Here you are, trying to follow your dreams and it begins. The chorus singing at the top of their lungs trying to stomp out the embers of the fire that make up your dreams. Those well-meaning (at least we hope) family or friends gifted with discouragement and negativity. We’ve all had them, we have all felt the stings of their words and or attitudes. We have all heard “You can never do that” or “you’ll never amount to that” “You’re not good enough”.
The condescending you are too young, too old, too fat, too thin, too tall, too short, not beautiful enough, too pretty (I seriously heard this before), you are too stupid, too smart, not cool enough, wear funny clothes (Hey, I like my clothes!). Those that take your dreams and say they are not good enough, take your vision and snort in derision.
I’ll Tell You The Truth
Follow Your Dreams – They Don’t Know You As He Does
Follow Your Dreams – Who Will You Listen To?
Follow Your Dreams – Don’t Carry Their Baggage
I almost pity those nay-Sayers, because they are missing out on God’s plan for their lives. So pray for them and move on. Don’t carry their baggage with you, drop it and move on because it’s hard to run holding a bunch of suitcases right?
Run toward those righteous dreams that God has put in your heart. Because no matter what, the one person that matters will be with you (Judges 6:16 The Lord answered, “I will be with you,”)
Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
