Hope For Today! July 7

Dream Big! Our God is Bigger!

Moments of Hope!

God is saying to you today…

I know you feel tired and stressed.

But know I have your back.

I’m going to send you a blessing to remind you that I am always in your corner.

I went onto Facebook while I was on the elliptical and Cheryl, my friend, posted the above saying in Less Stress 2 Success. Just minutes before I got an incoming call on my cell phone as I was doing my devotions and it was Judith from Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas from the Freedom Friday group asking me if I got the invitation to join on Friday nights and get a mentor. We started to talk and she asked if I wanted her to pray with me. I said I would love that and continued to share that tomorrow I’m having my first book signing at Mission Syracuse at Destiny USA and sharing my testimony at 2:00pm. We prayed together and God knew I needed that call from her. It was like an Angel from above. We talked for 30 minutes and it was exactly what I needed. 

What is going to be the story of your life?  

One day you’re going to wake up on your  birthday, 20 years from now and when you look back over your life, will you smile at what you see? Or are you going to wish you hadn’t stopped dreaming somewhere along the way?  Paint a vivid picture of your life with no improvement or growth beyond today.  Whatever remorse there might be, let it be the driving force for what could be.  Don’t allow fear to stop you in my tracks.  Think about what your life would look like if you didn’t step out and go after your dreams. In other words, if you stay exactly where you are, what would your life look like 10 years later?

You might be at a wonderful place in your life feeling blessed but knowing God has so much more for you if you just step out of your comfort zone and believe in yourself and your God-Given abilities.  Are you growing or stretching yourself out of your comfort zone. The bottom line is you know God has more for your life but are you allowing your own insecurities to stop you?

Will you step boldly out of your comfort zone, face your fears and live out your destiny. That picture has fueled me to never let it become reality, I challenge you to invest the time to sit quietly with yourself and Dream Big! write out a  description of your day-to-day life. Believe if you do this then this will happen and that will happen and so on. And do you know what?  You will hit roadblocks along the way and that’s what builds character in us an refines us to be the strong and resilient people we are. Someone asked me recently, well what if your dreams don’t happen I said, “It is better to have tried then to never have tried at all.”  When I’m not Dreaming Big! I have realized I’m usually depressed and not contributing to society at all.  I’m just going through the motions and living behind a mask again.  All my great achievements in life I have believed in myself. I think that’s the biggest gift I got from writing my book is the freedom to be myself and to share my struggles now instead of retreating back into depression.   I’m pushing through it right now I think so it will help others to know that we all have days that are not as great as other days but that doesn’t mean that tomorrow has to be the same. During these last few days I have spent a lot of time with God in His Word and prayer trying to hear His voice for direction. My hearts desire is to give hope to the hurting but succeeding at being bipolar and living with depression I believe is my focal point. The Dream Big! Our God Is Bigger! Institute has been in my heart for over 20+ years because of wanting to give Hope to those being diagnosed with mental illness and how horrible the in-patient and out-patient facilities are. They do not give you Hope. Being diagnosed with mental illness is hard enough but if you don’t have a good support system, like I did, it does not give you much Hope at all. It take one person to see the vision in the Dream Big! Our God is Bigger! Institute and this God-Given Dream and God can do anything! Below is taken from my book, a letter written to myself dated 2/3/23.

Imagine it 10 years from right now if you don’t adapt daily successful habits and step into what God has for you. The good news is, it’s not 10 years from now. It’s only today, and you get to choose how you want to be remembered and what you’re going to do with the rest of your life.

When you write the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.  

“Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, that he may run who readeth it. 

Habakkuk 2:2
