Why Follow Your Dreams When Life Is Full Of Disappointment

As a little girl, my heart would say “follow your dreams.” I had so many dreams I wanted to follow, but just as many disappointments. Often I wondered how different life would have been if I was not raised in a foster home.

Don’t get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the foster home, it just was not a home with my parents. It was not, until that magical day when my mother arrived and said: “I am taking you home with me.”

I learned that home is not necessarily where your parents are, but where your heart is.

Being at home with my parents did not change the condition of my heart, it only changed my residence. I found safety and security in both places most of the time. But I was still a prisoner of my own mind. One of the first principles I learned, in order to escape from being a prisoner of my mind was to “let go and let God”

Once I lined up my thinking with God’s word, everything began to change for me.

No longer did my struggles in life, hold me back from who God destines for me to be. I am reaching higher heights every day. Giving God the glory every step of the way. I have found as long as I keep my eyes on Jesus there was nothing to impossible for Him to do.

I gave birth to a special needs son that has Down Syndrome, before he was born I had big dreams and aspirations that I had planned to achieve. After giving birth I laid my dream down.

To God be the glory, I am moving forward with a special needs child.

I have learned, if you want something bad enough there is nothing that can stop you from getting it. So don’t allow life’s situations stop you from following your dreams.

If  I am doing it, so can you. “You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you”

Tell me what have you dreamed about doing in your life? What is keeping you from doing it?
