Thought for the Day 10/30/2015

A man won a prize at the county fair for a full-grown
pumpkin shaped like a small jar!
  How did he accomplish this?
When the pumpkin started to bloom he simply put the
  bloom into a glass jar and the pumpkin, as it grew,
    filled up the jar.  He then broke the jar,
      and the pumpkin duplicated the size and shape of the jar.

Many times we do the same to ourselves.
   We place our selves in containers that limit our growth.
 The container will be just as large or small as
we believe it to be. It is a matter of choice. 
     We can choose to grow or
         we can choose to become ripe and rot. 
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
       they shall run and not be weary;
           they shall walk and not faint.
-Isaiah 40:31
