Fulfilling Your Dream Takes Work
It’s nice to believe that all we need is a dream and the passion to start that dream and everything will fall immediately into place; then we walk into the sunset and live happily ever after.
Well…Keep dreaming (sorry, but you had to know that was coming).
No, to fulfill a dream takes work and massive amounts of it. We have to live it out each and every moment of the day. Every extra minute devoted to the next step in the process of our journey to reach that destiny.
The pathway to our purpose will have plenty of rough spots and difficulties. We’ll experience times of weakness when we want to just walk away never to return…if not for that voice deep down that says:
if you do, you will regret it” we probably would give up. There will be plenty of highs on this journey too but I am finding an equal number of lows.
But isn’t that what makes its accomplishment worth the journey? And isn’t that the reason why we have a dream in the first place? Because we know that when we finally reach up and touch that star we will look back and see how far we’ve had to travel to be at that moment; then we’ll have a deeper appreciation for our dream and be better stewards of it.
God gave us the dream and all we need to know is that if He gave it to us and we work hard toward fulfilling it; it will be achieved because God’s promises always come to pass. He is the author of our destinies and when we accomplish them He is glorified. That’s why we can take comfort knowing that He wants us to succeed.
So, when the work gets overwhelming and the path seems to have run out of road just remember who gave you your destiny and know that there is no obstacle that is too big for God.
