Dear Olivia

Dear Olivia,

I know it's hard. You're not sure if this is really the path God is calling you to. Why does it have to be so hard? And plans so fuzzy?

Well, sweet Olivia, God knows the plans He has for you and if you don't give up you will get to see those plans come to fruition. Won't that be exciting? To see how all of your hard work, sweat and tears has paid off.

I know how it is to second guess yourself and think you are walking clearly in the steps God has called you to, just to feel like everything is falling apart. And think maybe you were wrong after all.

These trials, my friend are going to make the victory that much sweeter. With every victory know I am cheering right along side you. With every set back I am praying you forward.

Those plans that God created for you before you were born, He's working it out now, I hope you see. Keep being faithful and putting one step in front of the other.

Don't stop moving and waiting on the Lord. He will throw open big doors and take down big obstacles when the time is right.


"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage" Anais Nin



Sincerely-Your Dreaming Friend,



*This week we are writing letters to a fellow dream friend, and since Olivia has been my prayer partner this entire time, I thought it suiting to write to her. She is a budding photographer whom takes beautiful pictures, and has an even more beautiful heart.
