I believe it was C.S. Lewis who said it was never to late to set another goal or to dream a new dream. I like to couple that quote with Lamentations 3:22-24,
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,”says my soul, “Therefore I will hope in Him!”
New mercies every time the sun comes up. God’s faithfulness. My soul proclaims that Jesus is my portion, my rock and continual satisfaction, therefore I can hope in Him. This is the foundation, I believe, that gives me the courage to set new goals or dream new dreams. This also gives me the confidence to not settle on something that I want to change about myself.
For me, it’s a mindset. One I know God desires to heal.
I’m thankful He doesn’t just let me sit in even a frame of mind that is hindering me from knowing Him more fully. He loves me, and desires for me to live grace and live joy, not crippling fear or doubt. I’m still seeking out what this change looks like for me, but God is faithful.
