Anyways, chapter 3 is called "Recovering a Sense of Power", which is a challenging one to read when you've let yourself get into the victim mentality and feel powerless. There are many things in this chapter that confront me in the way I'm living my life right now. However, this following quote really got to the heart of it in my mind.
Anyone honest will tell you that possibility is far more frightening than impossibility, that freedom is more terrifying than any prison. If we do, in fact, have to deal with a force beyond ourselves that involves itself in our lives, then we may have to move into action on those previously impossible dreams...Life is what we make of it.
I could go on and quote the entire chapter! No, really, I could. I have ideas. I have dreams. What would happen if i started taking action? What would happen if the impossible became the possible? What if God answered my prayers and dreams when I started taking action? What would happen then? What would it look like? Is the sky the limit?

I think of Sara and Abraham, past the age of bearing children, yet hoping for the promise of descendants more numerous than the stars. And yet, the impossible became possible with Isaac. A miracle happened when they answered the call to their deepest dreams and God met them there.
What about you? What if you started taking action on those "previously impossible dreams"? What would your life look like if God met you there? (Yeah, I find that frightening too. To the point where I can't even picture it! But I'm trying!!!)
