Just For Today: Dreams Take Time

The past few weeks, I’ve allowed myself to pile my mind up with so many ideas that I was beginning to lose myself in all the clutter. I want to do this… I want to do that… my mind was non-stop with wonderful ideas. I began to feel this feeling of uneasiness and overwhelm so I had to take a few steps back and look at my mindset and start to communicate more with God. I began to talk out loud saying ” God, this can’t be right I’m feeling overwhelmed and way too anxious”. The answered I got back was an eye opener for me ” Just because you are following me, doesn’t make you superwoman”. Why would I think I could take on so many things at once. Now I know.

Dreams take time and they can only be accomplished one day at a time. There’s no need to try and pack all your dreams into a month or year. As long as you are making progress each and every day you are one day closer. Sometimes we just have to take in the learning process and enjoy the journey, because if we are piling our plates with too much stuff we might miss a value lesson or a blessing.

I say this to encourage anyone who is on a journey to fulfilling their dreams and are feeling overwhelmed never be afraid to go back to the basic and center your focus. When your mind is focused beautiful things are birthed, so take one step at a time. Gather a few goals and complete those before moving to the next. Beautiful things take time to blossom and as long as you continue to nurture it, it will continue to grow.

Meditation of the Week

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 COR 10:13

This week I found it hard to post, I was busy with work and by the time I came home I was dog tired.Even when I woke in the morning I was still so fatigued, I was tempted to just give up because I couldn’t seem to find time to write.

Some of you may be tempted to give up your dreams because other things are becoming overwhelming and your dream doesn’t look as bright as it use too. God always makes a way of escape if he has given you the mind to start your dream, he will give you the mind to finish it. He knows your limits and what you can handle, you are strong! We just have to set aside a few things weighing us down.

Unfortunately, I can’t lay aside my job because I want to write but he does give me strength and the mindset to avoid other temptations and prioritize my weeks. He wouldn’t keep my mind full of ideas if he didn’t provide me with the right tools. He wouldn’t place a marvelous idea in your head if he knew it wouldn’t manifest. All God is doing is raising the bar because he knows your potential, sometimes the biggest accomplishments blossom under pressure.

This week know that your dreams will manifest in due time, keep working hard at it and stay positive. Great things arise in positive atmospheres.

 

Have A Great Week!
