I had a dream! My dream was to become a nurse! Where did that dream go?! It was expanded to touch the lives of women in my community, Jamaica, and worldwide. To help them understand why they were created and to live into that understanding and share it with others.
What is your dream?! Have you forgotten it?! You can still live it! It has not died. You may not remember it or think you will never fulfill it – that is only if you give up! It's time to shake the dust from off your dream.
Ask yourself these three questions:
- Why was I created?
- What are my skills, gifts and strengths?
- What am I passionate about?
When you begin to understand these questions fully, you can begin to live fully. Its time to take the focus off self and begin to live for what you were created – to serve others. James 1:27 says, "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you."
Stir up the dreams in your heart, ask God to help you awaken to them daily, and seek the help of a trusted guide – someone who have discovered their dreams, understand what they were created for, and is willing to help you.
