My husband by birth is a dreamer. He is a visionary man all around. He is so full of life and has these amazing in depth dreams that God has placed in his heart. Many a late night talks embark upon some of the dreams he wants to accomplish. He will talk and talk to me about everything in his heart. I believe God has placed dreams into everyones hearts, its just that sometimes life has a way of burying those dreams deep down inside.
I’ve seen people do all sorts of things to the dreams that God has given to them. People bury them so deep inside for fear of criticisms from others. Some just give up, thinking that their dream will never come true. Others have become so busy with life that they put their dreams “on hold” till they think the time is right. Usually the time is never right.
But I want to encourage you to seek those dreams that God has placed upon your heart. Ask him in prayer to give you a clear vision of what he wants from you. Ask him to give you a renewed spirit to help you achieve those dreams.
The apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:11-13
11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.
Paul never allowed himself to be upset and stresssed with where he was at in life, because he was always looking to where he was going instead of where he was at or had been.
Paul is a great example to us, for contentment and ambition. We need to learn to enjoy the ride that God has given to us, and remember to stay on track. God in his own perfect timing will get us to those dreams that He so desires us to live out.
Are you struggling with dreams that don’t seem to come true? I encourage you to ask God to give you that vision and to place it right in the fore front of your mind. I encourage you to seek it out daily, take it one day at a time until you reach that final dream destination.
