Your Dream Alive
CBN Staff Writer
Do you have a dream -- something that you've always seen yourself doing? Perhaps
you see yourself as a pastor, business owner, or even a news anchor. Whatever
dream God has given you, don't let it die.
A dream is a wonderful thing.
It can give you hope for your future and encourage you to try when all odds are
against you. But beware, there are dream killers that want to snuff the life out
of your dream. Don't let them do it!
People who can't or don't want to
see your dream fulfilled can kill your dream. They may tell you that it is impossible
for you, that you are not smart enough or that it's never been done before. However,
many times the biggest dream killer is you.
Don't let fear, intimidation,
doubt, lack of finances, etc., dictate to you that you can't fulfill your dream.
Talk back to these killers. Tell them, "I can and will fulfill my destiny, my
dream." You may have to do this everyday, but that's ok. The more you instill
within your heart that you can do it, your dream will be held safe within you.
It is very important to take steps towards fulfilling your dream. For me,
in order to fulfill my dream of one-day owning my own magazine, I needed to go
back to school and finish my college degree. For you, it may be something different.
You know deep inside what the voice of your dream calls for. Don't be afraid,
just do it. Try not to let too much time go by. Time is another one of those dream
Meditate on the words of a song by Yolanda Adams, "Keep the dream
alive, don't let it die, it's something deep inside, keeps inspiring me to try,
don't stop and never give up, don't ever give up on you. Sometimes, life can place
a stumbling block in your way, but you've got to keep the faith"
you dream, dream BIG, and never give up. There's no law that says you have to
dream small. Your dream is just that, yours. Never let anyone tell you that your
dream can't happen, it can! Nurture your dream. Keep seeing yourself do what's
never been done before. As you continue to feed your dream and protect it, not
only will you keep it alive, but it has no other choice but to come forth!
3:20 sums it up this way:
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably
more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within
us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,
for ever and ever! Amen.
