Your Dreams Fall Apart

Sometimes a dream falls apart and falters because of who you’re with, who is around you, and who is in your circle.
Even our family members and friends can be a drain and a detriment to what we’re building.  In Genesis 12:1, the Lord said to Abraham. “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.”  Sometimes, the blessings that God wants to give you aren’t for those who are in your current situation.
Some people shouldn’t even be in the room when you discuss your plans.  Their negative energy, doubts, and criticism don’t nurture your dream.  Everyone can’t be a part of building your dream.  Some people have no vision. Some people are too afraid to dream.  Dream building can get messy and can be tedious.  Most times it’s not an overnight process.  It takes time and everyone doesn’t have enough faith and patience to see it through with you.
Sometimes you’ll find that the people in your life have no problem with dreaming, unless it’s you.  Anybody off the street can dream. Famous people can dream, but not you.  And if they do give you permission to dream, they don’t think you should be dreaming so big.  Leave those big dreams for the really important people.  Why don’t you bite off something a bit more manageable?  Just be more realistic.
When you’re dreaming, you need people who have vision and courage.  You need people who know that it’s okay to dare to dream. You need people who believe in possibilities, who can look past now, and see something beautiful on the horizon.
I’ve said it and heard it said many times. Your dream has no deadline.  I don’t care if you’re 30, 40 or 50 years old. Unless you hear the Lord say no- then keep marching.  Keep believing.  Keep preparing.  Keep putting forth effort toward your goals.
And always stay on the lookout for anyone who seems to pose a threat to what you’re trying to accomplish.  Ask the Lord to show you who should be in your life and who you should let go.  When the Lord shows you what you need to see, don’t be afraid. Step out in faith with Christ and you’ll be just fine.  The Lord knows best and wants what’s best for you.  So, if He tells you it isn’t a good idea for certain people to tag along on your journey, believe Him and be obedient. 

Remember, I believe in you because I believe in who made you.
