Failure has been a constant friend of mine, a friend because I’ve learned to appreciate and embrace it. My attempt at pursuing my dream and building something has brought along many valuable lessons that are leading me to Gods best through trial and error.
And here’s the thing, I’m not ready to quit! All the failures have only added to my strength and desire to dream bigger. Because His goodness always comes out of disappointments and unfulfilled dreams as we keep our sight on Jesus.
Throughout the years I’ve had a dream of building my own small business and it has led me to embark onto different business adventures that have ended in, you guessed it. Failure. But the lessons have been valuable to this dream of mine including self growth. And if I could be completely transparent here, they have led to failure because I didn’t fully commit to my own success. Giving it half my time and half my energy isn’t going to bring the results I so dearly dream and pray for without putting it into action.
Prayers require action, even in the stillness of hearing God.
Which brings me to take another leap of faith and embark on a new adventure…again! YES again. Because God isn’t done with me yet! And guess what? He isn’t done with you either! He never will be, till we meet Him face to face.
Never loose sight of those dreams especially through the ordinary, routine days. He’s aligning your dreams to His during those days. Trust Him. He will show up. He will give you the deepest desires of your heart.
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
As you dig into your own dreams (because we all have them) I will follow up with a second post in the next few weeks to share the root that’s sprouting in my heart!
