Most of the time what we want is not what we need. God’s wisdom is not the same as man’s knowledge.
As a writer, I want to reach as many people as possible with the message of restoration and wholeness by allowing God into every part of our lives. I am sure that just like me, you have a message that many people need to hear. This is the rub in the beginning. We have a message to share and no one is listening. Often the gift of invisibility seems like anything but a gift. “Thanks God” is the last thing on my mind about the gift of invisibility. Instead it comes out like, “Why God?” or “What are you waiting for?”

If you are struggling with accepting the gift of invisibility, I pray this helps you. Here are 3 reasons to be excited about the gift of invisibility while chasing your dream.
1. Free to make mistakes. Often overlooked is the amount of pressure that being known causes. Your every move is magnified. Any lack of judgment is instantly known by the whole world. God is not punishing you and you are not a failure if you are not known. He is preparing you for the pressure that comes with being visible. Enjoy the moments of being visible to a small group of people. The size of your dream does not determine the value.
2. Remain humble. Remaining humble is one of my favorite things about not going instantly from zero to hero. When things happen quickly, it is too easy to take responsibility and get cocky about success. On the other hand, having a slow climb causes me to be aware that it is not me. It is God. The one that breathes the dream into you is the same one that will cause your dream to become a reality. Action is required on your part, however, remain humble when God moves the mountain.
3. Practice. The longer you are not known, the longer you get to practice your craft. If a million people would have hit my site on day one, I would not have been able to keep many people around. Now I would be able to speak to more of them and in a few years even more. Be grateful that you have time to practice. You will be better when your time comes. Be faithful at practicing your craft today and let it build.
Continue to do what you can now and don’t despise the small days, rather embrace them as a gift. One day you will miss these times. Be blessed on your journey.
