“THE POWER OF AN INCH.”
Dr. Martin Luther King said,
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
On January 19th, 2015 a farm accident would bring me within one inch of loosing my life. Because of that accident I have experienced pain that I did not know existed, that now I don’t even remember. After a year, I have aches on an almost daily basis that remind me of how great life really is. I have experienced the love of people that I did not know was possible. I have felt, like I have never felt.
I will be the first to admit that I have fallen and failed more times than I can recount. All to often, I have also not “stood” well during times of challenge and controversy. The fact of the matter is I cannot do anything about any of those past moments. The one thing I can do is live for the inch that I have been given. Every day that the sun comes up for each of us, we have been given a new inch to live. So, live it! There is great Power in an Inch.
