“No one knows what he can do until he tries. Do not let countless job promotions and opportunities pass you by for fear that you would not be able to do what is expected of you.
Such fears are baseless.”
Handel wrote his best music after his doctors had told him about his impending death. While Beethoven wrote the Fifth Symphony after he had become deaf.
Three of the world’s greatest poets – Homer, Milton, and Dante were blind men.
Hannibal and Lord Nelson, both outstanding generals, each had one eye.
Daniel Defoe wrote the classic Robinson Crusoe while in prison. So did John Bunyan with his Pilgrim’s Progress. Martin Luther translated the Bible in the Castle of Wartburg.
Dante wrote for 20 years in exile while awaiting execution, Cervantes wrote Don Quixote in a Madrid jail. The apostle Paul himself wrote his epistles joyfully while under arrest.
Hold on to your dreams. Tell God about them and if He approves them, lift them up in prayer and they will come to pass. Without God, it is not worth dreaming about them.
