We will all face challenges and obstacles. We all have dreams and goals that we may not reach. What I have learned is that many times in life, we are most disappointed with what doesn't work out. During these difficult times, we all have a choice. We can be negative, discouraged and talk ourselves out of the next dream or goal that is waiting for us, or we can start praising and thanking God for the new doors that He will open for us.
When you give God praise first, before anything happens, then the breakthroughs will come. You’ve got to change the way you look at things, and then the things you look at will begin to change in your favor.
Here are some important questions to think about:
Do you respond with anger, or try to control things you can't control?
Or are you flexible, confident, and understand that God works all things together for your good?
Mistakes happen in all areas of life, including relationships. You must understand that mistakes don't define you. God does! The first step is to own the mistake, then ask for forgiveness, and then correct it as you grow and learn from it so that it doesn't happen again.
This is a process that allows you to be bold, daring and free again. It's important to allow yourself the opportunity to explore, dream and to enlarge your view of yourself again. Have fun with the lost art of daydreaming and start imagining what your life might be like if_______________(you fill in the blank!)
Remember. God gave you those dreams and visions. He is a dream giver!
1. Give yourself permission to dream again.
2. Find time to dream (this is very important).
3. Enjoy the life you have today, but don't be afraid to dream BIG for the future (at any age).
4. Thank God ahead of time for the dreams and visions he will bring to pass in your life this year.
Today, as you ask yourself these important questions, begin to declare that God is good and He IS faithful. Believe that when one dream dies, that he has another dream and another victory for every area of your life! Start believing and start dreaming!
If you will do that, I believe and declare you will be all that you were created to be!
