Capsule for the Day

Life is full of possibilities. We can be any thing we want to be, if we are ready to die to who we have always been. It is hard to choose to die to the person we have been known to be. But then dying is part of growing. To be the person we want to be, we have to die to the person we have been.

It is like driving. You can't expect to be at point C if you aren't ready to part company with point A. All this demands some discomfort, some pain and believe me, there is a cost involved in every step of the journey. Dying to the familiar, then stepping into the unknown could be scary.

But to settle for the familiar because we are scared of the unknown, keeps us in a rat-race, running round and round. Somehow, we have to choose to die, to say loud and clear, "I don't want to be this person anymore". God didn't create us to settle for less. He wants us to be more; with Him, we can.
