Do you know what a paralytic is? It’s a substance that causes a state of powerlessness or incapacity to act. In the movie, Awake, which highlights what this feels like, lead actress Jessica Alba undergoes surgery and remains fully alert while under the knife, unable to speak or do anything. How terrifying! Can you imagine what this feels like? Strangely enough I’m sure you have.
There’s an old saying that says “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”, and nothing could be more true. Your mind has power and it’s a power we all need in this life. It’s not enough to have dreams without power. How blessed are we that God has given us both. It would be a sad day to have been given a dream WITHOUT the power to make that dream a reality. We would be without hope and probably very angry at each other and God. Listen to this! “Your mind is power . Your dream is life.” Say it to yourself if you want. “Your mind is power. Your dream is life.”
No matter who you are, you have been given both. What are you doing with your power? Are you developing your mind? What are your goals in life? Actually, what are your goals for today? Here’s what I know. This goal will require effort on your part. Maybe it’s research, or money, or the involvement of others, but whatever it is you’re going to have to use your mind to make it all come together. It’s easy for dreamers to forget that they have this power. Much of our time is spent dreaming of a better world or things we want to accomplish, but we have to take it a step further and actually MAKE this a better world and actually DO the things we set out to accomplish. Use your mind today. Use your power every day. Bring your dream to life!
