5 Practical Tips to Realizing Your Dream

You said YES to the dream God placed in your heart. You might ask, “Now what?” It can be scary to take the first step, so here are 5 practical tips to achieving your dream.

Pray

Pray without ceasing. – 1 Thessalonians 5:17 ESV

First, seeking God’s voice through prayer has to be at the center of your dream journey. God is the source of creativity, vision, and everything that is good, including the dream He placed in your heart. 

Friend, when God made us in His image, He included that same creativity. We can be creative and dream big dreams because His spirit is within us. Have a conversation and brainstorm with God about where to start first. God didn’t give you this dream to send you off alone. Invite Him into the process by asking what He thinks!

As I began my dream, there were days when I felt crystal clear about my focus, but I noticed there were times when I felt confused. When those times came, I pressed in, prayed again, and sure enough God would open my eyes and remind me of the goal. Press in at every stage.

Start Now: The Endless Possibilities of Dreaming

Start Now: The Endless Possibilities of Dreaming

I am excited to announce that I am a new member of the God Sized Dreams writing team! Not familiar with God Sized Dreams? It is an incredible blog shared twice a week dedicated to encouraging anyone who has a dream on their heart, and is looking for a supportive community! No dream is to too big or too small. Needless to say, I am honored to be one of the newest writers for this community that has encouraged me for so long.

Today on the blog I am sharing about starting your dream. For the past few months life has definitely taught me about new beginnings. While in Ghana, I even learned that Ashesi, the name of the university I visited, means beginning. So cool! Beginnings  can be so challenging, yet so freeing at the same time. When we see the door opening for our dream, we have to prayerfully walk through it.

Except we allow things to hold us back. Our thoughts are filled with doubts, we listen to others who try to hold us back, or we feel that we want to wait for a better time – the perfect time.

I learned that there is no better time than today. So we must start now. Where we are. Which is why I love the above quote so much!

To New Beginnings,
