Create new possibilities

God has given us the ability to change what is possible in our lives. He has given us the ability to shape our future.

There are some things in life that seem impossible.

For me, it is writing a book, running a successful business, and becoming a full-time blogger.

For some, maybe it is going up the career ladder or finding the love of their lives. And for hundreds of millions around the world, it’s getting out of poverty.

Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with a condition in my left eye where my vision has become impaired. It has become harder for me to work with this condition and my dreams only seemed to become even more impossible.

In times of desperation, I only prayed even more. And while my eye cannot see clearly, it is my faith that makes me see ever more clearly that God is with me. And with God, nothing is impossible. (Luke 1:37)

He is the One who gave us the ability to change what is possible in our lives. He has given us the ability to shape our future. Creating us in His likeness, He has given us the ability to create new possibilities in our lives.

Remember then the Lord, your God, for he is the one who gives you the power to get wealth, by fulfilling, as he has now done, the covenant he swore to your ancestors. — Deuteronomy 8:18

This ability is the bridge that will allow us to get out of our impossible situations and into the limitless possibilities that God has in store for us.

It starts with believing that God is with us. Then, we reimagine what’s possible in our lives. Finally, we put in the work with faith.

Are you in a difficult or impossible situation? Create new possibilities.

P.S. And when you have created new possibilities in your life, help others do the same.

As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. — 1 Peter 4:10

God will reward your hard work

If you have faith, you will continue working hard. Because you believe that God will reward your hard work.

It can be discouraging to work when we’re not seeing the results of what we’re doing. It can be frustrating when we are not reaping the fruits of our labor and perseverance.

Some of us have given up on our dreams. Some of us have stopped acting, making a sales call, sending a proposal or a job application, or writing a book.

Some of us have lost faith — in ourselves, in our dreams, and even in God.

For six months, I thought of giving up on writing (again) and just focus on my day job.

Aside from having more responsibilities at my job, I was also feeling discouraged because I wasn’t seeing the results that I was hoping for. I wasn’t seeing the growth in my blog’s readership and my mailing list.

But I realized that if I truly trusted God, I would keep working on my dream and keep writing.

Because if I truly have faith in Him, I would trust that He rewards hard work.

Maybe we’re not yet seeing the results. Maybe we’re not yet reaping the fruits of our hard work.

But, let us work hard anyway — hoping and trusting that God will reward the work of our hands.

Are you feeling stuck, discouraged, or hopeless? Keep working anyway.

Have faith and show it through your actions.

Our rewards will come in His perfect time.

In His perfect time.

May the favor of the Lord our God be ours. Prosper the work of our hands! Prosper the work of our hands! — Psalm 90:17

See beyond the wall

We have to see beyond the wall of hopelessness not with our eyes, but with the eyes of our faith.

See_Beyond_The_Wall.jpg

In our journey, whether in life or in chasing our dreams, we sometimes come across a towering wall that prevents us from moving forward and onwards.

There is no way around it for it also spans infinitely wide.

This wall is called hopelessness.

This wall of hopelessness casts a shadow of despair over us. We want to give up. We see no way out. We begin to think that this is where our journey ends, that this is how things will be for the rest of our lives.

This wall of hopelessness blocks our vision for the future. It prevents us from seeing the plans God has in store for us.

In the face of this wall of hopelessness, we have to see beyond the wall not with our eyes, but with the eyes of our faith.

Only then will we be able to start climbing or breaking through the wall.

When we reach the top of or break through the wall, we will see more clearly, with our own eyes, the future God prepared for us.

And we can, once again, move forward and onwards.

Abraham believed, hoping against hope, that he would become “the father of many nations,” according to what was said. He did not doubt God’s promise in unbelief; rather, he was empowered by faith and gave glory to God. — Romans 4: 18, 20

P.S. As I start blogging again, I hope I can help you in my little ways to see beyond the walls that are preventing you from seeing the future God has in store for you.
