As a person who works with students, I spend a LOT of my time looking for potential in people. I ask questions like, “What is this student gifted at?”, “What has God made inside them that they haven’t found yet?”, “How do help students discover the gifts God has/is put in them?” And I ask these questions knowing that I will often not see the answers come while the students are in junior and senior high.
I work on potential. What could be.
But in some parts of my life, potential turns into reality. Beautiful. The waiting ends and I see the goodness and love of God poured out. Potential can turn into reality like this:
God is good!
“Give me Christ or else I die!”
