Pursuing your Dreams

I had this whole heart felt post to go along with these quotes. I sat here and stared at it and decided that the quotes are encouraging enough all on their own. To conclude: Don't give up on yourself! You are stronger than you realize and can accomplish more than you know if you set your mind to it. You will have good days and bad. You will get discouraged and you might fall from time to time but, get back up again and again and again. You'll get there!! Just keep chugging friends, just keep chugging!

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Colossians 3:23

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew {their} strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; {and} they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

As long as you're actively pursuing your dream with a practical plan, you're still achieving, even if it feels as though you're going nowhere fast. It's been my experience that at the very moment I feel like giving up, I'm only one step from a breakthrough. Hang on long enough and circumstances will change, too.
