Many of us have started things and through our dear friends, been told “that will never work”.

Of course when we got started and become a success, they said “I knew you could do it, I just didn’t think it was possible.”

May I share a story with you today?  A young English boys was chastised by other boys for being small for his age and red headed.  He was constantly called “Carrot Top” and was given little chance for success.

He was third lowest in his class.  He failed Math and Latin

His teacher’s report read “The boy is certainly no scholar and has repeated his grade twice.  He has also a stubborn streak and is sometimes rebellious in nature.  He seems to have little or no understanding of his school work, except in a most mechanical way.  At times, he seems almost perverse in his ability to learn.  He has not made the most of his


The little boy would soon settle down to serious study.  He became the leader of one of the greatest nation’s in our world.  His name was Winston Churchill!

Now, what do you want to accomplish with Christ?  Philippians 4:13Philippians 4:13
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

says “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

As people laugh at your today, remember Churchill and the ridicule he endured.  Christ also endured ridicule and became the Savior of the whole universe!

We can all accomplish something if only we will turn it over to God and let Him work out the time and the details!

Have a blessed day!

Mark A Jones, Evangelist
