"For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls,
and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared with it." Proverbs 8:11 Amplified

Robert Greenleaf has said, "Nothing much happens without a dream. For something really great to happen, it takes a really great dream."

I hope you have a great dream, one that you don’t want to tell your friends or family because you’re afraid they will laugh at you. God gives crazy, ridiculous (to the world) dreams and visions. He calls us to greatness for His glory.

Throw off the restraints and shackles and press for that dream. What will it take? Only you know because your dream is different from my dream, but every dream takes work. What are you willing to sacrifice to grab onto and hold onto the thing that God wants you to do?

Myles Monroe said, “You will never be fulfilled until you understand why God made you. You will only walk around confused, thinking, ‘There’s gotta be more. There’s gotta be more.’” Have you thought that? I have.

You know that desire you have deep inside you, that ache to do something about something? That just may be what you are on this earth for. Write it down.

"Write my answer on a billboard, large and clear, so that anyone can read it at a glance and rush to tell the others. But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” Habakkuk 2:2-3 TLB

Once you have that dream/vision written down the next step is to run with it. “A life frittered away disgusts God; he loves those who run straight for the finish line.” Proverbs 15:9 Message Bible

No detours my friend, run straight for the finish line. You may have some hurdles to jump over and you many need to build up your strength gradually but as long as you keep moving you are making progress toward your dream.

Nice analogy! Or as we put it on the trails: Perpetual forward motion.. it'll get you there every time.
