Seeing Possibilities

Devotional Scripture : Habakkuk 2:3 (King James Version)
For the vision is yet for an appointed time... It will surely come, it will not tarry.

Robert Chesebrough had a product in which he believed wholeheartedly. In fact, it was his own invention. Chesebrough had transformed the ooze that forms on shafts of oil rigs--rod wax--into a petroleum jelly that he personally found to have great healing properties. He believed so much in the healing aspects of his creation that he became his own "experimental subject." To demonstrate the benefits of his product for others, Chesebrough burned himself with acid and flame, and cut and scratched himself so often and so deeply that he bore scars of his tests for his entire life.

Nevertheless, Chesebrough proved his point and people were convinced. They only had to look at Chesebrough's wounds and how they healed to see the value of his product, which still is an international bestseller. We know it as Vaseline.

What do you see as a possibility today? Do you believe enough in its potential to help others that you are willing to invest your time, energy, resources, and hope into developing it?

The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious.
