The Olympic Dream!
As the Olympic Games start I can just imagine how excited these athletes must be. How hard they have worked to get to this point! How much they have had to sacrifice to get to this point! I am sitting now and watching South Africa play soccer or football as they call it against Brazil and they are doing so well. I feel proud and I realize win or lose they have all worked hard to get to where they are.
It kind of works the same with everything else in life. If you have a dream, if you are good at something, you have to work hard at it to get where you want to go. Yes it takes dedication and yes it takes falling, maybe more than once but if you get up and try again and again until you succeed then you have to get to a point where you make it to the Olympic Games of your life!
We have to see our dream, recognize it and acknowledge it, and then decide if we want to make it a goal or not. Once you decide to chase after your dreams you can be sure that it won’t be easy, you will have days where you just want to give up and run away, but when you arrive at the beautiful stadium and opening evening of the grand opening your heart will burn of joy just like the Olympic fire burns every 4 years!
Usually dreams of the heart is from God and God puts those desires in our hearts because He has something amazing planned. We can’t always see the bigger picture or the end result but it is usually much better than what we could ever imagine. It’s like thinking you are baking a chocolate cake but when it comes out and you cut that first slice, it’s actually a carrot cake or a creamy cheesecake with fresh strawberries on top! His plan is always better than our plan but His plan always starts with a dream in your heart. A seed planted by God Himself. If we allow Him, He will water it and trim it, He will look after the plant and nurture it, all we need to do is have faith and trust in the Lord always for His plan to come alive within us through Him!
If God is the core of any dream, that dream can become a reality! Find your dream and make it your life, but remember for best results we need God. The easy way is not always the right way and the quick way mostly has consequences that makes the process take longer. Gods way is the perfect way, with results that our minds cannot comprehend until we get there!
Happy dreaming ❤️
