|Brody helps Mimi illustrate "reach"|
When I first saw the word prompt "reach," I thought of the word used in these contexts:
- Just out of reach
- Reach out and touch
- When I reach the end of my journey
- Reach for the stars
When I thought about it, I realized the first and the last could relate when considered in the area of setting goals. You want to have a vision, a goal to grasp. Something that is just out of reach - something to strive for. However, you don't want to set your goal too low. You want to have something that would stretch you. Reach for the highest goal you can imagine.
So, envision something that would make you reach to your highest limit. A goal that would challenge you with every fiber of your being.
Along the way, set incremental goals, each one being just out of your reach. Your satisfaction when reaching each level will you give much joy and confidence.
Don't settle for a hum-drum everyday kind of life. You are capable of so much more! Your Creator has endowed you with the capacity to grow. He has promised to be with you each step of the way. When you reach the end of your journey, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you gave it your all!
(Okay, I was able to tie in 3 contexts. Yay for me!)
