Dreaming is the most intriguing, stimulating, yet intimidating thing you could possibly allow yourself to do. I love this quote that I saw on Instagram “It will cost you nothing to dream and everything not to”. God has placed a dream in each and every one of us. But it is up to you to follow that dream and produce what God has placed in you. Just like a seed that has been planted in a garden. You must water your dreams, plow your dreams then watch the harvest of your dreams.
At the beginning you may not understand or even feel like this is something that you could ever do. But as you seek God and gain His understanding, your passion and dreams will continue to grow. I know when God first gave me the dream of this ministry. I was like no … I can’t do that, this is not for me. I’m the behind the scene girl, the helper. But God said no! I did not create you to sit on the side lines or to hide in the back. I created you to fulfill the calling that I placed on your life. After I began to slowly accept God’s plan for my life, I began to realize how strong my passion for young women and all the things that He had called me to do. My dreams were becoming my reality. And the greatest part is that it all aligned with the purpose that God had for my life. Through this whole process I began to heal from things that have hurt me or hindered me in my past. And I have learned things about myself that I never knew where there. My confidence changed. My speech changed. And I am living better than I ever have. But I had to make a choice to water that seed that God placed in me. Plow that seed and now watch the harvest of that seed. It wasn’t an easy thing to do, because I wasn’t sure if people would understand or support my dreams. I wasn’t sure if I was the right fit. Did I really have a ministry inside of me? I never received that prophecy. No one ever told me this is what I was supposed to do. My father always said that I have a healing anointing but I thought he meant laying hands on the sick. Through this I learned that there are many different ways for you to be used by God to help heal others. Still…. was I just copying what I saw someone else do? Do I feel like this was just my time to shine? Do I even have the time to do this? I’m a single mom with a full time job. Can I even handle this? Will anyone support me? Is this really God? And why me why now. I still have my own struggles. All these things where going on in my mind all at the same time. But I had to trust God and the fact that I believed this dream of mine was real and that this is His will for my life. And that though His plan and my dreams were bigger than me, just like everyone else I too deserved to dream. In Jeremiah 29:11 it’s says that, “God know the plans for your life. A plan to give you hope for the future”. It may not seem like there is anyone who supports you, or even understand your dream. But God placed it in your heart for a reason. So no matter how hard it may be in the beginning or as many times you may have to fall and get back up. It doesn’t matter how many people say that it will never happen. It will flourish because God never fails. Joyce Meyers once said that “if you are waiting on the support of man that day may never come for you. So you must plow your own way to the top. Because you will never know the power you have until you step out.” You will never know your full potential if you allow others to predict your future and create your ending. What God has placed in you let no-one neither take away nor alter. Guard your dreams as your heart. Create an ending that will leave a Godly impact on this world. Produce that dream and dream BIG. I want to end with this quote, “She’s a Dreamer, a Doer, a Thinker, she sees possibility EVERYWHERE”.
