In the Wizard of Oz, the main characters follow the Yellow Brick Road in search of what they believe they do not possess – a brain, a heart, courage, and a home. By the end of this classic tale they come to the realization they possessed all along the very things they sought. They were smart, loving, brave, and carried home within their hearts.
There are times when we lament our perceived shortcomings. We set out in search of a wizard who can make our dreams magically materialize. Afraid to take a wrong turn or make a mistake, we pursue perfection or delay our dreams waiting for guarantees.
Be encouraged. For at this very moment we are smart enough, loving enough, bold enough and blessed enough to ease on down the road of our destiny and purpose.
