Everything is possible for one who believes.

Anything is possible if a person believes.

Everything is possible to the one who believes.

As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes.

Yes. I would have assumed that Jesus didn’t quite mean everything or anything, but when I think of one of His followers saying ‘I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength’, I have to face it; it must be that He meant exactly what He said.

Wow! That’s something to think about.

I’ve found that during the transition from one year to the next, we are often in a relatively excited state and we dream big dreams, think big, make resolutions and hope for a better year than the previous. But as the celebrations come to an end and decorations are taken down, our confidence in some of those aspirations begins to dwindle and we begin to contemplate whether it’s worth it at all to try.

Before you take a pen and cross that item off your list, I think you should just take a moment and imagine yourself with that dream realized. Would it make you happier and your life more fulfilling? Is it worth believing for? I ask because the critical thing is believing – having confidence or faith in the truth or the assertion that everything is possible. If it is worth it, then fight for it. It’s a good fight – the fight of faith. Fight to keep that dream alive; fight to put a plan in place to achieve it; fight to work daily towards accomplishing it; fight till what once was only a thought or an idea in your mind become a reality.

Nelson Mandela said ‘It always seems impossible till it’s done’.

So go for a smart start, and when faced with obstacles, ask how; and in the midst of it all, keep believing that all things are possible!
