Never give up on your dreams
Be blessed 2 Peter 3 vs 8-9
ut do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
Birthdays are a significant milestone in anyone’s life, they give us the opportunity to not only reflect and look back but to envision the future as well. Our lives are all similar despite our differences, we all have dreams. Others have big dreams whilst some have pintsized dreams that aptly resonate with their faith.
The significance of birthdays is that each passing year as you grow older, you are supposed to have gained experience, knowledge and wisdom. Often times it does not quite work out like that, and at times we all wonder why nature is being retrogressive by not allowing someone to grow.
Experience and age should teach us that with each passing day, you are inching closer to your intended goal. We are sometimes easily discouraged when things don’t work out the way we want them to and within the time frame we have prescribed for ourselves.
It’s as if we put a timer on issues and declare that it cannot happen a minute later, we try and plan everything to a tee. We leave very few issues to chance and when our plans don’t quite match with our reality, we become upset and despondent and we almost want to give up and stop living.
Some of the goals we set can sometimes put us under so much internal pressure that instead of being a blessing, they start to take away from our happiness. Our happiness and warmth is eroded because what we wanted to happen this year has not happened in the manner and time frame we set.
Age should teach us one fundamental lesson, which is that in life there are certain things you can not change despite your best intentions. This does not, however, mean you should give up on your dreams.
Rather you should be patient and realistic in the time frames you set, you should be equally accommodative of changes that may occur along the way. Hiccups, pitfalls and distractions may slow down your journey and delay you but they will not take from your vision.
What if tomorrow, you were to be given everything you have prayed for and wished for including your wildest dreams that fuel your ego, what would happen soon after that? Would the realisation of your dream be met with euphoria and great happiness or soon after you would experience an anti-climax that would soon push you to yearn and aspire for more?
Our lives have somehow been predestined, things will happen that we never foresaw but they are meant to drive us to our destiny and our future. As we slowly inch through the years let us remember this thought: what will we do with the gifts that we have wished for that have been granted? Are we going to use them to better our communities or are we going to forget that with ability comes responsibility that extends further than just living for you?
Experience should teach us that everything will come to pass and at the right moment, according to God’s will, your destiny and His will shall meet. Pray for that understanding.
