We have to at least, continue to dream

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Do you know it’s ok to start visualizing the visions and dreams God has for us? Do you know that some people stop thinking on what they want to be and do, because they think it's too big for them? I know, because I used to think the same way. Yes I was scared to move and I let the people around me, talk me out of my dreams. I finally realized that they were scared too. Can you believe that? The blind leading the blind. 

And this is the even sadder part: when I would start talking about my dreams, I let people talk me out of achieving things that weren't even that big. They were just different -- different than what was ever done before. So, I took the bait; I let scared people reel me right into their limited thinking. And I achieved nothing regarding my dreams. I didn't know any better. I wasn't as confident as I am now, so I associated with the wrong people. Not bad people, mind you, just scared people. We were going nowhere together. That was a different girl back then. Today I'm no longer afraid of dreams that are bigger than life. It doesn't matter how big and impossible they seem, I'm not backing down anymore. 

I just want to encourage you that no matter how big your dream is, you have to at least, continue to dream. Without a dream in our heart, what else do we have that will satisfy us to do whatever it is we do? We have to live out what keeps tugging at our heart, because that's God guiding us. Psalm 31:3 says, "for you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me."
