The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
We are born with dreams, ambitions, and goals, and each one of us are capable of achieving them. It takes dedication, hard work, and focus to reach your goals, but never believe that they are out of your reach. No dream or goal is beyond you, and we don’t fail when we don’t reach them. We have to understand that where we create the plan or idea, God directs our path towards it. The path is not always instant, or straight. It can often take a lifetime, and can be full of pitfalls and potholes. How do we reach our ultimate destination, is by working hard and praying faithfully. There is nothing greater than the direction of God, and the work that we put in.
This week, when you get discouraged, remember to stop and pray. Have that faith of a mustard seed and figure out a way to push through the trials, letdowns, and setbacks. Always remember that setbacks, are only setups to step forward.
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
