Have you ever thought you were not qualified 

to do something due to a lack of talent?

The channel to change is not outside of us.

 It is within us.

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 Guide.

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 


Let us be encouraged to keep trying, keep practicing. 

Keep at it and keep pressing on... because learning 

is a process. 

As is always the case, patience and practice makes us 

better... it improves us. Doing something over and over 

again is the only way to learn to do it well. To become 

proficient or skillful at something... it takes time. Use will 

make us good at it.. it may even allow mastery.

May we always remember and never forget: there is 

always room for us to get better at something.

Practice improves us... 

it makes us better.

Attitude is a choice. Faith is a choice. Graciousness is a

choice. Pressing on is a choice. Whatever choice we 

make... makes us. May we choose wisely.

Our imagination is powerful!

God may not 

show us more

God wants to take 

us from strength 

to strength; 

from glory to 


God loves us too much to 

promote us before we are ready.

 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 calloused 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.

To learn any new skill or gain expertise we must 

practice, practice, practice.

We have come to realize that focused, deliberate, 

purposeful and systematic practice improves our 


As we work constantly at the edge of our ability...pushing

 and pressing on... our brain changes in a way that is 

incredibly powerful. As we continue to reach higher and 

dig deeper, regardless of our age or station in life, we can 

press on as much higher, more responsible and productive

 citizens who see ourselves differently and do what the 

doubting Thomas' thought was impossible. 

We must press and push... 

push and press.

Let us pray on it, pray over 

it, and pray through it... and

then watch those prayers 

provide results.

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.
