This expression was given by Jesus after telling his disciples that is was easier to pass a camel through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of God, so they asked, who then could be saved? Jesus pressed on to say and assured that our reward would be great in this life and the one to come. But this expression states a powerful truth. Everything is possible with God.
Dreams, inspiration, restoration, influence, provision, and many more themes are those that have defined my life and perhaps yours. Very bright and clear moments and many dark and dull days. I will not say that my experience is better or worse than yours. To me, the dark days where very dark and the bright ones were very bright. But it was those moments in which I was pressed more that defined how I think and how I live.
In many ways our lives are the same; yours and mine. We want to dream and we want to be inspired. Dream bigger things and be inspired to pursue and live those dreams. Dreams bigger than ourselves, and bigger than life! And then to all us, life happens. And we kill our dreams in the name of reality, as we often call it. But what really has happened is that life has hurt us and has stung us. We have been stung with the venom of fear and we don’t have or can’t find the antidote. Fear is irrational, it’s paralyzing and it’s demeaning. It makes you do and not do things at the same time. It makes you run away from your destiny making safe decisions that will not inflict any more fear or hurt and in doing so it also makes you not do what you were born to be.
Dreaming will open the door for possibilities. It will open the doors of your heart in ways that will make you vulnerable. And we don’t like to feel that way. We want to feel in control. And if we are open enough, we would agree with one simple truth: control is an illusion we have created to shield our fear.
I will admit it, dreaming is not safe. But dreaming is in all of us, and you have to admit that.Is it possible to dream and to live inspired in spite of everything? I believe so. I know so, I have lived my life that way. And while I say that, I will tell you that the experiences I mentioned before have crafted the story of my life and I believe yours too, in a way that will awaken the dreams for a better life and the inspiration to walk through the dark and dull moments and the renewed dreams for the bright and clear ones. They have been birthed in many ways and in many of those moments I mentioned. Pressing moments.
Everything can be taken away from you, but not your dreams. I trust you will find the inspiration to achieve them. Dream and be inspired; thus the word Dreamspired! These are powerful words, not because I wrote them, but because they come from the source of all things, God Almighty himself. His word is powerful and changes our lives, even when we won’t admit it at times. Your vision should never be limited to who you are or what you think you can do. So be prepared to dream and to be inspired. Jesus said it and affirmed it, Everything is possible with God.
Think big, think higher, Live Dreamspired!
