Dare to Believe
Is there a dream in your heart?
They say a dream will never leave you, unlike an ‘idea’ we soon forget. You will have ideas toward your dream. Stepping stones. Jot them down.
That dream that God placed in my heart…It’s still there. When I need encouragement toward my dream, I pull it up in my mind and see it instantly and clearly, although God showed it to me years ago.
It’s always the exact same, like watching a rerun.
I am my own worst enemy for my dream. I could quit it at any given time.
Go Back to the Beginning
“If you’re not willing to begin at the beginning, you’ll never end up at the ending.”~Christine Caine
The end of August, I stepped off the beaten path and changed the name of this Blog, but a week ago, I changed it back. I didn’t think up the name Letitgocoach. It was the only name available on WordPress with the words, ‘let it go’. God knows what He’s doing, even when we don’t.
Someone in my life at the time laughed at that name. He thought it was absurd. Let them laugh.
They may look at you like you’re a nut, but to an Oak tree, you’re everything.
Hold Onto the Dream
Now that you are daring to dream, there is something else you need to encompass.
Sounds simple right? It is, but you are going to go through tests. Pass those tests. Just get through them to the very best of your ability. Every test will make you stronger, better and quicker for the next one.
Dreamers can live in a lonely world.
Listen to motivational speakers. Read uplifting books, and Blogs. Look at people who have already achieved a similar dream, and learn from them.
Keep people in your life who love you, motivate you, encourage you, inspire you, enhance you, and make you happy.
I continually let people walk out of my life.
Let Go of the Plan
I would venture to guess no football team won the Super Bowl their first year of playing. It takes years of dedication. The same with Olympic Gold Medalists. They have that dream at a young age.
How long have you had your dream?
Maybe it’s not happening as quickly as you planned, but continue laying your hand to it. Use your gift, let go of those pesky expectations, and believe.
Success is when our preparation, and God’s timing meet on the journey.
Over the years, God has given me success. At some point in the journey I’d always ask, “What is keeping me from everything you have for me?”
Each time I felt like it was my impatience.
God is the light and we are the shadow.
Life is a journey. The destination is the dream.
Dare to Believe.
Kick It In
My daughter is learning to drive.
She drives me everywhere in our Ford F150, named Steve. I was pondering a Blog while she was driving and she spit out the words, “Passing Lanes.” I don’t know if that was for me, or just what she noticed about the road.
My daughter does what’s right in driving just like the rest of her world. She goes a little over the speed limit, and get’s disturbed if the car in front of her is driving below it. She allows people to fly up on her tail and she doesn’t budge. She is obeying the law, so how they drive is on them.
The other day, she was ready to use the passing lane and warned me ahead of time. Being the first time, I was ready to talk her through, but was surprised by what happened next. She moved into the left lane, let off the gas and paused for a moment.
The car she was aiming to pass continued steady speed, so we fell behind our goal. I urged her to ‘Kick it in’, and she took off and made a successful pass.
We are hesitant to pass what’s in front of us.
These are like stumbling blocks, and must be looked at to see if it’s beneficial to our journey. I encourage you today to use your passing lane. Some things are there to try and block us from God’s greater plan, while others can be used as stepping stones.
Don’t be afraid to pass.
