I found myself earlier this week at the hair salon sitting under the dryer. Ladies, I think we can estimate how long I was there for. While my hair dried I began to think about my personal Dream Chasing journey. Believe or not, I am rereading through my own book to find reminders and encouragement as I face a new mountain to climb.
I love the idea how God doesn’t allow us to settle for less. He doesn’t allow one goal achieved, one battle won to commence our journey. I’ve learned that each victory builds your faith and gives you more ammunition to take on the next giant.
So no matter where you are on your journey, I wanted these few points from my book notes to encourage you.
- Silence their fears and amplify their faith
Fear will always follow you like a shadow. Your job is to shine the light of truth over it so it diminishes. When that erry voice tells you to hold off or that no one will support you. Turn up your faith and move forward. Do this be speaking positive affirmations and the word of God over your situations. Say things like:
- All of my needs are met
- My harvest is coming
- I am full of faith and not fear
- Acknowledge your insecurities and embrace grace
We all have an area in our life that we aren’t as confident as we should be in. Maybe your lack of education, body frame, or the way you speak sometimes makes you second guess yourself. This is when you have to confess that you are fearfully and wonderfully made and that God’s grace can bridge the gap.
- The process builds character
If you have ever witnessed the beauty of the Taj Mahal, Effel Tower, or the skyscrapers downtown what you probably haven’t seen is its foundation. No one boasts about how solid the concrete holding up these works of art are. Compliments are only give to the exterior. The process to building your dream is making you strong, so you can stand the test of time. The process builds character and proves how bad you want it. With this thought understand that with every step of preparation you are fortifying your dream to have great impact.
I hope these tidbits have encouraged you. Continue to believe in yourself and the power of God working in you. Be sure to pick up Dream Chaser for an in depth guide to putting your dreams in motion.
