I have missed writing this week, so had to stop and do so. I was noticing how delightful it is when our actions line up with God’s plan. Keep a steady, consistent hand on your passions, and don’t give up, especially when you feel like it.
It’s easy for life to cover up our dreams. We come to a realization when we’re not sure of our purpose anymore.
My daughter had stopped playing music and doing covers which is a part of her dream. She had become discouraged without me realizing it, until one day I didn’t hear the guitar playing anymore. Dreams do not become real overnight.
We want them to happen quickly, but thank God they don’t. If God had given me everything I wanted, when I wanted it, I’d be in a world of pain. God is patient, and we learn patience by practicing waiting.
My daughter is slowly reaching out toward her dreams again. If it takes a baby nine months to be ready for birth, it makes sense to me to lay your hand to your dream for at least that length of time. I give it a year.
Any venture worthwhile taken is going to take time. I applied a yearly goal to this Blog and my Letitgocoach page. At the end of the year, God shows me if I’m on the right path. My views will increase drastically on this Blog, and someone on Facebook will share a part of my page to touch more people. God encourages me so I keep going that direction.
The opposite is true when He is done with a certain dream. If we are not supposed to be spending time in a certain area, it will go nowhere. It will feel like a huge struggle and not bring us joy.
Today I am wearing a shirt that says, “Do what you like and like what you do.” Let’s change ‘like’ to ‘love’ and do that.
