Dream on

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. Prov. 13:12

Sometimes our dreams seem to be drowning in setbacks and delays and we may even decide to stop hoping in order to protect ourselves from disappointment. It can be hard to persist through obstacles and stay in it for the long haul if we don’t set some short term goals and celebrate their fulfillment. Of course it also helps to do a God check and make sure that what we pursue really does fit with His purposes and principles and to ask Him for guidance since He has the ultimate big-picture perspective.

Lord help me to stay hopeful and passionate.
