Proverbs 18:16 says “A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.”
When there’s a dream inside of you, there is no better feeling in the world than to live it out! It’s scary. It’s even uncertain and of course there will be mistrials along the way, but at the end of the day when God has inspired that dream in you, that very dream is waiting to come to fruition!
It is so important to get the dream out of you. It starts off in a hidden, seed-like form and the moment that you write it down, verbalize it, pray on it, speak it to someone, it comes to life! You have breathed life and possibility into it. If you make a step towards your dream, it begins the process of momentum. That’s the beautiful part of it, it will continue to move along with you if you move with it!
Your gift will make room for you! Your gift is uniquely your own and no one can perfect it like you can! That gift that you sit on will put you before great men.
I had a dream to interview people and share stories. I sat on that idea for several years and it was stagnant because of it. I remember the first time that I spoke it out of my mouth and shared the idea. It was exciting and I got a rush just from talking about it. Unfortunately I didn’t move on it still for quite some time. It wasn’t until last year in October of 2013 that I actually decided that I was going to move on my dream. Once I stepped out on faith, doors began to open up for me. My gift began to make room for me and it started to come alive.
I still have a long journey ahead, but I’m already experiencing the great benefits to living my dream out loud! I hope the same for you too!
