I have dream to be a writer…but I gave it away.
I have a dream to be a speaker…but I gave it away.
I have a dream to be a leader of women…but I gave it away.
I have a dream of being an amazing wife…but I gave it away.
I have a dream of being an awesome mom…but I gave it away.
Why did I give these dreams away?
I didn’t give these dreams away because of distractions or obstacles or being too busy. I didn’t throw them in the garbage or disregard them with a casual attitude. I didn’t get bogged down with “why me”.
I gave them to the One who can actually make them happen. I gave them to the One who will make them perfect. I gave them to the One who knows me and all my strengths and weaknesses better than I do.
Most importantly, I gave them away because I want God to be in charge of the outcome of my life.
I know there will be times when I try to take them back. Times when I try and take control of my path or try and force something that should not happen. But I trust God to bring me back to this place of surrendering my hopes, dreams and desires to Him.
