Have you ever desired to have something so bad that you could taste it? No, I'm not talking about food, I'm talking about your dreams. I had this dream that was growing deep inside of the core of me and yesterday I thought the time had finally come to give birth to this thing. The atmosphere wasn't perfect, but what birthing environment is ever perfect. I was feeling the birthing pains like never before and I knew it was time for the baby to enter the world. And she did, this thing that I was dreaming, entered into the atmosphere and I could hold it. She was beautiful, I nursed her in my arms and I didn't want to let her go. AND THEN IT HAPPENED! I was told that there was some complication during my birthing process and because of that, I wouldn't be able to carry my dream home with me at that moment. I was devastated. I cried all the way home and screamed at God. How could he not allow me to have this thing that I gave birth to? How could he do that to me? Was this some kind of sick game where the winners were transformed into losers? I made it home and I cried even more on the couch. After being called a cry baby by my daughter I was reminded of my own words that I've ushered forth on many occasions before to bring them comfort and back to reality "What is for you is for you." At that moment I was reminded of God's truth and purpose for my life. "For He knows the plans that he has for me, plans to bless me and to give my family and I hope and a legacy for generations to come."
RESTORED!!! I AM... Chosen to be a light in dark spaces Chosen to be the truth in the midst of lies Chosen to be passion in the face of pain Chosen to be love for the loveless Chosen and I can't compromise not even for something that I really want to have. I must stand in my truth knowing that a dream deferred is still a dream that belongs to me.
1. What do you do when your yes becomes a no? 2. What do you do when your now becomes a later? 3. What do you do to clear your mind after having a breakdown moment? 4. Are you willing to keep dreaming even after the dream gets deferred?
