Why are our dreams worth pursuing? Why are they worth the effort and time and frustrations? Because, we are the only one with our personal experiences, our own point of view. It's our side of the story.
We don't have to tell it.
We could decide not to.
We can choose to believe that other's opinions are more important than the story God wants us to live out and tell.
If there's one thing I've realized this Easter season and through watching The Bible, it's that fear of man is a trap and always leads to death.
Fear of God, will lead to freedom.
It's always a choice.
I don't always choose wisely. More times than I like to admit I stay quiet out of fear of rejection, fear of another person's opinion.
When I decided to give someone that much power over me, I don't know.
But I do know, that small steps, small day to day choices, lead to big things in the end. I'm a big results right now kinda girl (probably why diets fail me) And this whole concept of taking it one change, one day at a time is an intentional, decisive decision for me.
"Just when feel like you're done, just when you think you can't go on, that's when the door opens and unexpectedly you are there." God Sized Dream, pg81
There have been many times I've wondered, "what am I doing? and why?" "What is the point of writing and blogging? Where is it leading? Is it going anywhere?"
And then I think, " OK I'm done, I can't see it, so I'm done."And that's the moment that someone will leave a comment or send me a message about how much something I wrote meant to them. And that's a God moment for me.
Those are the times that I know God heard my heart and answered. I may not understand or see where this is going, but He does.
And for some reason He wants to use me for His purposes...and that is so humbling, my friends.
Oh, to be able to see myself the way He sees me, if only for a moment. I think I would never be the same again.
What I want may not come into being or may look completely different than I have envisioned.
It's a daily laying down of who I am, and letting God work in and through me. And being OK with the outcome whatever it may be.
My dreams are worth it, and so are your's
Let's fight for more in this life and not settle for mediocrity any longer.
Whose with me?

Galatians 1:10 "Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ."
