Dream Beyond Your Means
Forgetting about fear when you are going against something big seems impossible. What you want out of life and what you are destined to be is typically on the opposite side of fear. This month, school has begun, and you are settled into the cycle. My note to those in school is this, do not get stagnant.
Do not settle for good, but go for great. Work harder, and set even more goals for yourself. I am from Dallas, TX and my home church, before I moved to LA, was The Potter’s House headed by Bishop T.D. Jakes. Last month, I was able to visit The Potter’s House Los Angeles a couple times. The very ﬁrst time I visited the church, the message that week was presented by Director/Producer/Screenwriter Michael Elliot, and some key points that I was able to take in on that particular Sunday was that the odds do not matter to God.
It does not matter if your goals are long shots and pipe dreams to other people, the odds are always in your favor when it comes to Christ.
The second time I attended The Potters House in Los Angeles, Bishop T.D. Jakes was there to speak and I was so excited! I had not seen him preach live in six years. I must admit that I was a bit emotional. The title of the message was “Get Up and Eat.” It is imperative to feed the King in you, and starve the kid in you, that is pleading for what you want and not what you need. We can get caught up in feeding our past, and not feeding our future. I was so encouraged and felt unstoppable. There is nothing wrong with feeling that way. God wants us to feel that way about our life in Him. Ambition can be considered something dirty and not embraced in a lot of communities, especially for women.
As a woman, I think that the time for settling is over. Drive, passion, and courage should be praised not silenced. This month, do not be afraid to dream beyond your means. If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough, and if you believe that you can turn them into a reality on your own, without the help of God, then you are sadly mistaken.
