What if I remained inside my little corner of the world? Hoping, begging, pleading, for the world to come inside to find me?
What if I wanted it all, but never stepped outside to find it?
What if the story I told myself every day grew bigger than the four walls that contained me?
What if I dreamed of climbing mountains so big that even I did not realize how much they contained until I reached the top?
What if the future was so majestic and powerful that if I could see it, there would be no way to contain it all?
What if everything I ever wanted was within my grasp the entire time?
What if I took the time to lift my eyes, rather than down? To look forward, rather than behind me?
What if God showed me miracles every single day, but it was I who failed to see them?
What if, instead of asking the question "Why me?" I changed it to "Why not me?"
What if everything I ever dreamed of was waiting right outside my door?
Psalm 121:1 - I lift my eyes to the mountains - where does my help come from?
What about you? Why not you? Share some of your own goals, dreams, accomplishments.
