Finding Your Own Potential
When we’re little, we often wonder how amazing adulthood would be. We think about the freedom, the fun and the ability to be who we are without being dictated by our parents. And in that moment, we forget how lucky we are.
We put down our metaphorical paintbrush for the much serious fountain pen and wonder when our life will begin.
But by doing so, we forfeit the right to our creative skills that God has bestowed upon us.
Now, you may argue about the banality of such a statement. Of course you haven’t let go of your creative skills, you’re not so out-of-touch that you don’t remember how to be creative anymore. You’ve just…grown up.
But that, my dear reader, is the basis of our problem. As we grow up, we let go of that aspect of our thinking because we feel that it is childish, when in fact, that person is who we are at our best.
Misplacing Our Youthful Thinking
“Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you.”
First Kings 3:12
Adulthood is all about growing up and broadening our horizons. However, in our quest to overcome and conquer said horizons, we often let go of the things that kept us connected to a happier world.
When we are little, everything seems possible. Yet, we wonder as grown-ups how silly we were to think so. Nevertheless, there are many among us who claim their dreams, and storm the castle to win what they feel they deserve.
What makes them the winners is their connection with their passion for a dream they had when they were young—when their creativity and intrigue boasted their potential.
Seeking Your Hidden Potential
One quote in the Bible speaks highly of His wish for us to seek our true potential.
And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.”
We have been made in His image, and we have been encouraged for our purpose. But because of our quest for a more superficially satisfying life, we have let go of our true self.
