Dreams motivate and keep me going. It fires me up and makes me get on my feet and start scribbling things down for a new book. When you have dreams, it fires you up to face your challenges, not allowing the challenges to stop you, because you want your dreams to come alive, Zech.4:6-9. Keep going until the final whistle is blown as in a football field. Never let yesterday’s disappointments overshadow today’s dreams because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Situations around will make you see your mission as ‘impossible’ but be courageous, and don’t give in to them. With God all things are possible. Many have left and abandoned their marriages, children, jobs/careers, passion, even ministerial callings because of challenges.
Refuse to quit, refuse to end before its time. When others are saying there is a casting down, say to yourself there is lifting for me –Job 22:28-29 “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up, and he shall save the humble person.”
Make these challenges the stepping stones to your goal and achievement, use them as a platform for your next move. They are part of the courses you have to take in life’s training especially as a child of God. You can’t take some and leave some-Job 2:10b “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.” It’s all in the package.
Challenges make life interesting, but overcoming them makes life meaningful. Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance. Do not stop until it’s all over, quitting should not be an option at all. It’s ok to take a good break if you have to refuel. Hold on and move forward, looking unto Jesus Christ the Author and finisher of our Faith.
If you let God be your referee, you will never be ashamed, rather than be a quitter you will be a winner, and rather than be a victim you will be a victor. Don’t stop when God (your referee) has not blown the whistle.
See you at the finishing line
