There are many opportunities in life to cop-out or quit. My encouragement for you today or any day is: Now is not the time to quit, now is the time to contemplate the dream God has placed on your heart and dream again!
“Why not quit?” the circumstances, the naysayers and internal critic cry out in questioning. It could be easier, safer, preprogrammed and planned to just go through the motions. To live average, no one would really notice, right? WRONG! Now is not the time to play it safe, Why? You are probably closer than you think, so dream again.
I’ll ask again; Why would you want to quit? Look at the peace and joy available to you when you are caught up in His will for your life. You are probably closer than you think so dream again.
Oh it gets hard, I get it. Life is hard and can be brutal at times. Circumstances fly out of nowhere, slap you in the face and seem to catch you off guard. Your footing is shaken, you lose your balance. We all do. We all experience seasons of being overwhelmed. I am here to remind you of this: you are probably closer than you think; dream again.
God has an agenda for your life according to Jeremiah 29:11 and of course the enemy of your soul has an agenda to destroy your faith in God. Each day you show up, each day you recommit, each day you see the little steps, the victories. Rehearse those because you, yes you, beloved are probably closer than you think so dream again.
You see, you were never supposed to shoulder the burden alone! Nope, not even for one moment. How can I be so sure? Faith. Without it, it is impossible to please God. But with it, even the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains. YES YOU! It’s in you, this love that is shed abroad in your heart, because you are probably closer than you think, you can walk in faith and dream again.
You are so close to Him, sometimes you forget, sometimes you want to control, because you are sometimes moved by the wind of life. Stay anchored, stay still, stay long enough to know that He is God and you are closer than you think, dream again.
There is more, even more than you thought. Right here in this moment, because you were uniquely made for this moment. With all of the gifts and talents that you were given that come so easy to you. Remember those! In this moment right here right now, you are closer than you think; dream again.
The truth is you didn’t just dream that dream for no reason. You don’t have those witty ideas to just sit still on. You have a stirring inside that is alive, waiting for you to show up! You were made for greatness. It’s in you, He’s in you so you can dream again.
That dream! That God-given dream; Your dream, what you are here on earth to walk out is your vision and purpose. Write it, see it before you, see it again and again. Let your footsteps be ordered, let you heart be full of faith. Replace your fear with faith because you are closer than you think, so dream again.
Do you see it, can you taste it. It’s not too late, as long as you have today you have time. Don’t believe the lie, it’s too late. Stay in faith, God is moved by your faith in Him. Surrender. You are closer than you think it’s time to dream again! Please dream again!
