I have a dream that burns inside my heart. It casts a vivid vision in my mind; filled with clarity. The destination seems certain, but the pathway leading me there isn't as much. Although each step is unclear, the place I discover most joy is on the journey.
It's a trip where my character is revealed through the way I respond to adversity.
It's a venue where I fail, get back up, and then succeed.
It's an adventure where each step I take leads to growth.
It's progress in learning that sometimes the right decision is the one that hurts the most.
It's when my faith is challenged.
It's progress in realizing the dream that God instilled in my heart.
And most of all, it's path that's only lit when my full trust is in the One who is I AM.
ALONG THE WAY
Along the way there are detours, bumps in the road, and wrong turns.
There are also beautiful views, magnificent sunsets, and worthwhile purpose.
Every day the journey emerges clearer and my scope reveals more of God's plan. Not because I've found some secret, but because I'm trusting God to direct my steps. This dream I'm referring to can't be stripped from me. Despite the world's attempts to divert me, I will continue to hold on to the promises that God has given me.
We are all on a unique journey and we all have a dream burning inside of us. Regardless of the circumstances trying to bump us off course, stay true to the principles that will keep us running full steam ahead, chasing that dream!
