I came across a website today that featured motivational posters of quotes from Star Trek’s Mr. Spock. They were indeed motivational and some were downright inspiring. This is one of the most inspiring:
History is replete with turning points. You must have faith that the universe will unfold as it should.
All of us have a history of turning points throughout life. Often we wonder about each one, concerned that it was a wrong turn for us. Yet, life went on and we survived the change. Fearing turning points is damaging to one’s spirit. We cannot avoid them, and most of the time, we cannot change their course.
That’s where faith becomes so important, faith that our universe will unfold as it should. The Bible has a great deal to say about faith. One of my favorites is found in the Gospel of Matthew.
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Matthew 17:20. New International Version
I pray for that kind of faith . . . strong, persevering, confident. That kind of faith will get me through every turning point in life, and for that I am truly grateful.
“Nothing will be impossible for you.”
