If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams, and endeavors to lead a life which they have imagined, they will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. ~Henry David Thoreau~
Pay heed to the dreams and visions you’ve been given. They are not merely idle thoughts or wishful musings. With faith, trust, hope and perseverance, they can become your reality! The key is to take action on the dream or vision, ever moving confidently toward its’ realization.
Thought for the day
As stated in the 12 and 12, action is the key word in recovery. Where are my actions leading me today; towards recovery and spiritual growth or towards my addictions and a self centered existence? If you are waiting for an email or a fax from God with your life mission, you may be waiting a long time. God speaks to us in the stillness of a quiet morning, through the words of others, through homilies and stories, through the radio, TV, our spirit, revelations through the scriptures and other spiritual writings and any medium we can imagine and some we can’t. The only requirement to receive His instructions is to be watchful and expectant of his promptings.
For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it…[One may hear God’s voice] in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed, Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction… ~Job 33:14,15 (Amp.)~
And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly on tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.
~Habakkuk 2:2,3 (Amp.)~
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath… ~Acts 2:17-19~
