Stirring Up Your Dreams...

I read this devotional this morning and had to share it with all of you. It has reminded me that I need to stir up my dreams of becoming a mother...


“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...”~ Timothy 1:6

The Scripture tells us that without vision, people perish. If you don’t have a dream or vision for your life, you’re not really going to reach your fullest potential. Maybe at one time you had a dream, but you went through some disappointments or setbacks. Things didn’t turn out the way you planned. But here’s a key: when one dream dies, dream another dream. Just because it didn’t work out the way you had it planned doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have another plan. You cannot allow one disappointment or even a series of disappointments to convince you that your dream is over. It’s time to dig your heals in and hold on to the promises in your heart. Stir up those God-given dreams today and watch Him pour out His favor and blessing upon you and fulfill every desire in your heart!

My dream isn't over!!!! He WILL fulfill every  desire in my heart!!!

It is beautifully written. Sometimes, I think, we just have to change our focus to something else and things will start to happen. It is a matter of we truly let God take care of the desires of our hearts. And for us (OCD people) it is almost impossible to not be in control.

I am praying for you always!!!

I am going to print this out and keep it on my desk at work. I need to be reminded each day that my dream is still in the works and that the Lord will fulfill my desires soon.
