We Must Do the Work!     

 

Well here we are almost at the end of January, I was just wondering if you’ve made any resolutions at the beginning of the year? If so are you still working on them or have you already grown discouraged and gave up on meeting them this year?  I know how exciting it is to make New Year’s resolutions during such an emotional high!  However, when all of the celebrating and partying is over the real work must begin.  For many of us, we totally regret ever making those resolutions during the hype of all of the emotional clichés.

I am not writing this to try to discourage you further.  I am writing instead to encourage you to do the work.  Yes it is hard and grueling, but it is well worth every effort!  Do you know why?  Because when you made the resolution, emotionally or not, there was something that you wanted or desired on the inside so much that you said it out loud!  I am here to celebrate with you again!  Let’s pretend like the “ball” just now dropped at Time Square!  Do you remember the power you felt inside as the ball had dropped less than a month ago? Well feel that power again! It is what will spark your hope that you could make changes, dream new dreams or set new goals?  It is still with you, you haven’t lost it!  I am here to help you fan the flame as it were to cause the spark to erupt into a full blaze!  Come on you can do this thing!

Just wanted to give a brief update, my number one goal or resolution was that this year I wanted to do something with all of my stories “books” that I’ve written and left buried in my computer document files for many years?  I had to ask myself “what are you waiting for?”  So I began editing three of my stories and decided to do a little short story book entitled Mazy’s High Flying Adventure!  I am so excited to say that I finished the book and it is already available on Amazon, etc.  NO this is not a sales pitch where I am trying to sell my books, but I wanted to simply share that in order for our dreams to come, we have to put in the work! Even though I had already worked hard at writing the stories, to turn them into an actual book meant some long nights of editing, cropping pictures, etc.  Whether we feel like it or not, we must dig inside and find the reason that we desired to reach the goal in the first place.  I’ve just begun, but wanted to start my year off with success as soon as I could so that I could encourage myself to continue on!

I just wanted to encourage you to shake off all of the doubt and discouragement and go forward! Finish one of the goals that may take the least work so that you can see a measure of success! Prioritize!  Maybe you’ve been trying to do something to reach your goal that isn’t quite working!  Hey I’ve been there and done that many times, but the main thing is that you don’t give up on your dreams because what you tried didn’t work.  Go for it at another angle, or a different way!  The old adage “where there is a will, there is a way” applies here.  Come on my friend you can do it! I can hear the fireworks of celebration can you?

 

 

 

 

I’m Dreaming with GOD are you?

“Inspiring One Dreamer at a Time!”

Secret Getaway 027

Dreaming with GOD may sound like a wild notion for some of you, for others it makes perfect sense. Dreaming with GOD is really just seeing yourself as GOD sees you. Dreaming with GOD also means that you have what GOD wants you to have in order to become all that He has called you to be. Why? The answer is so that only GOD can get glory out of your life and your life’s purpose will be fulfilled the way that GOD planned for you.

The dreams that the Lord has given me personally are things that I cannot fulfill without him! He wants to co-labor with me to fulfill his purposes in my life.   Dreams fulfilled by GOD only come by faith…All of what the Father has for me can only be obtained by faith in what Jesus has made available to me.

Many of us have dared to dream and have never seen them come to pass. We ended up heartbroken and so we gave up.  Let me encourage you start again!   Press in and believe God to help you!

Proverbs 13:12 (KJV) Hope deferred maketh the heart-sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

The Bible also states that when a desire is fulfilled that it is sweet to the soul! It gives our Father great pleasure to give His Kingdom to His children…Won’t you begin dreaming with GOD today and let him cause your dreams to become reality!

Dreaming with GOD is not some mystical thing, it is simply thinking and meditating upon what he has done for us and what he says is ours now that we have come into a heavenly kingdom. Jesus taught his desciples to pray the following:

Matthew 6:5 (KJV)  And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

 :7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

 :8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

 :9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

 :10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

 :11 Give us this day our daily bread.

 :12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

 :13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Where? On earth as it is in heaven.. What is available in heaven?   Everything that we could possibly imagine or hope for is in heaven right?  When do we partake of it?  NOW!

He has made it available to us through Jesus’death and resurrection, we are not orphans who have nothing. NO, we are Kings Kids and we have a Kingdom that we can access by faith…! How exciting to know that according to the word of GOD the limits are off!

Mark 11:23 (KJV) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 

What limits us from receiving what the Father has for us more than anything,  I believe,  is how we see ourselves.  So many times we see ourselves in the light of how we grew up, and in the light of what others said we were!  Unfortunately, our images of ourselves many times are distorted.  When the Lord begins to show us a different image on the inside we have a difficult time seeing past what others told us that we were.  I am in no way blaming people in my life for what I’ve become because everyone does the best that they know to do!  My point is simply that once I find out from the scripture how the Lord sees me than I want to be like that!  I want to be all He says that I am!

Jeremiah 29:11 I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

I love this scripture because it shows us that the Lord already has a wonderful plan for our lives, so what are we waiting for? The scripture also says he does exceedingly, abundantly, more than we can ask or think. Have you ever just thought or imagined how much that is…if you have then you are Dreaming with GOD!

I wanted to encourage you that it’s never too late!  You are never too old to dream.  If you have dreamed a dream and it did not come when or how you thought it should have, dream again.  Don’t quit until you see your desires come!  Get up and walk toward that thing whatever it may be, just don’t quit!
