When a hectic life, a busy family, a career, eat up our time and occupy all of our thoughts, it's easy for those dreams to get pushed down and sometimes even forgotten. I would challenge you to search your heart and write down those things that you long to see come to pass. Maybe now isn't the time in your life for those dreams to come to fruition, but it's always time to keep them alive. It's always time to take little steps towards reaching those goals.
|What dream God has written on your heart?|
|Do you know how to write a business plan?|
One area that I have struggled with in the past, is a negative attitude towards my ability to see my passions come to pass. Even when co-workers, friends, family and sometimes, strangers would tell me that I would be a great success, I would beat myself up. I would think, "No, I just don't have what it takes; I'm not creative enough; my ideas are not that good. Somebody else is already doing it better." So, instead of thanking God everyday that He put a dream in my heart and praising Him because He was going to help me move forward, I
shut myself down, squashing the dreams of my life.
One day, I woke up and realized that if God put a hope and a dream on the inside of me, then He would provide a way to walk it out with me. He wants us to take the initiative, to do the work and He can make divine connections and wonderful appointments that we would have never thought possible. So don't think your dreams are trivial or too big or out of reach! Take one step at a time, always go back to Him, the giver of the dream, and take small slow steps!
