I believe that when it comes to dreams and what we want to do with our lives, the idea
of surrendering those dreams to anyone is an awful thought. Sometimes people
have regrets because they feel like they have let go of their dreams in order to do something
else they didn't necessarily want to do with our life.
This quote by Joseph Campbell reminded me of how amazing it is that
God is the one person who we can fully give every bit of our lives to... we can let
go of our own dreams, in a sense, because we can have faith that whatever
we have to give up will surely be replaced with something SO much better that he
has planned for us!
This is something that is a huge part of my faith and something I don't forget,
but a reminder of it gives me such a feeling of comfort and warmth inside,
to know in my heart that God always has something waiting for us that
is better than anything we could achieve in our lives without him working.
He even says "For I know the plans I have for you" (Jeremiah 29:11), and how amazing to
know our Creator's promise that he has known the plan for each of our lives before
we were even born and will carry it out!
Remember that when things feel like they are falling apart or our
circumstances force us to change our plans or let go of a dream we have for
awhile, the Lord is always at work in your life.
I hope you have a blessed and wonderful weekend!!
