Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things with Jesus Christ Who Strengthens me, Psalms 23:1 “For the Lord Is my Shepard I shall not want”,
Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”).
I have always dreamt dreams. Prayed for things and events to happen. I tried to believe with all of my heart that they would come true. Doing this got me through a rough childhood and tumultuous teenage years. When I got older, I realized that for me, it was easier to dream and believe if I wrote down what I wanted and put it on a vision board along with pictures and scripture to stand on making what others call “a vision board” it was easier to dream. Well I don't exactly have a vision board, I have a vision wall. In my bedroom, I have the dreams I pray to come true along with scripture and pictures posted up on the wall next to my bed. Before I go to sleep, I look at them and when I wake up I stare at them to see them as my reality. And I do what I have to do to move myself forward to accomplish them.
I also have a vision table where I have translated these dreams into 3d models using toys from my childhood and other items.
I write this to say that there is power in prayer, along with envisioning and mapping out in one, two and three dimensional ways your hopes, dreams and prayers. You will be amazed when you look back and see that what you asked for will have come to life.
This Biblical principle of writing down your goals, and believing that they are true, have a designated time and will happen is a truth that is real.
If you don't have dreams, visions and goals that you can lay ahold of, you will perish. You will feel a lack of purpose and be unsure of your next move. With goals, dreams and visions which are visible, written, and prayed for and believed in you feel a sense of peace, purpose and like you know where you are headed.
So I encourage you today to write down your dreams, goals and visions. Paste them on a wall where you can see it or a book where you can carry it with you. If you need the extra like I did, there is no shame in the game to make a 3d mock up table of what you want. The more real it is to you, the more real it becomes for you. Remember you are special and deserve to live out your dreams because you deserve this and more. Until next time take care of yourself and stay special!!!
