I know sometimes the road you have chosen seems hard and pointless. There are obstacles; some you knew would come and others that have been quite unexpected. The doubts and fears they never go away I’m afraid, instead they get louder. Don’t worry though, this means you are on the right track and a breakthrough is right around the corner, if you just hang in there.
People won’t always support you like you hoped they would, they think that you could be doing something better with your time. But don’t let their words stop you. Think on them if you must (to see if there is any truth to them), for a moment, but not a minute longer. Satan could be using them to hinder you. And you can’t let that happen. You must never stop moving forward. This dream? It’s yours not theirs, that is why they do not understand what you are doing.
It’s not selfish to dream and it’s not a lack of faith to plan and take steps. God can’t do anything with you if you are being still. Let your heart be still and pray for His wisdom. You don’t have to strive to make it all happen on your own. God will bring people in your life to love on you and encourage you when you think you can’t take another step.
He brought us together ‘for such a time as this’ every day perfectly planned and already written down. He sees you; He is El Roi, after all, the God that sees. And He knows your every tendency. There is nothing that will happen now or down the road that will surprise Him. He has either allowed it or planned for it.
The world needs your ideas and words, and creative one of a kind perspective. Please don’t allow the world to change who you are in an effort to conform you to its ways. You are better than that. Following after your God given dream is the only way to be true to you. It’s the only way to have peace with who you are.
I know you can do this, I believe in you!
So go, go after those dreams that won’t leave you alone. Follow hard after them. And one day, when your time on this earth is finished, you will get the honor of being before your Father and hear Him say “Well done, my faithful servant”(Matthew 25:21) and you will be in awe of what the two you accomplished all because you decided to trust and have faith.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For,
“In just a little while,
he who is coming will come
and will not delay.”
But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him.”
But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved. (Hebrews 10:35-39, emphasis mine)
