“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12 (NLT)
Our hopes and dreams are so central to who we are each day as a person. We can hope for something or someone only to see it unfulfilled. What a disappointment!
Looking back at my life, I see so many hopes that fell away like that. You know what I also see? Almost every time, something even bigger and more amazing came along instead! God knows what we need and when we need it. He is the Master Planner, the one who wants the best for us and longs to fill our every desire. He knows us better than we know ourselves.
If your hopes and dreams are stalled and you want to give up, remember that God knows your heart. He knows your desires and He desperately wants you to be happy. Your hopes may be deferred, they may even be cancelled, because God has something else planned for you. Something so wonderful that you can’t even fathom right now.
Keep the faith! Believe in God’s plan for you and enjoy the journey He has put you on. Good things are ahead, love! I know it!
