I’ve been thinking so much today about dreaming, and how important it is to our vitality.
I believe God has placed dreams in each of our hearts, things He has created us to do, to be in our lifetime.
I found myself in tears tonight, telling a few friends close to me about one of my biggest dreams, something I would love to accomplish as a way to help others, if it’s the last thing I do before I die. It moved me that deeply.
It reminded me how important it is not to waste our time, because life is too short and there is much to accomplish!
Some of the biggest time wasters I can think of off the top of my head: Wanting to do something that others see as relevant and important, being too afraid to take the steps, feeling like it’s too hard to get from here to there, believing you don’t have what it takes to get the job done. Wow, so many excuses why we shouldn’t pursue the dreams in our hearts, but I don’t think we will find true passion and fulfillment in our lives unless we do what we’ve been called to do.
I encourage each of you, as well as myself, to not let anything or anyone hold you back! Pay attention to what stirs up passion in your heart and ask God to show you what he has created you for, and then begin to take steps in that direction!
You will never regret dreaming but you will regret letting dreams and passions go to waste. Making our dreams come to pass requires a lot of hard work but with the passion and the power of God in our lives to help carry us through—it is truly possible!!
Let’s each determine to begin to be diligent, intential and aware of what is in our heart and follow our God-given dreams!
