Doer of Your Dreams!

Be A Doer of Your Dreams

 

Have you struggled to become a doer of your dream and achieve your dream life?  Has it seemed as though your accomplishments when it came to fulfilling your dreams were meager?  Believe me when I say to you “I totally understand and can sympathize.” It seems I’ve spent most of my adult life wondering when this dream or that dream was going to finally come to pass. I would begin to work toward the goals of fulfilling my dreams but then it seemed as though I would hit a wall, so I would either quit or just give up altogether.  But then I would wonder when was it going to be my turn to see my desires fulfilled?  Have you ever asked yourself the same question and immediately felt a nudge of guilt as if you were being selfish? That feeling or little nudge of guilt was the one thing that seemed to hinder me the most.  What was that nudge?  Why would I give into it?

Well, for me personally, I now know that the accusing little nudge of guilt was the enemy of my Soul (my mind, will, emotions, and intellect) talking me right out of my dreams!  My Heavenly Father through His Word tells us that He has given us the Kingdom of God and that it gives Him great pleasure to give it to His children!  He is not withholding it from us.  So, why do we feel selfish desiring or even partaking in what was freely given to us by the redemptive work of Jesus on the cross?  The answer is that we have a real foe, a real enemy who does not want us to fulfill our life’s goals and dreams. He is a liar and whispers in our ears all of the reasons why we can’t see our dreams fulfilled.  He surely doesn’t want us to live out our purpose because our purpose gives glory to the One and only True God which is not him!

In the following Scripture, the Word of God tells us that we are going to have opposition.  He even tells us who we are up against. However, He also gives us encouragement that He again wants us to fulfill all of our life’s dreams and purposes in Him!  He also says that in doing so, there is a reward of Abundant Life!

John 10:10 (KJV) 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.

Okay, so you may be asking, how can I partake of this abundant life?  Well, the first thing you need to do is believe truth and not a lie!  John 14:6 (KJV) 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  So, the next time the enemy of your soul comes to whisper his lies, simply tell him. “Shut up with the lies! I will no longer believe your lies or be talked out of my dreams.   I know the One who is Truth and I believe His promises concerning my Life!  I will have all my God-given dreams fulfilled in Jesus’ name!   Do you know what will happen next? James 4:7 (KJV) 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Happy dreaming my friend, but more than just a dreamer, you will become a doer of your Dreams!

Disappointments Will Come, Then What?

11 Dec

Disappointment Will Come, Then What?    

Have you ever put all of your time and effort into something important and it not work out the way that you expected it to? What did you do?  Did you quit, or did you square your shoulders and begin again?

I am not a quitter!  I am as stubborn as a mule and most times if something doesn’t work out, I just dig in and determine that I will get it done one way or the other! Unfortunately sometimes I am too stubborn to try new or different ways of doing things.  If I keep doing the same things, I am going to keep getting the same results!  Trust me; I’ve tested that theory enough times to know that it is true.  So I guess that is the reason that I like to “step out of the boat”, and at least try to walk on the water rather than staying in my comfort zone regretting that I didn’t even try!  If I could accomplish things by just wanting them to happen the way that I want them to, than success would have been mine long ago!  However, I have found that things always happen for a reason, yes, even things that feel like failure!   I believe the key is always being willing to learn from the experience!  Maybe if I look at the situation differently that I can see something that I could have done differently as well!

Here is something that most people do not want to hear, and honestly I don’t like to hear it either, but…. Maybe, just maybe….. the timing was completely off.  As I’ve stated I am stubborn and I consider myself proactive in my own life. I try to get things done, but I have missed God so many times because I moved way ahead of His timing or even worse I didn’t move when I was supposed to.   As you’ve probably concluded, I am not a passive personality that just waits for “whatever will be will be!”  Nope, it is my opinion that God has planned my future, but He is not going to drop everything in my lap without my participation! For instance, what if I am supposed to meet someone who could really help me to get to another level but I refuse to meet with them?   Or maybe, just maybe I am supposed to help them get what they are trying to obtain, but I refuse to move or I keep moving, when I am to remain still.  I’ve heard it said that “No man is an Island!”   We are on this planet to help one another fulfill destiny!  You may be saying, “Listen Lady I do good to mind my own business without trying to take care of the business of others!”

I Corinthians 3: 6 (KJV) I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

I have had to realize that what I am and even what I do is because I’m a laborer together with God!   I am a firm believer that if I do what I know to do, even when I am out of God’s timing that He will still use it and help me gain the courage to pick myself up when I feel like I have failed miserably!  I personally think that the Father loves it when I am trying my best to fulfill my destiny!  Like a good Daddy, when I fall, he is always there to pick me up! If I will ask Him, He will show me His wisdom to help me be successful the next time.  Yes, disappointments will come, then what? Do I stay there and wallow in discouragement and self-pity! Nope, I can get back up! I have a race to run and a finish line to cross!  It is my prayer that as I race through my life that I will encourage others to continue running until they see their finish line as well!
