“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is like a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” Robert Frost

The beauty of a dream is one of the greatest gifts ever given to man. Dreams rest in the place of our heart where we can envision the incredible and imagine the impossible.

By dreaming we can create something out of nothing and in pursuing our dreams our hopes can become a reality. Someone once said ‘let your dream devour your life, not your life devour your dream.’ Today it’s so easy to get distracted by the everyday currents of life and lose focus of our dreams. We often get so busy trying to stay afloat that can we lose sight of our original destination and get carried away by life’s resolute waves. But yet hope still remains.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
Eleanor Roosevelt

As we enter a new year, I want to encourage you to reignite the fire in your heart that once was. And if it’s already on fire add more fuel to the flame. You see wherever there’s any dream of virtue it will be attacked and if we’re not aware, our guards go down and the way of perseverance comes to a halt. God has put in each of us something so special that if we dare to pursue our dreams we will literally astound ourselves. “Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.Ralph Waldo Emerson We have to clinch on to our dreams and wrestle for our futures. Our dreams are not only a blessing to us but to the world, and the prize has to be won.

“Self-esteem must be earned! When you dare to dream, dare to follow that dream, dare to suffer through the pain, sacrifice, self-doubts, and friction from the world, you will genuinely impress yourself.” Dr. Laura Schlessinger

In pursuing your dreams you will come against temptation, regret, trials and adversity. But with the prize comes honour, mercy, peace and joy – the blessings of a virtuous dream. Be patient with your dream but pursue it steadfastly.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams, and endeavors to lead a life which they have imagined, they will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”Henry David Thoreau

Let this coming year be a year of progress. No matter how frustrated or weary you are please don’t give up. Realign your strategy and move with focus and vigor. My prayer is that God will be your guide.

God bless and protect


Quote of the week:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”Mark Twain
