"You have to dream before your dreams can come true." -- A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
I believe I've always been a dreamer. It's what has kept me going during the less than savoury times. As a little girl I dreamed of travelling to far of lands with my loved ones, and living a life fuelled by inspiration and the pursuit of new exploits. My 20's were much about thinking deeply about how I wanted my life to be, and now that I am in my 30's, it's very much about being intentional about the things I think about, and how I can translate them into action that yields results I can be proud of. The act of dreaming - or letting my mind wander undeterred, has in many ways enhanced my faith and allowed me to channel my thinking towards my work and actions in relation to others. I do not take the power it harnesses lightly, as it has been the fuel that ignites the passion that can sometimes lie dormant on account of trying to stay on top of the every day grind.
What has dreaming done for you?
If you could be or do anything in life - today, now, with no limitations to your resources, what would you be?
Can you feel how warm your heart feels when you think about this?
That is the power of dreaming. Couple that with prayer and active faith, and things will only get better!
Ephesians 3:20 reads: - "Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us."
We credit Him for making our dreams come true, but GOD also challenges us to write down the vision - or the things we dream about - and make it plain. Can a vision exist without dreaming about and pushing towards it? Can we afford to not erase the thoughts of impossibility so we can pave way for our imaginations to activate that fire we need to take the next big leap? Dare to dream! Don't think and dream small because nothing GOD has ever done could ever be labelled as small. Do and dream bigger! The world awaits and your world only changes with your input; input of which is only activated my the nature of your dreams!
