Tonight, I was perusing through one of my newly-favorite blogs~ http://christablack.tumblr.com. Christa Black is an author and speaker, as well as a musical artist. She asked a very interesting question-
What do you do with the pain of unfulfilled dreams?
I know that I have a specific dream in my life that I have prayed over for quite some time. I have shared it with several friends and tried to seek out the Lord in understanding whether it was His will for me or not. Christa also has a dream yet to be realized. Here is how she described her pain-
"My soul was bleeding all over the place, camped out in hopelessness instead of the peace that’s always available from my Father, and my spirit needed a booster shot of truth to snap me out of it...
I thank you, Jesus, that I have the money I need to eat, sleep, and live comfortably. I will never forget the people I saw starving to death in Africa, Jesus. I know you showed me that for a reason. I know you are preparing me for something. And I thank you for allowing me to realize my dream of visiting Africa.
