“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

Ouch! Talk about some serious weight.

This question exposes the deep desires of our soul that may be due for some fresh air. If you are leading a family, a ministry or just yourself, this is a great question to address.

Think about it for just a second…you don’t have to share it out loud…what would your answer be in relation to the organization you serve? What would YOU attempt on behalf of your ministry if you knew you couldn’t fail?

Got it yet? If not, then think about it a second longer…it will be worth the thought. What would you attempt to do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

Whatever you came up with is worth examining. It may be telling the story of your unique passions that have finally been allowed to breathe. Or, maybe you’ve already been asking this question and it explains exactly why you are where you are today.

In part two of this post, I’ll share what one ministry leader decided to do in answer to this question. Her ministry will never be the same. Stay tuned.
