“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” Henry Ford
I’ve carried a copy of this quote with me through three moves, from office to office and it now resides on the refrigerator of our current residence. I’m a total word junkie especially when the words bring courage.
Reality check: If our circumstance become the focal point it'll scare the Jesus right out of us but courage is the ability to do something that frightens us. That's what it's all about guys! Remain firm with courage when nothing but adversity is slamming us in the face. Life is one gigantic obstacle course but courage and faith equips us to reach for our goals.
While quotes can cheer us on in fear and uncertainty it is the Word of God which produces the greatest bravery, peace and hope. For instance, Isaiah 41:13 “For I hold you by your right hand— I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you."
Keeping your heart set on Truth will devour negative alarming moments you will face but it's a choice. We can camp in the land of obstacles and be held back OR we can bust through and run hard toward the finish line.
Now go after those God given dreams and goals, friends.
