When You Do Not Need to Wait to Move

To follow a dream.
To move forward.
To believe.
To hope against all loss.
To keep moving forward.
This is what it means to hold a
dream the lives and breathes.


One should not wait for life to be perfect to build a dream and make it reality because that seldom happens. Life happens in moments, in tiny increments called today. Hour by hour, second by second. One should not wait for things to change. Make change happen. For me this rings clear. For what I cannot control, I will not sit by and wait. I will focus on that which I can control–my responses, my choices, my thoughts, and my heart. I will keep making my plans and allow God to direct my steps.  Waiting is active. It is not a passive event. It means moving forward in faith even when things appear to be the contrary.

One should not wait for the perfect mix of ingredients. God so often meets us once we get going–moving forward, taking one step in front of the other. God is with us, and He is for us. Just a little something to affirm in our lives today. Don’t stay stuck. Keep on faithing it. Keep on keeping on.


This is day 23 of my 31 Days of Affirmation. In this series I’ll affirm hope, faith, truth, and encouragement even when life is troubling. Particularly the series ponders what it means to hold on to those things that are good, right, noble, honorable, true, and lovely even when life isn’t so pretty. You can read all the series posts here. I hope you’ll be encouraged.
