ONE DREAM of mine, is to travel to Hawaii to Disneyland. Across the sky to enter the land of dreams coming true. I am a person who believes to dream big and I've seen many dreams come true. I also believe in the power of prayer and waiting on God for his timing.
Romans 15:13 NIV 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Writing is a gift God has given me. I see a dream come true as I type on a laptop. Words just seem to pour into my brain and I write. I thank God for the gifts he has given me. I don't claim to know it all, but I have been through enough to share that God is faithful in life. His word comes alive to me and I write about it. Throughout the Bible are words of hope, love and faith. Stories told of lives that had dreams and they came true.
Genesis Chapter 42 ~ THE DREAMS COME TRUE
Read this chapter when you have time in the Bible.
I often think of David (The Shepherd Boy) you can read about in 1 Samuel Chapter 16. Who knew the dream within his heart but God. God called him out from among the sheep to become a leader of people. He set his feet on a path to conquer the giant and so much more. Just one story of David's willingness to serve was amazing. One yes to God opens doors of dreams and visions for each of us.
What is your dream today? Don't give up on it because God is a promise keeper. He doesn't want us to stop pressing forwarding or stop dreaming big. God gives the desires of our heart and that's a promise from it word (Bible).
I have found over my life time, that my dreams come true. As a kid, I wanted to have friends and teach people to be kind. As an adult I still want those things and I'm doing that. I prayed for real friendships and major connected to teach God's word. I have co-taught a class for Women at Hillside Christian Church for over 10 years now. I've seen a lot of dreams broken for women, but also dreams that have come true. Our faith in God is a must and even hard things can turn for good. Women have also taught me so much over the years. We simply learn from one another and need connections.
I never thought I would be teaching women to rise up to be the woman God has called you too. I love teaching kids, but God saw a bigger plan for me. I also teach men through this blog to become the man of God you are called to be. Each of us have a past, a present and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 teaches us that. Plus, we are called to become better people and not bitter people. Each of us are designed different for a reason. God has called you to be you and to live his word through your life!
YOU ARE CALLED TO BE YOU, THROUGH GOD'S GRACE and MERCY!
I have friends who can sing beautifully, but they don't pursue their calling. They have spent most of their lives thinking they are not good enough. Clearly God has called me to sing. I can personalize this to I know I can write this blog and I'm confident at that. I have a dream to write a book and I tend to pull back from it. I don't know why I do that. I am not different than the one who can sing, the gift is there, but God help us to view ourselves the way you do. Help us to step into our calling and do it. I don't want my life to end and have a wish I had said at my life celebration. I wish I had written that book! I'm stopping that thinking right now and I will write that book! Making a declaration that I will do this.
I am human and still have dreams. A dream is only a dream unless you press forward to do your part. I praying that you will do your part and your dream/dreams will come true. I'm praying for you right now and your family/friends. God is greater than any lack of confident or struggle your might face. Call up the brave one and do it. Claim that victory in the name of Jesus and sing or write that book or be a teacher or whatever you are called too. The devil is a liar and has no part in your mind. You can do whatever you put your mind too! You are a child of God who is growing daily into purpose.
Isaiah 40:28-31 NIV 28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Thank you for taking your time to read this, plant hope and go for it!
