DON’T LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR DREAMS ~ following are some notes that I have written down from articles that I have read. I have also included notes to myself that I am sharing for that someone else that I KNOW needs to hear this today.
Have you ever let down your guard and shared your dreams/plans with someone or in a group environment. You thought it was a trusted protective environment. Only you find out that it was not. The plans you shared in fact were taken by another and they took the idea and ran with it and you were left holding the bag . The plans were stomped on and you heard discouraging words all along the way. Well, I am here to tell you don’t let anyone steal your dreams. The God we serve sees everything. He is a just God ~ He is in the business of making wrong things right. What the enemy has stolen the Lord will restore. Actually, the Lord can take that dream and multiply it into something we could never dream or imagine.
“Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be the glory.”Ephesians 3:20
It sounds good, being strengthened with power, using that power to accomplish more than we can ask or even imagine. In fact, it has become, for me, one of those passages from scripture that keeps getting played over and over in my mind. We MUST confidently have faith in this. BELIEVE IT. MEDITATE on it. We also have to put our plans into action.
What are Dreams? Dreams are made to come true, so don’t let anyone steal your dreams from you. KNOW that it doesn’t say anything about you but it says a whole lot about them when they do this to you.
From the days when we were little boys/girls we were told “You can be anything you want to be, and do anything you want to do.” We’ve always been taught to dream big, “if we shoot for the moon, then you’ll end up with the stars.” Right. So why is it as we go through life, getting older, we hear more and more that it’s not possible, it can’t be done, why are you wasting your time with that just give up on your crazy dreams and be happy with where you are and what you have. I believe dreams are worth fighting for, dreams are not envisioned to remind us of what will never be, they are not reminders to us of a lifestyle we cannot achieve. So what are dreams, I believe dreams are a vision of what our mind knows is possible, be fearless and determined knowing that you will achieve anything your heart and mind can imagine.
BE A DREAMER
There is NO Book, Rule, Law, or Person that determines, how big you can dream,. The only thing that determines this is “YOU” and your drive, desire, and determination. If you desire to become wealthier, more athletic, or increase your spiritual relationship, the only one who can change this is “YOU.” This may require you to study the beliefs, habits, and strategies that will allow you to grow into the successful person that you want to become. Never, Never, Give up. Never Quit. We are all meant to be great, remember “If you can Dream it, You can Achieve it.”
What are dreams killers? There have been, and will be many more times when the people we care about the most unknowingly or knowingly attempt to kill our dreams. It’s not because they don’t want you to be successful and achieve your dreams. It is merely that we are all different people, we like different thing, have different ambitions, dreams and desires.
There are a few who are Dream Killers, these people are afraid that if you change, grow and succeed that they might lose you, so they try to hold you back in fear that they will be left behind. Mark my words, whoever you spend time with is who you will become. Jim Rohn said, “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If you surround yourself with positive, successful, driven, like-minded people, that is who you will become.
I keep saying over and over IF MY GOD…MY LOVING FATHER is for ME that it does not matter who is against me, I will succeed for He is my guide. He and He alone is my strength and I will trust in Him. For He is the dream maker~ He will accomplish the dreams that He has placed in our hearts. We must have faith and take action. Some times we have to take the first step and then He will show up. The waters will part in His timing.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Everyone can achieve extrodinary things its those who BELIEVE they can that do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Keeping the faith for I have the ONLY living God on my side. He has got this and my job is to listen for His voice and keep an obedient heart. HE AND HE ALONE IS FAITHFUL ~
