Search to come to this understanding of yourself and your life -- you are ultimately and solely responsible for what you are and what you shall become. No circumstances, person, or environment is responsible. You and you, alone, decide.
Catch a vision now of what you can be. See the bigger picture. Then take full responsibility for becoming. Let no event or person or earthly responsibility deter you. Let no set back discourage you more than momentarily. Vision is the stepping stone from what is to what can be and you will advance toward your goal, one step at a time.
And remember, keep your eyes upon Jesus. It is the law of influence that we become like those we habitually admire.
I am only one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But I can do something.
What I can do, I ought to do.
What I ought to do
By the grace of God, I will do.
