January. First. Fresh. New. Beginning.

 January. First. Fresh. New. Beginning.

Being a teenager and chasing after some “unordinary” dreams & visions can get frustrating at times. We get lost in the shuffle of life & usually have no idea where to start. Guess what? I have a resolution. 

Aligning Your Dreams. It is all to easy to chase after our own dreams. We forget all to often that when we chase our “selfish” ambition, it will fall through the cracks & leave us empty, wanting more. Aligning your dreams with Jesus’ will for your life will SHINE & SOAR about the rest. It will radiate exuberantly in your heart and in the lives of others. Seek the Lords face & allow Him to guide you. He will give you a dream that has never been dreamt before.

Hebrews 12:11-13 For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.

Making Goals. A great way to organize your thoughts is to write them down in a journal. Write down your goals, no matter how big. Write down investments, whether that be a new lens, editing software, laptop or sewing machine, giving yourself a vision will help inspire you to keep moving forward. Set a deadline, be determined & know that if it is the Lords will, it WILL happen. Find peace in knowing you are not in control. 

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

Prepare. Be steadfast. When we call upon the Lord, seek His face and are willing to follow in His foot steps, there is NO holding back. Press, press, press deeper into His presence. It is not easy & often times messy, but there is beauty in the mess of it all. Jesus does not desire ordinary for our lives. He calls us to realities that look crazy to this world & others around us. Are you ready to walk worthy of your calling? 

Colossians 1:10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,

Pray. I promise you have heard this more than once. Lay your heart our before the Lord & listen. Where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom, peace & joy. 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
