Matthew 7:7-8 New International Version
Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
PRESSING FORWARD ~
Holding onto your dreams is important
Each of us have a story!
My story is one that continues too. I had dreams growing up and I heard of Jesus. I remember calling upon his name when I felt alone and didn't understand so much. I really did not know who Jesus was at a kid, but I heard he loves me. That seemed to be enough for me as a kid. Then I grew up and realize how much life can change over time. I lost sight of Jesus and guidance to him. I grew up in the days of not much TV, no computers, no iPhones or internet. So it was books or guidance from others that affected my life. I listen closely to teachers and wanted more.
God says to ASK ~ SEEK ~ KNOCK!
I'm asking today that you continue to believe big and press forward. Nothing is too big for God and his timing is everything. Suddenly things change and we know that pressing forward might be all we have to do. Stand firm on the word of God and know that his plan unfolds. Live Jeremiah 29:11 ~ a plan, a promise and a future. Seasons come and go for each of us.
Think about it ~
If you give up on your dreams, then you will never see the answer. God in all his goodness, allows us to have free will and that changes thing. Keeping your mind stayed on God is his plan. Search your heart today and put your dream into motion. I will never forget that one friend said this, "I don't have a dream. I really don't understand what you are saying about dreaming big". I began to explain about having a dream of something better or greater in life. The things you dream about and often wonder if it will come to pass.
My personal story continues to amaze me. There was a time in life when I didn't dream big or could even see answers in my life. I had people who prayed for me and held on for me. Then God turned my mind to his plan and I surrender my thoughts. I know that prayer works and it begins inside of me and you. Prayer changes the outlook at things too.
As you continue to read, please know that my prayers continue for you, your family and friends. We are connected for a reason and much larger purpose than we might now. Go God! Some of us are in seasons of reaping and others in seasons of sowing. We have different thoughts and it's hard when you see someone else dream come to pass, while you are waiting on you. The key is to wait, because our paths are different. I can't see your full life story and you can't see mine, but God can. Don't loose sight of your dream or pressing toward it.
I remember praying for things in life. I would get them and then a few years later, I wanted different things. The human mind see's things and the wants comes into play. I want a big house someday, while I prayed for the Mobile Home I live in now. See what I mean, the dream of wanting more and still living in today matters. It's doesn't make me greedy, just human.
I don't know what's God total plan is, but I know that he hears my heart, knows my thoughts and answers my prayers. My mind is constant in loving him and wanting to do my best daily in actions/words. I can see how he has opens doors for teaching, writing my blog and leading others. I'm not perfect, but I press forward in truth on a daily bases. I am a living witness that dreams do come true, while waiting on others to happen. After all, we don't know somethings unless we ask, seek and knock.
Philippians 3:14 King James Version
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
It's a new day and let us count some blessings, while holding onto our dreams!
