Living Your Dreams

wall-321499_640

Have you ever had a dream that you wanted to become your reality? Are you currently setting goals to accomplish your dream? There are many who have aspirations and goals that they want to achieve. You can accomplish your God-given talents and gifts beyond all the difficulties and challenges you face.

Doing what you love makes a huge difference rather than doing something that others think you should do or doing it only for what you can get out of it.  Inspiring people like Colonel Sanders, Walt Disney, Mandisa Hundley and many more never allowed their difficulty to stop them from living their dreams.

Thomas Edison quoted “I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.” There will be obstacles and struggles, but we must not give up on the things we are called to by God.

When we pursue God we are tapping into everything we need. He will show us what to do and which way to go. We must be willing to listen to God’s voice for our instructions. He will never lead us astray, but He will bring those things He desires for us to be into place.

Everything won’t happen all at once, things take time before they come to life. Nothing and no one is exempt from time and seasons. They all have an important role to play in everything.

I have dreams that have not come to life right now, but in time I believe they will. I just want to encourage you that whether you have one, a few or many steps to go, keep working towards your dreams and soon they will become your reality.

Summer Story ’15: Create Your Own Enjoyment

alive-720243_640

Life offers golden solitude moments. Moments of discovery and exploration. To be intentional in finding the joyous gifts of the present. This summer for me has been an interesting and a needed learning experience of many things. We have to always be ready for the unplanned and interruptions that flutter near. Below are a few highlights to consider.

 

   Solitude is a gift to be alive in. This is an opportunity to listen, feel, see and taste the lively and lovely splendor.

Silence reveals many wonders. When we stop to be silent and allow the beauty to soak outwardly and inwardly we can experience the amazement and grandeur of simplicity.

Envision and evoke your venture. Where do you want to head to?  What do you want to do? What is meaningful and full of life to you?

Risks are sometimes worth exploring. Not every risk we should take, but not every chance should we ignore. What possible goodness or greatness can come out  of this? What is holding me back from at least trying or finding out more about it?

  How is your summer going? What is your summer story saying? What are you doing this summer?

Building Balance

stones-167089_640

Balance…not too little and not too much. That place where it’s just right. Life gets messy, chaotic and unbalanced. Things get out of control. We want balance and need it very much, but how do we maintain it in every aspect and area of life? What to apply and not to apply? When to say yes and when to say no? When to take action and when to be still? What keeps everything together? What is balance to you? What is balance to me? Is it possible to maintain it every time? Maybe balance is all about surrender. Balance and surrender seem to go together. One area neglected or not properly handled can sometimes cause other things to come to crash or disaster.

Surrendering everything to the Lord will put balance where it needs to be. How do you find balance in a fast paced world? What do you do when you feel out of balance?
