Theodore Roosevelt said, “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” My question is; what is your star? What is that thing that can force you to go to bed late and wake you up while many are in deep sleep? What’s it that can pick you up to walk again even after a frustrating fall? What’s it that gives you a smile in times of weeping? What’s that one thing that keeps you strong and gives hope in times of hopelessness? If you have it, then you have found that star he talked about. Keep moving! For as long as you have with you the three keys to personal excellence (The will to win, the desire to succeed and the urge to reach your full potential), you shall reach your star. I know that you know what I am talking about, but knowing isn’t enough, you must apply and do. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up on God’s gift to us; you must try one more time if you’re to succeed. Believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities – for without confidence in your own powers, you cannot reach your star that God gave you as the guiding light in the darkest moments of your life. Your talent is God’s gift to you and what you do with it is your gift back to God. – Mark Farouk
We are only able to grow and succeed in life as long as we stay in God’s Word and pray without ceasing. There’s nothing we can do on our own – and by the same token, there’s nothing that God cannot do through us! He is the Vine and we are the branches… our own ego must go on the back burner and we must fully lean on God to guide and direct our path. God is our guiding Light – our Star – like the star that shone over the manger in Bethlehem for the Wise Men.
If we want to be wise… we will follow the LIGHT, the STAR that will never lead us astray. As He shines on and in us, we shine His love and peace to others. I love how God works, don’t you? 🙂
