Dreamer……don’t give up on your dreams.  On June 24, 2012, I posted “Want”.  Part of the post included an excerpt from my journal while I was at the beach earlier that summer.  My journal was me telling God what I wanted and how I thought it should work out.  The rest of the post was about me realizing that it wasn’t working out at all like I wanted.  It was painful.  I was where I didn’t want to be doing what I didn’t want to do.  But I knew He was preparing me and so I declared that I would keep dreaming and trusting.  

God has given me one of my dreams.  And it’s a better dream than I dreamed!  Yesterday I began doing exactly what I told Him I wanted to do:  “give me a great job…..that will use my strengths and combine all of the things I’m passionate about to help others.”  I started my job with Epic Church yesterday. 

The path to here was much different than I thought it would be.  The path prepared me, gave me confidence, made me stronger and wiser.  And I’m here!

Thank you, God, for knowing me better than I know myself.  Thank you for my dreams and preparing me for them.  Thank you for the courage to dream and the perseverance to stay on the path.  I can hardly wait to see what’s next!!
