Unleash Your Dreams and Bridle Your Fears...
Are you making disclaimers on life and possibilities? Are you prefacing your ideas or statements with a negative before the positive? "This is how it's always been...",
I'd like to, but...", "I'd like to see _____, but I will be content with_______.", "Its not my favorite, but you might like it.", "I'd love to live_____, but where I'm at is ok.", "This is just how I am."
These are only a few examples of how you may be unintentionally sabotaging God's Creative Design on your mind. We start off in life with endless dreams and possibilities and then we become champions at settling. We do it for a variety of reason. Some may include, fear of disappointment, painful past experiences, fear of failure, fear of what other people will react...does this sound at all like you? It can happen in any area of life. I see it in clients who have a goal weight loss, but struggle to believe it is possible so they give me what they will settle for-in that order. Or maybe they want to try an exercise but don't truly believe they are strong enough.
When I was younger I loved my home, but of coarse had closet dreams of a nicer one. I didn't dare unleash or speak these dreams until God began to pull my closet mentally apart at the seams. He literally dared me to desire more. God doesn't want us greedy or proud-but He does want us to understand that we are royalty. We are Sons and Daughters of a King! He wants better for your life.
Dare to believe!
"Blessed are those who put their trust in Him." Psalm 2:12
