William Howard wrote, “The future belongs to the man who sets his sights on what is humanly unattainable.”
There are several dreams I once found unattainable in my life:
- Saving my marriage
- Life after pastoring
- 2,302 consecutive days of sexual sobriety (as of today)
Here’s the good news: we serve a God who turns the unattainable into the attainable, the impossible to possible.
We must adopt the mindset of Paul, who said, “This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before …” (Philippians 3:13).
Recovery Step: What has your addiction robbed you of? What dreams have eroded? What goals have been forgotten? What aspirations have been silenced? Put it all on the table before God. Then ask him to do for you what you could not do for yourself. Throw yourself on the mercy of the attainable God.
