How often do we think about our dreams and never take the steps to claim them? We want to be involved in a particular project but are afraid of rejection, so we never ask to join. We want to have a better job but are afraid of failure, so we never apply ourselves to gaining the needed skills. We want to be in a loving relationship but are afraid of heartbreak, so we never give of ourselves to another person. We want to stand up for our ideals but are afraid of being judged, so we sit idly by while bad things happen around us. We want to be financially secure but are afraid of self discipline, so we continue to live paycheck to paycheck. We want to be serve God more boldly but are afraid of sacrifice, so we go with the flow and never answer His call.
What do you dream of but are too afraid to reach for? Does your fear of rejection, failure, heartbreak, being judged, self discipline, or sacrifice keep you from your dreams? It shouldn’t.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.~Isaiah 41:10
Give you fears to God and claim your dream!
