Living the reason for your dreams

You will meet people who tell you that your dreams are unattainable and unrealistic. Forgive them for their limited vision and focus on realizing your dreams anyway. By reaching out to others in their struggles, they will see that you care. Caring and being there for each other should be what life is all about. My wisest mentors have been the most vulnerable people. They dare to be real and available. They take the time to mentor others. They help them soar to their God-given potential. Take time from your busy schedule to thank them for helping shape who you are.

Christ for those who believe in Him, gives us our reason, our purpose for living. We give Him our heart with all its experiences of abuse and rejection, of an inner nagging heartache, and He gives us a new heart filled with life and an inner power that defies human explanation.

For those who don’t believe in God, I believe that the conscience within you that says something is right or wrong has to come from somewhere. I have spoken with many who say they don’t believe in God, that we are the product of evolution. If that alone is true, then how can they explain the order and symmetry, how all the animals, plants,  the birds in the sky and the seas and oceans of the world all inter-connect with one another?

We are here for a divine purpose, a reason, for a mission that is uniquely designed for us. You are not an accident of evolution. You are supposed to be here.

Don’t listen to people who stomp all over your dreams. God put them there for His kingdom purposes. If you feel that tug in your spirit that you should reach for a dream to be a doctor, teacher, business person, minister or whatever occupation you feel a calling to and you have sought wise counsel, and things fall into place in God’s time, then I urge you to take God’s hand and run with Him to the dreams He has put upon your heart.

Christ’s critics branded Him a lunatic and even an enemy of Rome. He was spit upon, rejected and reviled, and yet He pressed on to His calling to give His life for suffering and sinful humanity.

So, when people tell you your dreams are unattainable and unrealistic, just be true to the dreams God has put upon your heart. Soar like the eagle to those dreams, the fulfilled life that God wants to give you.

Open yourself up to the river of God’s richest blessings. In doing that you will make the Lord smile, because you are reaching the stars of your potential with Him.

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. Your last two paragraphs encapsulate the whole and speak strongly to me. Thank you.x

    • You’re most welcome. How did this piece speak strongly to you?

      Blessings,

      Kevin

      • The last two paragraphs confirmed for me everything I have been feeling strongly about recently and determined to act on. The mention of the eagle, the river and the stars just put the tin lid on it; that you were confirming what i have been feeling. I love when that happens. And it’s been happening a lot lately. Really, a lot. Like i’m being told to fulfil what I feel I have to do. So thank you for sharing it. 🙂 x

      • I am so deeply touched in my heart that what I shared confirmed what you are being told to fulfil. That is just so awesome for me to hear! Please let me know how everything is progressing.

        Blessings,

        Kevin
