Despite the odds

I had an idea to start a blog before I got sick. Really, I had come up with a lot of ideas for my life – start a blog, write a book, write a movie… along with pastoring a church and going around speaking publicly. I had all these ideas. And now when I look at my life and circumstances, I sometimes wonder if they are still dreams to have.

Will you continue to hold onto your dreams when it gets tough?

I don’t let my sickness hold back the plans I have for myself. And I don’t let my condition hold back the plans God has for me either. I know a lot of people would have stopped after the diagnosis. I keep going.

How? I think it’s a combination of two things. It’s the faith to wait on God and then the courage to believe in what He has said. You might miss your opportunity if you don’t have the courage to believe, despite the odds; despite what it looks like.

Even if you are lacking in some way or another, all is not lost. While we may not know our limits, God does. We may think that we don’t have enough courage or faith. But what God knows is that we may have just enough to get us to the place He has for us.

    That’s good stuff. This just gave me the push I needed to keeping pushing forward despite my failures, despite my shortcomings, and despite where I’m weak. Despite what it looks like or how long it takes, I will do what God has for me and go after my dreams!! Thx BB!!!
