

but know that it is still God 

Who moves the mountains.

When everything seems to go wrong...

Just P.U.S.H.

When the job gets you down...

Just P.U.S.H.

When people don't do as you think they should...

Just P.U.S.H.

When your money is "gone" 

and the bills are due...

Just P.U.S.H.

When people just don't understand you...

Just P.U.S.H.

Pray on it, over it, and through it.

With God directing our

path we can confidently 

run, press, and rise

knowing that God knows

where we need to go 

and how we need to grow. 

 God designed it all and works out everything

to its proper end.
