Dreamers

I feel a surge of power to empower dreams, arouse gifts, harness potential, mold lives and cause a people to march into their destiny. Thy kingdom come, they will be done on earth in our lives as it is in heaven. I am determined to see you happening. I believe these few words and questions will be life changing.

"Wisdom is the principle thing: therefore; get wisdom and in all your getting, get understanding" Proverbs 4:7

I love these words from the wisest man that ever walked on the face of the earth and did practically get the wisdom even in the things he made mistakes he pulled out wisdom and warned us in so many ways and in this scripture he gives us an open call to step out and get wisdom and understanding. There is practically no dream that can be accomplished without wisdom and understanding and in this light let’s begin.

I am an artist so seeing comes naturally to me after so many years of using observation in drawing and painting. I have a passion to create and that drives me to perceive deeper than what meets the eye and leaning on that I love to dream big and I see a sea of potential in people so during the past year I have been asking my close friends to tell me their wildest dreams and some of them I asked for one dream that they could say was the biggest dream that they have; to others I asked for the one thing they could do exceptionally well if they had everything they needed and knew that they would not fail and what it would take to attempt doing something big without fear; just doing it for fun because that is what they love to do. The out come was amazing.

I also asked them to pick a favorite sport that they love and they can play or choose to work out in order to make their bodies fit for that sport like their favorite star in that particular sport. I told them to make that sport a model for their personal game of life. That too was outstanding. From this back drop I had to ask myself the same questions and I am asking you to ask yourself the same questions.
• What is my biggest dream?
• What is my favorite sport and why? What does it take to play this sport?
• What can I attempt to do if I knew I wouldn’t fail?
• What does it take to make your body fit if your choice of sport is (e.g. Tennis)
• What is the mental challenge I have? (education more or less, beliefs, etc)
• How is my internal dialogue? (positive, or negative, faith, doubt)
• What is stopping me from living my dream?
• What can I do to change the course of events starting from now? What will it take for me to play my game of life?

I am sure you need some time to answer those questions one of my friends took three days to answer two questions, “What is your biggest dream? What is your favorite sport?” I think if you just answer these questions you will do well. My brother said these questions are tough to answer but we did really well and now when I give my friends gifts and when I do a follow up on them I remind them their biggest dream as they keep on working on their goals. The idea is taking action and accountability and in the next post I will tell you why?

Confidence

Confidence in God, self and in the dreams you hold
A sense of assurance that will not go away
A knowing that the Master has your back in spite of
In that confidence you stand and you believe
That what he has began he will finish because it is good

You deny to be denied and you cut against the grain
In the perfect calmness that he is so near
You feel his Spirit breathing on you
Whirling up a well of strength
Stirring your confidence; letting you know you can't fail
Neither can you fall because he won't let you
A cooling stream of peace tells you he will do it again
One more time he will come through for you
And you stand with an uncompromising conviction
Persuaded that there is no other out-come
But the victory that you see and embrace with confidence

walk in victory

I walk in victory,
I smile and laugh at the roar of sadness
My inner person understands
I am more than what meets the eye
I am this and so much more
Love joy and peace have won my heart
Thus I am not moved by this thorn in my flesh
Because I know I have a future and a hope
I will see tomorrow with newness and great expectations
My hope shall not be deffered
I walk in victory. I am the face of a winner.
