Plans for the Future

Have you ever thought of what you want to be when you grow up?  Or the beautiful things that you want to accomplish?  Your dreams that reach past the clouds, your goals that are set in your heart? 

~I have many dreams...but I also have goals.  Goals are simply, 'dreams that are being acted upon.'  Some dreams that I've typed out on paper and posted on my closet door in the past, like: 'I want to be married and have lots of kids by age 30', actually, I'd like to have 8 or 9 children, that is, a wistful thought and lovely dream.  And another dream that I have set into my heart is one that I pray almost daily to the Lord to make a reality, 'that God would use my books that I write to change hearts...even if I never make a penny from them.' 

My dream of being an author that actually changes hearts for Jesus Christ, is one of my ultimate goals and dreams.  The one of being married with children...is more a wistful wish. 

You see, I don't know if God wants me to marry...but I KNOW with ALL my soul and mind that He wants me to write.  He's given me that ability to write books, and I want to use that for Him.  Would getting married be nice?  Certainly.  But its NOT my end goal, and its certainly fine if God tells me to stay single all my life...there's ups and downs to both, but since Jesus is my lover and friend better than anyone else, does it truly matter what He has in store for me? 

I encourage you to follow your dreams...but ONLY the dreams that He has for you.  Sometimes it might hurt, sometimes He asks you to give your dreams to Him and let Him handle them for His glory...
but trust Him. 
Its going to be all right.

Please ask yourself every time before you post if it honors Jesus.
I know if your doing that then your heart wants to please Him!
