Why Not?

There is a poster in my office which is entitled “Imagination”. Below the title is a beautiful picture of a lighthouse and the following words:

Some people see things; and say, ‘Why?’

I dream things that never were; and say ‘Why Not?’

That poster has been in that same place in my office for years but this was the first time I really looked at it and READ IT.

As I sat back in my chair, the biggest smile appeared on my face because I knew that God was letting me know that He had great things in store for me. I had begun to dream again about things, which at the time seemed impossible. All I could say with a smile was “why not?”

There was a time when I was very passionate about photography and taking pictures that glorified God. But I allowed things and people to temporarily quench it. As I looked at that poster I knew the passion was back. Why not? I immediately began researching the type of cameras I wanted and as I looked at the cost, all I could say was why not? I began to re-read the vision God had given to me and realized a lot of that vision had to do with worldwide photography. I knew God was asking me “why not?”

What about your dreams? What about the things you are passionate about? What about the vision God has given to you?

Ask yourself why not? Who said you could not do what God has told you to do?

Ephesians 3:20-21

Amplified Bible (AMP)

20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]-

21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).


Remember this:

God is who He says He is.

God can do what He says He can do.

With God all things are possible!


Final Words!

God has given to you a vision. Circumstances, life in general, people, money, you name it can cause you to never reach for what God has given to you. Surround yourself with people of vision. If you have not taken the time, write your vision and frame it. Place it where you will see it everyday.

Never give up!
