For many years, I kept a dream packed up neatly. From time to time, I’d dust off the dream box and look inside only to repack it. I did that for more than two decades. I finally got the courage to unpack and walk out my dream a couple of years ago. This blog is a piece of the dream coming into manifestation.
I have other dreams, too. Although none of them have been packed up as long as the one I hid away for 20+ years. This is the year for me to unpack each and every dream. In 2016, I am making the most of every opportunity that comes my way. I am preparing for opportunities before they come my way. That’s different. I’m not going to waste another year sitting on my dreams out of dear or intimidation. Enough.
I am going to redeem the time like never before. Why not? It’s wise to do so. God meets us where we are, but He can only work to the extent of our faith. And part of faith is putting works behind it to demonstrate that we believe and hope and have confidence that God will do precisely what He said He would do. He is never slack concerning His promises for His Children—I owe it to Him not to be slack in being ready to receive what I’ve asked of Him.
So I am making the vision plain on tablets, and running forward with the dreams in my hands. They are unpacked, and hanging like banners for God to see that I am ready. And I am not wasting my time with busy work, making needless to-do lists that only give me a false sense of progress. Nope. I am opening checking accounts, completing patent paperwork, purchasing equipment, seeking investors, and I am speaking each dream into existence.
I can’t repack them, not now. I am determined to live #AFearlessLife this year, and each year to come.
It’s NOW time!!!
