An Intensely Bright Future: Yours

With God's power working in us, God can do much,
much more than anything we can ask or imagine. 

Ephesians 3:20 NCV

It takes courage to dream big dreams. You will discover that courage when you do three things: accept the past, trust God to handle the future, and make the most of the time He has given you today.

Are you excited about the opportunities of today and thrilled by the possibilities of tomorrow? Do you confidently expect God to lead you to a place of abundance, peace, and joy? And, when your days on earth are over, do you expect to receive the priceless gift of eternal life? If you trust God's promises, and if you have welcomed God's Son into your heart, then you should believe that your future is intensely and eternally bright.

No dreams are too big for God—not even yours. So start living—and dreaming—accordingly.

You cannot out-dream God.
John Eldredge 

The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.
Thomas Merton

Set goals so big that unless God helps you, you will be a miserable failure.
Bill Bright

The future lies all before us. Shall it only be a slight advance upon what we usually do? Ought it not to be a bound, a leap forward to altitudes of endeavor and success undreamed of before?
Annie Armstrong

Today's Prayer

Dear Lord, my hope is in You. Give me the courage to face the future with certainty, and give me the wisdom to follow in the footsteps of Your Son, today and forever. Amen
