Sekai no Hikari: Light of the World

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden…In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

on May 25, 2013

        Recently, I listened to another song by Britt Nicole called “Still that Girl,” and the chorus really reminded me of lots of times in my life, as well as other people’s. It goes like this:

You were young, you were free/And you dared to believe/You could be the girl/That could change the world/Then your life took a turn/And you fell, and it hurt/But you’re still that girl/And you’re going to change this world

        My dreams have died many times, and my life has turned for the worse many times. But the nice thing about God is that the worse becomes the better for those who love him. Suffering brings hope and makes us the child of God that we were always meant to be. When we fall, God will be there to help us get back up.

        Speaking of children, I think we all need to be more in touch with our inner child in several ways. First of all, children are humble, and we need to be like that. (This one, Jesus said.) Secondly, children are hopeful. Their hope is contagious, so spend time with kids! Finally, children have big dreams. God is the One that gives us passions and dreams, and kids seem to know this. I think we should never stop dreaming. If you have the right attitude, and the right heart, God can use you in huge ways.

        Never forget this: that from the teenager waiting for her life to begin, to the 80-year-old who feels useless, everyone can be used by God. Never give up on your dreams! God is infinitely bigger than any obstacle. You are important and valuable, and you have been saved, and redeemed, and set free. Now you will do great things for God in your own unique way!
