'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Eternal, 'plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that'. ~ Jeremiah 29:11 The Voice
What is your dream?
I may not know you, but I do know that you have a dream. I do too. To be honest, sometimes I dream way too much! But I also know that in order for me to dream, I also need to be aware of the cost of those dreams. I need to fight for them! And there is a price. A price worth paying. In here, you will see some of my dreams. Hopefully, I can encourage you to believe in your goals and ambitions, and never let go of them.
I have always dreamed of singing, and making music. Now that I know Jesus, of course I want to sing and make music that brings Him glory. I am grateful to be one of the worship leaders in my local church, which I find absolutely amazing, but it is also a great responsibility. Singing takes a lot of practice, passion and devotion. Seeking God does too. And it is wonderful to be able to do what you love most for the One that you love the most.
Another dream of my heart is playing an instrument, and that is the piano. I have tried to learn, but I have not given it the time and dedication needed. But I yearn for this! When I actually play the piano at home, I feel like I was made to do it. I just need practice. And more practice.
I started writing when I was 9. I loved doing it, and I still do. Writing is very special to me because you can express yourself in ways that maybe you cannot do when you are speaking. Even though I enjoy this form of art very much, I feel like there is something in me that needs to be awaken. I believe there are so many stories and tales hidden in my soul that need to be written and shared with the world. This blog helps me do exactly that.
Yes, just like the image above, one of my crazy dreams is to get married, have a beautiful wedding, and of course, have the best husband ever. I do not think I have met the "love of my life" yet, but anyhow, you can always dream about it. God bless you future hubby, if you are reading this, ha! :)
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. ~ Walt E. Disney
I heard one of my favorite singers saying that God wants us to dream, and to fulfill each of those dreams, but He wants to do it with us. In other words, the Father wants to be part of every dream we have, big or small, why? Because He loves us. Life is more interesting if our Creator is in the center of it. The Lord wants to walk with us every step of the way. God wants us to dream big, because He is a big and extraordinary God.
Just do it!
