44: True Greatness

This morning on a whim I opened my copy of A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and other Servants which I received during my time at Hillcrest.  I turned the pages to this weeks section and found this under this week’s “Readings for Reflection”
“And you, too, youthful reader, will realize the Vision (not the idle wish) of your heart, be it base or beautiful, or a mixture of both, for you will always gravitate toward that which you, secretly, must love.  Into your hands will be placed the exact results of your own thoughts; you will receive that which you earn; no more, no less.  Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal.  You will become as small as your controling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration…”  – From As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
There’s two more little paragraphs but that’s the part that hit me this morning.  I’m starting my first semester of Seminary on campus this morning and I’m nervous.  However I have a creator that tends to know exactly what I need, even if it’s a short passage while I straighten my hair.  I think I’ll be alright here.  I may even like it.
