I Am Possible

Every dreamer is familiar with these lines: "That is impossible. Wake up dreamer, face reality. No one has done it before. You don't have what it takes. Who do you think you are? Are you any different from those who have tried and failed?" These lines are negatives. They are dream-killers. But they only kill dreams that the dreamer permits.

When the dreamer doesn't give permission, the dream lives. He or she uses the negatives as fuel to power the engine that makes the dream come true. Ask any dreamer, the story is the same. "It wasn't easy. I was all alone. No one believed this would come true. I had to make a choice, to rewrite impossible as I Am Possible". That is the breakthrough.

I Am Possible is a bold statement of faith. It means we believe God isn't done with us yet. And if He isn't done with us, then anything and everything is possible including our dreams coming true. Jesus Himself said, for men it is impossible but with God all things are possible. So, when you are told it's impossible write with God, "I Am Possible".
