The Possible Dream

Many of you may have already seen this little video. I’m not a big fan of “American Idol” so I had never heard of Paul Potts. Boy, was everyone blown away when this was shown at my church last Sunday. It was in support of a series of talks entitled “Who Am I”. Turn your sound way up. This is absolutely wonderful.

    Wow. He’ll have to gain a few lbs to be the next Pavaratti–good thing this was British version and not American Idol. Paula would be in tears–Randy would be saying, “Dog, Dog–
    Du-aw-aw-aw-g-that was amazing. Simon would say the same thing.

    Oh wait–were talking about hidden talent. Okay. The churches we have been in are great at crushing the talents of many–in favor of nepotism and general favoritism that usually surrounds the family of the pastor, the chief deacon or elder, or a few prodigies. And when a person has a talent similar to the pastor or other upper-folks, any attempt to use the gift is met with cries of “Pride! Kohath! Humble Yourself!

    I saw this a couple of months ago. His story and his voice are amazing. You can buy his CD (recorded after winning).

    He has been on Oprah. Need I say more.

    Well, I don’t watch much Oprah either. Like I said, I’m off the curve when it comes to pop culture.

    I think he’s still new news to most Americans. We don’t pay too close of attention to English TV. He recorded You Raise Me Up in Italian on his CD… Pretty Cool.

    His voice is so beautiful. I heard this before, but it still moves me.

    A lesson here is to watch the initial discouraging expressions on the judges faces. Most people would have felt hurt by that.

    But he went on to succeed anyhow. We can learn to disregard the disbelief of others if God has given us a calling, a dream, or a talent. It does not matter what others will say. But when it is our time to shine, our dreams, our talents will speak for themselves.
