Lifted by Love

In 1982, Rick Crain, weighing 165 pounds and after years of serious training set a world record of lifting 716 pounds. The lift took about 7 seconds. On April 14 of that same year Angela Cavallo in her fifties, with no training whatsoever, lifted approximately 1800 pounds and held it for a least five minutes.
As reported by Associated Press, Angela’s son Tony was working on his 1964 Chevy Impala when the jack slipped and pinned him under the car causing an immediate black out. Realizing that her son would die if something wasn’t done immediately, Angela grabbed hold of the car and lifted it four inches off her son while yelling at a neighbor’s child to get help. After five minutes two neighbors reinserted the jack and dragged Tony out. How did she do it? You see, Angela had a tremendous amount of love and a strong desire and that combination makes anything possible.
If there is something in your life that you want but it just isn’t happening you have to ask yourself “Do I have Angela’s level of love and desire?”. Don’t sit there and tell yourself that something is impossible. Don’t give up on your dream. Don’t think that the odds are against you. Fire up your enthusiasm. Fill yourself to overflowing with love and there will be no room for doubt. Remind yourself that God gave you the desire, the love and the ability to believe and all you have to do is put them together and energize them with your heart. Go ahead, you can do it!
