Nothing is impossible for us because all things are possible for the God who lives in us.

She opens her door and invites me in with a smile followed by a warm hug. We sit down at the kitchen table, and she places a brightly colored plate in front of me. I study the pretty design around the edges. My college mentor, Beth, doesn’t believe in matching sets. Every dish she owns is wonderfully unique, and I’m always intrigued to discover what I’ll eat off each week. She has a knack for noticing the one-of-a-kind beauty in people too.

Beth asks how I’m doing, and I share about my endlessly busy schedule. After listening intently, Beth leans back and says words that will stay with me for decades to come: “Holley, the hardest choices in life aren’t between bad and good. They’re between good and best.”

Becoming a thriving adult requires discovering we have limits and then figuring out a filter that helps us choose what truly matters most. In today’s world, there will always be plenty of choices. But not everything we can do is something we should do. Even if someone else really, really wants us to do it.

It’s time to go beyond “good” and embrace the very best God has for you.
