Are you pressing toward or settling?
I had an awakening this week. I realized that I was spending hours and hours settling. That probably doesn't make much sense unless you really know all the details.
But, trust me, I have been settling. I have been looking for something and as different options presented themselves, I would think, "that COULD work"... but in my heart, I was disappointed. It was nothing like I really wanted.
Over and over again I felt myself giving up and not pressing toward my dream, but just settling... accepting mediocre, okay, average.
Well, I guess you could say that I had an epiphany - an awakening, a revelation, an awareness.
I realized that I did not have to give up my dreams and hopes, but I would have to be patient and diligent and press toward them.
So, my question to you is... have you given up on a dream because it seemed too unreachable or too hard to obtain?
You know, in Proverbs it says that "hope deferred makes the heart sick". You know the feeling - sick in the pit of your stomach - disappointed - sad - almost like you lost something you never had.
I pray that you will see the fulfillment of your hopes and dreams come to pass. Let's press toward together... we are born for greatness and honor - as long as we keep it in perspective and allow Jesus to be our Head and Who we want to serve and honor first.
