When I think of dreams, I think of the movie, Field of Dreams. And I hear those words, "If you build it they will come."
God gives us dreams. Some of us don't hear Him so those dreams are never brought into being.
Some of us hear Him but we are afraid to even try, therefore those dreams don't come into reality either. But leaves us sad and empty and sometimes bitter.
Then some of us hear Him and we heed His calling. We go out and begin putting things into motion to bring about the dream He has given us.
When we do that, we need to listen closely every day to hear his leading, nudging us in the direction to go and being confident that He will open the doors that are necessary to bring everything into fruition...after all He gave us the dream. So this gives us the assurance to know we are doing His will.
It takes courage to build the dream you are given, it takes patience, and it re-quires you to be humble and dependent upon Him daily. Each day will have periods of ups and downs. There will be times we are tired, there will be times we will get frustrated and there will even be times we will question when things seem hard or not falling into place.
The days we are tired, perhaps we tried to carry it on our own. The days we are frustrated maybe it was because we tried to make things happen. Those times we begin to question because things seem hard maybe it's because we tried to run ahead of God instead of being patient for Him to move and open the doors.
Through all of this we will find our path if laid out by God, we just have to take His hand and let Him lead us on this path. He has a plan, and will reveal it to us one step at a time. Trust in Him.
We have to get His words down into our very being. Luke 1:37 says it best.
"For with God nothing shall be impossible." (KJV)
I am also reminded of God's word in Hebrews 6:15. "And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise."
We will do well to remember His words.
