You can only ignore it for so long. That dream God puts in your heart. We put it off and tell ourselves, ‘One Day.’ We are good at ignoring what we want to do, versus what we need to do. This week in my world, I had to stop ignoring.
Recently, I did a post that made reference to doing what you love. We go through seasons and I went through a long season of survival. I was in survival mode for years. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. All it came down to was working jobs I didn’t enjoy, to make money to keep what I had. I couldn’t let go of what I had worked so hard for. It was a vicious cycle of work, eat and sometimes sleep. God has better in store if I would let go of what I had.
I am free. It was a gradual procession and not as painful as I believed it would be. To mentally let go of the house, cars, in ground pool, artwork, chandeliers, all these things I thought I had to have. There was so much stuff to take care of, I didn’t have time to care for me or my family.
You should know by now, I live a simple, yet beautiful life today. The old saying, ‘less is more’ holds true. I am free to do whatever I want, whenever God opens the door. Being willing to walk through every door and see if it’s something that aligns with my dream. Willingness is key.
Being willing to move when God says move. That is what clicked this this week. I’m a thinker and have been known to analyze every situation. Pick it apart so to speak. That is wanting to know the outcome first. Stepping into the unknown is a scary feeling and fear will set in to stop you. Face your fear. What scares you? Face it and get moving.
The great thing about dreams are they don’t go away. We leave our dreams, they don’t leave us. They will patiently wait on the sidelines until will take time for them. We are not promised tomorrow, so now is the time. Let go and go.
