Challenge: Follow your dream

I was at a Women of Faith Conference last year ago, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.  The theme of the conference was BELIEVE.

Simply: Believe.

And when I think of the word “believe”, a flood of thoughts come pouring through my mind.  You often hear motivational-speakers or motivational coaches say:  Believe in the impossible,

Believe you have it in you!

Believe and you will achieve!

Believe to reach that goal, dream, ambition or position in life.

And while these self-motivating phrases may be good and even noteworthy; WITHOUT Christ as the center of your dreams, goals or ambitions- what profit is it!!

Mark 8:36 reads

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

Matthew 16:26,   “…Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

Nothing.

And when we look around we see very many successful and famous people of the world, but so many giants and leaders for Christ!

And I believe Jesus wants us to dream and go far in reaching great heights for Him.  And I believe He wants us to do it as unto Him.

Are you dreaming? Good.

But who is at the center of your dreams?

 

Romans 3:23, 1 John 1:9 and Romans 10:9
