Dreamer……don’t give up on your dreams. On June 24, 2012, I posted “Want”. Part of the post included an excerpt from my journal while I was at the beach earlier that summer. My journal was me telling God what I wanted and how I thought it should work out. The rest of the post was about me realizing that it wasn’t working out at all like I wanted. It was painful. I was where I didn’t want to be doing what I didn’t want to do. But I knew He was preparing me and so I declared that I would keep dreaming and trusting.
God has given me one of my dreams. And it’s a better dream than I dreamed! Yesterday I began doing exactly what I told Him I wanted to do: “give me a great job…..that will use my strengths and combine all of the things I’m passionate about to help others.” I started my job with Epic Church yesterday.
The path to here was much different than I thought it would be. The path prepared me, gave me confidence, made me stronger and wiser. And I’m here!
Thank you, God, for knowing me better than I know myself. Thank you for my dreams and preparing me for them. Thank you for the courage to dream and the perseverance to stay on the path. I can hardly wait to see what’s next!!
