God has a dream for my life that is better than anything I can imagine. I'm not restricting myself to my own limited dreams. I am reaching for God's dream, and I can hardly wait to see what happens.
Psalm 46 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.
Psalms 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid?
Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in him.
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord.
Matthew 6:26 Consider the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not a single sparrow falls to the ground without your Father knowing it.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
1 Corinthians 13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
You need to look at yourself through God's eyes of love to understand what it means to be one of his children. You need to learn the facts of love.
Most of my limitations disappear when I do two things. I live as if my dreams are possible and act as if I cannot fail. I don't worry about my limitations. Most of them vanish when exposed to the power of persistent action.
What would you do if your dreams were possible, and how would you act if you could not fail? When you answer those two questions, you'll know exactly what you need to do to make your dreams come true.
Life does not consist so much of facts and events; it consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that blow endlessly through my mind.
If I don't control what goes into my mind, then I have no choice but to endure the storm of thoughts that I find there. I am the one who decides what will blow through my mind. If I don't like what I find, I can change it. All I need to do is change what I put into my mind.
Malachi 4:2 But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.
Every new beginning creates a new ending. It's never over until God says it's over, so it's time to get started on a new life.
Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Every destination starts as a thought. That's why my thoughts are so important; they determine where I go. My dreams don't happen by themselves. I must think and act them into existence.
Genesis 28:15 I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised.

My beliefs create my personal world and give my life its meaning. They create the world as I believe it to be. It's my unique reality and is the only world I will ever know. I created it and must live in it.
God knows my life from start to finish, and it won't be over until He says it's over. I have nothing to fear.
Psalm 30:5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
Isaiah 2:4 He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
Psalm 113:3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, the Lord's name is to be praised.
Psalm 95:2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise.
From the top of your head to the tip of your toes, you are a miracle. It's time to discover the miraculous in your life.
God's plan for my life is simple. He will take all my choices, mistakes, and failures, and turn them into something good.
God's love not only points you in the right direction, it also gives you the power to make the trip.
I don't need to figure everything out. My trust is in the Lord and not in my head. God is my Source, and I place my trust in him.
No matter how things seem, I will put my trust in God. No matter what happens, I will trust God to make my life into something good.
