Ignite the Power Within Step 5: How Faith Helps Your Realize Your Dreams

As the song from Mama Mia goes, "I have a dream, a song to sing." We all have a dream, don't we? Dreams come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Some dream big dreams like becoming president, CEO, or making it to the Olympic team.

Your dream might be to own your own home, learn to fly a plane, ride a motorcycle, ballroom dance. Or maybe write that book you've always wanted to write or own your own business.

Life is made of dreams. Dreams make life worth living because they give us something to live for and something to get excited about. They put the passion and spice into life.

What is it that you dream of doing, having, becoming? Have you forgotten or given up on it? You're never too old and it's never too late to dream a new dream. Don't let anyone discourage you. It is truly possible to live the life of your dreams at any stage of life.

Begin by taking the first step. Then another and another. You will be amazed at how doors open and your dream will become a reality sooner than you think. Don't make excuses such as "I'm too old," "I'll never get married," or "I'm not smart enough". Faith opens doors and makes the path clear for God to work. Believe in yourself and in the power of God. Together you will go further than you ever imagined.

I speak from personal experience because many of my dreams have come true already and I am in awe of what God has done in and through me.

Who would have thought that a timid, overweight child of an alchoholic father would graduate from the prestigious Johns Hopkins University with a Masters degree? Who would have thought that this same person would survive an abusive marriage, a devastating divorce and financial ruin? Who would have dreamed of being an author and go on to write and publish a book and create her own blog? Who would have thought that I would have visited the many countries I've been to? Who would have thought that a single mom would be able to see her two sons graduate from college and one earn his Masters Degree? Who would have thought a single mom would be able to sponsor a child in a third-world country all the way through college?

These are truly dreams - miracles really- that have come true. All by the grace of God and with the power of Faith. When we believe we give God permission to work in our lives. What's even more exciting is that when we begin to believe and see the smaller dreams come to fruition, we will be even more motivated to dream bigger dreams the next time. As they say "the sky is the limit". Dare to dream big!
