‘You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.’ - C.S. Lewis.
As I sat down to write this my heart instantly felt heavy. The weight of my own unfulfilled dreams hit me like a wave. Unrelenting; a tsunami to my soul. I’ve always been a dreamer, but I have not always seen my dreams come to life. When I was much younger, I had such a strong belief that my dreams would come true. What I did not know then was the price I had to pay to walk out the process.
Are you disillusioned with where you are in your life right now? Feeling a little lost, hopeless, left out? Does dreaming for something to come to pass in your life seem like a complete impossibility?
There is nothing I can offer to you other than words from my own playbook. I’ve been in a season where I’ve had to continuously bring my dreams before God and ask Him to either take them from me, or give me the faith to keep going forward. You see, I’ve experienced disappointment and doubt all along the way. Daily, I have had questions swirling in my mind. I’ve played the 'what if’ game, and asked ‘why’ more times than I can count.
So you see we are in the same boat, you and me.
That brings me back to the question, how do we set ourselves up to dream again? Is it even possible?
Maybe you have experienced unimaginable loss or rejection. Perhaps you believed that by now you would be married, have the business you’ve always wanted. It’s hard to keep a dream alive when our hearts are pierced with pain and disappointment.
Have you been tempted to take matters into your own hands? I know I have. It’s too easy to think just because the timing hasn’t been like what we think it should be that we need to do something about it. But, when we do the results always end in disaster.
Stop over complicating things.
Stop over analyzing every situation.
Stop taking matters into your own hands.
Start letting go of the control.
Allow God to do the work that He wants to do.
Realize that your dreams are just a reflection of the work that He will do through you.
Here is the truth my friend… God is not done with you. Even if you have failed, doubted, felt pain beyond anything you could have dreamt, God will come through on HIs promise. Why? The dream was from Him to begin with. Reposition yourself to hear Him again. You’re never going to be too old, too broken, or made too many mistakes to begin to dream again.
