“The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.” (Science and Health, page 199)
Anything is possible. Your aspirations can become reality. Your vision for life is not a pipe dream. The task that looms large before you can be accomplished.
And this achievement doesn’t require superhuman effort or some miraculous act of the divine. What it does require is simply the devotion of thought to it. Any idea that has the rightness of God behind it, that is founded on goodness or even on the kindness of necessity, can be accomplished. What we need is our honest and earnest dedication to the idea, our faithfulness to what we have been led to achieve.
This thought-focus is not always about immediate or urgent action, and it isn’t about fixation or worry. What it is about is continuing to believe. It is reminding ourselves that good intentions come of God, and with Him as the Source, we can expect completeness and success as we go forward with Him. This consecration of thought is not obsession. It is simply a recognition that with God behind us, we cannot fail. It is that nurturing within consciousness of what we have been guided to do, and continuing to listen for the right next step.
Anything is possible. There is no impossible to God.
