The truth about dreams is that they belong to the individual not anyone else. You can share them or keep them private. A dream deferred is not a denied. Just as your thoughts and opinions are valid, so are your dreams. Everything about us is valid. We’re created in the image and likeness of Almighty God. Know your worth as you follow, serve and love Him.We can count the seeds in an apple, but only God knows how many apples are in seed.
Today, and everyday, I hope that you are considering the possibilities. I know there are days when life wears you down or drains you. But try to focus on the victories, too.
Victory in Defeat ( by Edwin Markham)
Defeat may serve as well as victory
To shake the soul and let the glory out.
When the great oak is straining in the wind.
The boughs drink in new beauty, and the trunk
sends down a deeper root on the windward side.
Only the soul that knows the mighty grief
Can know the mighty rapture. Sorrows come
To stretch out spaces in the heart for joy.
Today is a gift. There are possibilities for validation, reassurance, comfort. If no one is affirming you, read something that helps you. Pray. Reach out. Things can seem bleak some days. Believe anyway.
