Personal Development –Part 3
Last week I spoke about following your dreams. Today, I would like to share an article that I wrote about your dreams.
Do you have Dreams in the Making?
“Here comes the Dreamer! They said to each other” Genesis 37:19 NIV
Can people say this about you? Do you have dreams in the making? In the scripture, Joseph was a dreamer; his dreams were so real he just had to share them with others. Not everyone was as excited about Joseph’s dreams as he was. But, the doubt of others did not keep him from dreaming or believing what was in his heart. When others disagreed with him or when opposition came, he continued to dream.
Life did not always take the route that he had planned and sometimes life happens and things don’t always go our way, but we cannot stop our dreaming. Even when he was falsely accused and thrown into prison, he kept on dreaming and allowed God to work behind the scenes to fulfill the dreams of his heart.
So, today, I encourage you, no matter what has happened in your life or what life has thrown at you, to keep dreaming. The dreams are God-given and you need to hold them dear to your heart until they have been fulfilled. Do your part, which is to keep believing, continue to walk in forgiveness, keep following your heart and stay obedient to His Word. As you stay in faith, just like Joseph, you will see the fulfillment of your dreams.
“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do super abundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams”.
We train individuals, families, churches and groups to befriend this forgotten generation.
