God wants us to dream and dream big!
By Jessica Dixon
God has a greater plan for us than we have for ourselves.
When you were younger what did you dream of becoming?
As you get older you begin to realize God has given you many talents, all of them to be used for His glory.
All my life I have absolutely been terrified to go near a stove, the microwave was it for me because I was so scared of getting burnt.
One day after finishing my my morning prayers with God, I felt a tug at my heart, today was going to be the first day I was going to attempt to cook.
So I prayed about it, got up and first thing I cooked was chicken, because I don’t eat beef or pork.
My family still finds it hard to believe how good of a cook I am, now that I am doing it.
I love it so much and realize, that right there was a gift from God! I was wasting it… now I cook almost everyday.
What is something that you have never tried because you’re afraid?
Do not let your fears hold you back from using the gifts God has given you.
I have a lot to learn as my mom and husband teach me more each day. I know that I can become the cook that I want to be and with a lot of practice, I will get there. Until then, I will not let my fears hold me back.
There are a lot more things I hope to accomplish, and know that with God’s grace I will get there.
God wants us to dream and dream big. He can help us in each and every step we make . As you begin each day, talk to God and ask Him to give you the courage to try something new, whatever it may be.
Know that God has placed that gift in you and nothing is too hard for God.
