"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a Heaven for? All things are possible to him who has faith. Because faith sees and recognizes the power that means accomplishment. Faith looks beyond all boundaries. It transcends all limitations. It penetrates all obstacles. And it sees the goal. Faith never fails. It is a miracle worker." - Henry J. Kaiser courtesy of W. Clement Stone in Of Whom shall I be afraid?
To me this passage about faith refers to more than just faith in God. I believe that it applies equally to ones faith in themselves for without this confidence in ourselves and our abilities we are almost destined to live in a world of fear and doubt. By being proactive, strategic and purpose driven with the course of our lives we exercise our belief in the fact that we as adults are ultimately are in control and responsible for our situation.
