Potential 2020

We are on the verge of completing another year of life.  And we sit here in the final days of 2019, realizing that 2020 (just like every year) is filled with potential.  We are going to be able to experience “unrealized ability” in 2020.  We realize that God has plans for us that we know not of, and He is eager to stretch us and grow us in ways we don’t think possible.


We are able to change (just like in “physics”) and become a better version of ourselves.  This is an opportunity make New Year’s Resolutions to our selves, to others, and especially to God.  We are able to read the Bible more, pray more, give more, share our faith more, and generally change.


We are on the precipice of “releasing energy” that improves things around us.  Think of dynamite for a minute.  Dynamite, “stored energy” can be destructive in many ways, but “dynamite” put in a sparkly firework can entertain thousands.  We can spend our time “spending energy” that is destructive; worry, gossip, faithlessness, selfishness, etc.  Or we can spend our energy in productive, smile inducing ways; hugs, prayers for others, serving, etc.


What is your “potential” for 2020.


Let’s find out together,

Potential generally refers to a currently unrealized ability.  The term is used in a wide variety of fields from physics to the social sciences to indicate things that are in a state where they are able to change in ways ranging from the simple release of energy by objects to the realization of abilities in people.
