I don’t know what dream you have in your heart, but I do know that chasing your dream is hard. There will be setbacks, rejection and many discouragements. It is difficult chasing your dream because dream chasing requires many steps of faith with no hint of light on the other side. It is like walking in the night; each step leading you in a direction, however, you aren’t one-hundred percent certain. Sometimes you step on some kid’s toys and sometimes it’s smooth sailing to your destination.

Every dream chaser imagines the end result, but I have become convinced that this cheapens the ride. The fact is we don’t know the end and frankly I don’t want to know. Faith is required when we don’t know the outcome.
Faith is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
Faith is required to have a relationship with God and it is also required to live a fulfilling life. Hope and faith are two things that need to be at the forefront of any dream chasing journey. Without these things we will stand on the sideline waiting for our luck to change. God has a plan for your life and you and I need to walk it out.
I get way too wrapped up in the how instead of just taking a step. How about you? What has helped me is something I heard from Les Brown. It’s the statement, “It’s possible.”
Your dream is possible! As long as you keep moving and keep trusting God for his plan in your life, it’s possible to see your dream come to fruition.
Trust God and keep moving as He may hinge your dream in a direction you were not expecting. If He does, it is a better dream than you could ever imagine. Have faith that Romans 8:28 is right, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Walk in His purpose taking steps of faith.
Hope and faith proceed any action, however, they are also increased by intentional action. When you head off toward your dream, life begins to look and feel differently. Your dream is possible. Get focused on the next step to make it a reality. Embrace and pursue your why with everything in you. It’s possible. Be blessed on your journey.
