THE ROCK PILE
“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, (1900-1944) The Little Prince
Dreamers, creators, artists, writers, thinkers, tinkers, planners, schemers, visionaries, seers, idealists, designers, inventers, musicians, poets, philosophers, builders and engineers with all of their imagination, ideas, and concepts, are seeing what will be and not necessarily what is at the moment. They see cathedrals…not just rock piles.
They have Rock Pile faith… that translates into Rock Pile work…and this produces Rock Pile reality. Out of this comes How to build a Summer Cabin, a House Boat, a Bass Boat, a classic car, a small business, a private school, a new church, a dedicated ministry, a mother cow and calf operation, a stay at home mom, a landscaped yard, a new chiseled body, a fought for degree, or a cathedral… and dozens of other things. It all happens as soon as we stop seeing only the rock pile and start seeing the cathedral. God has no boundaries between the possible and the impossible.
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Jesus
