Dreams & Goals.
Do you have a dream that scares the living daylights out of you, but you feel like God's calling you to accomplish it?
Has God placed a desire for you to do something, and you feel that tug?
I've felt the gentle push.
Is God now revealing to you through His Word and still small Voice, the confirmation?
He is for me.

I'm not going to go into detail about my specific dream/goal, but I'm here to encourage you with yours. ;)
If the Lord has placed a desire in your heart, it's for a reason, not by chance. He cares about what you care about. So, pray and ask Him about it, tell Him what's on your heart and mind. I'll tell you by experience: I prayed for a certain thing during the middle of the summer, that if God truly wanted me to purse it, He'd help me and give me the strength and courage to go after it. Guess what? In September, He answered, and gave me beyond than what I had requested. In small steps, He's helping me work toward my goal.
The next thing I want you to know is you're not too young or too old for God to call you with the specific thing (can't find a better word lol) you're meant to do. He has a designated time to make it happen, and believe me, it's for a purpose. So don't feel out of place when He tells you to do something, He doesn't just do something without reason or for Him just to sit back and watch. He does it for a specific reason.
I was beginning to wonder if the dream of mine was worth it. Do you ever get that way?
"It's too expensive." "What will people think of me?" "Will I be disliked?" "It seems too complicated." "What if it's more than I can handle?" "This is a dream of mine, but it scares me."
Wanna hear something? I don't care. Yes you heard me: I. Don't. Care. God has placed this desire in the depth of my heart, and I'm going to try my very best to chase after it with all my heart. I will listen to Him and His call for me. Satan is just trying his to keep you from doing God's Will. He's placing these thoughts in your head to distract you, confuse you, and direct you down the very wrong path. DON'T LISTEN TO THOSE LIES! God tells the truth, satan causes confusion.
Sometimes you do second guess yourself though, and I get it. We all do it. But God, He works in mysterious ways. He'll show you through the Bible. He'll show you in grocery stores (of all places? yes!). He'll reveal to you that yes, as a matter of fact, you aren't crazy and it's going to be okay, because He's going to go with You all the way. He'll confirm if what you're supposed to be doing is in His Will.
I have a dream, I think you do to, or my blogpost would have been a different one today. God placed this post on my mind, I shared it with you, now what are you going to do with it? Act on it or do something about it?
Has God not given you your purpose, or shown you your dream yet? That's okay, because it's all about His timing. Until then, pray and don't give up!
I love you lots, but God loves you even more! :)
