"Keep your Dream Alive"

'Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine' (Eph.3V 20)
When God gives you a dream He places within you or within reach all the resources needed to fulfill it. Do you have an unthinkable, scary, absolutely wild idea that won't let you sleep? That's the way it is with dreams, especially when God is in them. They appear crazy (humanly speaking, they ARE crazy!). Placed alongside the triangle of logic, cost and timing, such dreams usually seem beyond our reach. They won't fly when you test them against the gravity of reality. And the strangest part is the more they are told 'can't' the more they pulsate 'can' and 'will' and 'must' What's behind great accomplishments? Inevitably, great people. But what is in those great people that makes them different? It's certainly not their age or gender or heritage or talent or environment. It's FAITH! They are people who think and believe differently
Are you dreaming about writing a book? Don't wait for a publisher, start writing! Are you wondering if all that work with the kids is worth it?It is!! Want to get back to university and finish that degree? Do it. Pay the price, even if it takes years! Trying to master a skill that takes time, patience and energy (not to mention money)? Press on! Thinking about going into business? Why not? It's hard to find satisfaction halfway up someone else's corporate ladder! Without a dream and the determination to fulfill it, life is reduced to bleak black and wimpy white, a diet too bland to get anybody out of bed in the morning. So go after the quest that fuels your fire. Keep your dream alive!
I just picked up "The Word for Today" and had to copy the entirety of today's 'thought for the day'. It really has me completely fired up!! In God's plan everything is possible! All I need is to believe that crazy is not crazy to Him. This is what the Bible says about the world's wisdom and its foolishness:
"If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness"; and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."(1 Corinthians 3v 18-20(a))
