Dream Big

Mijos – You’ve heard me say it a lot during your life – it doesn’t cost anything to dream. Well, I want you to know that you should also dream big. Dream like tomorrow you’ll be a NASCAR driver – like you’ll fly to the moon – or Mars, with my buddy Elon. Or, you’ll make a difference in someone’s life, because you’ll teach them to read for the first time in their entire life. Or you’ll build a well that will sustain the life of a rural village in Africa. You’ll be in the Olympics; a 6th grade teacher, a police officer. Or, you’ll race motorcycles on the raceway. Or you’ll knit marvelous garments that are extraordinarily beautiful. Or perhaps one day, you’ll follow in my footsteps.

Don’t let the world tell you no. Don’t give up because it’s hard. If you were meant to do it, you will, with God’s help – because that will have been his plan for you. “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” My hope is that one day, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for; what you’ve dreamed about. But do so with God – because nothing in this world is worth doing without His word filling your sails; leading you on the way!

Know that life will be hard. You’ll be hurt. Lots of times. Physically, mentally, spiritually. You’ll hit a dead end, and you’ll wonder where up is at. It’s on your knees in prayer, Mijos! Run to Him, and He will show you the way. My prayer is that your prayers will be like a stream of water throughout your life; much like the stream needs the water, and the tree needs the earth – you need God! The best part about His love for you, is that it’s better than my own. Like the story of the prodigal son – the one who took his inheritance and squandered it all, who came back to his father without anything, but then was given everything – God is always there for you, no matter what. You need only see He is there with you, ALWAYS.
