Do you have any dreams or plans you once pursued but now keep safely tucked away?
Most often I get excited about the possibilities but then I start to consider my reality: all of my everyday distractions, detours and past failures…. and many times I just want to give up.
Most of our dreams are like building plans that undergo undergo several revisions: our promises gets stuck and we start to believe the lie thats says there is something wrong with it or it just won’t work, it’s not important, or we are incapable … but that is exactly the time to keep pushing forward. Sometimes that frustration is just the friction we need to look from our past inconveniences to the new direction God is inspiring.
• Let yourself dream. What would you do if everything was an option? Grab a notebook and write everything down that comes to mind. Choose to eliminate negative thoughts, actions or words that might be holding you back and revisit a promise that may have fallen to the wayside.
• Pray about your dream. Is it God-inspired or motivated solely by you and your plans? Let God alter your dreams so He can give you His.
• Dig deeper into the presence of God. Study His word, declare it and make it yours, so you can respond when He says ‘GO.
• Be Intentional: What steps do you need to take to accomplish that thing that fires you up? Formulate a plan and stick to it.
God is able and will always provide the provision for what He has called us to, but we must practically prepare for it! Is there a dream or plan that you have laid aside but are encouraged and inspired to go after once again? Tell us about it!
