When Dreams Don't Come True
Thursday, 19 March 2015 15:55
I was thinking today about what do you do when your dreams don't come true? I don't mean little things, I mean things you have hoped for, when even years go by and you are left with no fulfillment of those desires or hopes.
What do you do then?
There is really only one thing to do: give your loss, your grief, your pain to the God who loves you most and let Him work in your life. Let Him heal your heart. Let Him teach you. Let Him take you on His path: the one that's best for you.
Truly, we must never let the things we hope for become more important than our relationship with God. We must remember, when God says, "no", we must still believe, more than ever before, that He has reasons.
What might those reasons be?
First, the object of our desires or hopes was never in His plan for us. Sometimes we have a tendency to plan our own way and in doing so are drawn away from God's perfect plan. We are deceived into believieving that our way is the best way. We must seek Him first and let Him take us where He wants us to go.
Second, we must believe that God has what's best for us in His heart. Satan always places counterfeits in our way to take us off course and get us obsessed with things or people that were never meant for us. They may have been a good thing but not a “God thing” for us. We must make the decision to believe that even if what we want doesn't happen, God's perfect will must take first place. We are either going God's way or the wrong way.
When we seem to lose out on what we want most in life we should hold onto our faith in God and that He will give us what is best for us in the long run.
God loves us enough to not give us what we want when that is not the best thing for us.
We must believe God is working out a better plan for us even when we don't see it. All things will work out for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose. We must believe that! Serving Him must be most important to us.
By seeking Him first, we can find the right path in life: the path that will fulfill our desires and hopes beyond anything we could have done on our own.
When we seem to have lost all we had hoped for, in that darkest of hours, God's Son begins to rise in our lives to rebuild our hopes and our faith in the light of His glorious Love.
Hold on and watch Him work. Your victory is right around the corner. Never give up. Just believe.
