Power Up Passages

Faith That Can Move Mountains.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




May 9, 2004.

“The first step is to fill your life with a positive faith that will help you through anything. The second is to begin where you are.”
Norman Vincent Peale

As we travel through the journey of life, we all sooner or later reach a crossroads where we must decide which course we will follow: whether we will boldly blaze a pathway to a whole new level of achievement and happiness, taking a chance on making our lives everything we have dreamed they could be or instead simply choosing to stay right where we are right now. In these defining moments, when we stare our destinies right in the eye, will we choose to make all of those cherished dreams we hold close to our hearts come true or will we allow them to sadly slip from our grasp?

When we arrive at these turning points in our lives, those decisive intersections where what we do or don’t do forever shapes what we have or don’t have in life, will we choose to be a ‘have’ or ‘have-not’? Will we show the courage to take charge and step into the promising future that is there for the taking, pushing ourselves well beyond our present boundaries or will we instead give in to fear and self doubt and let the life we could have and should have lived pass us by?

“Faith in oneself... is the best and safest course."

The moment we happen upon these life changing junctions, where push can literally come to shove, we come face to face with one of life’s greatest challenges; where our faith is put to the ultimate test. Will we daringly push ahead into the exciting unknown or will we allow others to push us right back into our ‘place’? Will we keep the faith, both in ourselves and our God given abilities, or will we loose our resolve just when we need it the most?

Sometimes the only difference in winning and losing can be expressed in one powerful but underestimated word: FAITH — unwavering, unshakable, unrelenting FAITH! Richard M. DeVos couldn’t have stated it any better when he said, “The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.”

“In actual life, every great enterprise begins with and takes its first forward step in faith.”
Friedrich Schlegel

All of us have and hold all sorts of great and wondrous things deep down on our hearts and souls that we want to accomplish with our lives. Yet, over time, cruel twists of fate and misfortune can knock the wind from our sails; deflating our hopes and dreams if allowed to do so. It is at these lowest of low moments, when there appears little if any reason to carry on, that we must continue onward in our quest to make our dreams come alive — by KEEPING THE FAITH.

By carrying an unfaltering faith in ourselves wherever we go, we can overcome even the most overwhelming of odds. And by maintaining and constantly nurturing a steadfast faith in the enormous gifts and talents we possess, we can reduce the biggest mountain of an obstacle to little more than a molehill. With faith as our constant companion, nothing we desperately desire is out of our reach as long as we are willing to keep reaching and reaching until we get it. Anything and everything is possible with faith.

“Faith is building on what you know is here, so you can reach what you know is there.”
Cullen Hightower

Inside each of our chests beats a heart that yearns for the chance to make everything we have dreamed about doing, being and achieving come alive right now. We have everything it takes to make our lives everything we’ve hoped for and more; we’ve always had it. The only thing standing between you and the realization of each and every one of your dreams is faith.

Would our Creator ever allow any of us to conceive of kinds of beautiful, exciting ideas, dreams or notions if we were not capable of achieving them? Not a chance. In fact, just the opposite is true. If God brings you to it, faith can bring you through it.

If we can conceive of all of these wonderful dreams and then really believe that we can achieve them — with a fiery faith that cannot be throttled or held back — we can absolutely make them come true. Best of all, it only takes just a little faith to start. Since faith has a tendency to build on itself, by showing a little faith right now, we’ll soon have more faith than we’ll ever need to take us anywhere we’ve ever wanted to go.

Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.” We need to take FDR’s advice and forcefully move our lives forward by placing our doubts and reservations where they need to be — in the rear view mirror of life. Let’s leave all of those nagging and self defeating problems of the past being once and for all and summon the courage and tenacity needed to leap into life with both feet — with absolutely nothing held back! And don’t worry or fret about taking that leap. With faith at your side, you’ll sprout wings and soar into the future that you deserve.

The Bottom Line: Rather than risk allowing that life you’d love to live to slip away, why not take off and take a bold, daring, exhilarating leap of faith today and see what happens?
