What it means to dream big?

In this complex, fast paced and rat race world, it seems impossible to pursue our dreams and aspirations.  No doubt life journeys are full of challenges. However, time and time again, there is always a story, a testimony of someone we know or read who overcame life obstacles and fulfilled his/ her dreams. 

Most of the time, their stories will leave us with a sense of hope and encouragement to go ahead and continue our personal journey in pursuing our dreams.  It is stories like these that we realized what is seemingly impossible are in fact possible for us to attain.  

I think that these moments are Godly orchestrated to cheer us on. I like to resemble that to running a race – you feel like every muscle fiber in your legs is close to failing you, you are making terrible gasping and wheezing sounds as your lungs expand at every pace and your throat is craving for that small cup of refresher.  Yet when you see the people on the side cheering, the runners ahead of you pressing forward and the gratifying thought of reaching the finishing line - you cannot help but be motivated to carry on.

“A dream is an inspiring picture of the future that energizes your mind, will and emotions, empowering you to do everything you can to achieve it.” - John Maxwell

I am glad to know that God is a dream maker and He has intended for us to live purposefully and passionately, doing exactly what He created us to do. 

Life is certainly full of challenges and victories, triumphs and failures, disappointments and joy but trust that you are more than your situations. Because you see, God has given each of us a capacity to dream and more importantly to dream with Him.

So what it means to dream big? 

BIG - To be Bold to pursue your dreams, to be constantly Inspired to press on and to know that God desires for you to live a satisfying live.

“For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” - Jeremiah 29:11
