Dreams Come True in Time

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

The other day, I was watching some old TV shows on my laptop. I love stand-up comedy and found an archive of old Comedy Central specials. It was all my favorite comics in some of their early performances. I laughed ’till I cried.

A few of the comics really caught my eye, because I realized how much they changed over the years. In some cases, I was astonished at how much they’d accomplished. I watched one comic in particular and thought, ‘Seven years from now he’s going to sell out Madison Square Garden. A couple of years later, he’ll be on Oprah. Right now, he doesn’t have a clue.’

There were several stories like this as I watched the young comics. One was destined to be one of the few female late night talk show hosts. Many would go on to movies and long-term stints on Saturday Night Live.

It got me excited to see their stories unfold, and it got me thinking about the future.

Statistically speaking, some of you reading this blog who claim to be perpetually single are probably a year or two away from getting married.

You’re sitting in a cubicle today wondering when you’ll get the corner office, but in the future you own a business and work for yourself.

You might be waiting on a child and not even know that you’ll be pregnant by the holidays (I’ve seen it happen; I once interviewed a girl who struggled for years with infertility only to get pregnant by the time the article published).

Do you see what I mean? Miracles, comeback stories… they happen all the time to every type of person. The life you’ve been praying for is nestled sweetly in the future… and it’s waiting for you to arrive.

If you have hope in your heart for the next big thing to come your way, be encouraged today. You may very well be on your way to greatness and seeing those dreams come true. Be diligent in the present and get ready because tomorrow will come sooner than you think.

I have dreams that I beleive have a catch to them for them to come true. I have no trouble beleiving God will answer the desires of our heart if only we do as he sak us to do.
My problem is having the back bone to go to my pastor and telling him that God has instucted me to use my gift of healing on his wife to heal her cancer.
I just haven’t had the guts to tell him what I need to do as God has told me.

I know that the Lord has something wonderful in store for me, I believe it with all my heart and soul. Somtimes my emotions/mind starts to wonder, but I reassure myself that these are human qualities that we cannot denie, immediately after the thought/feeling I praise God, thanking him that I have him to talk with each day, all day! It helps me get through tough times as I know I am a “Diamond in the rough!” I’m staying humble and hiden as I wait on the “GREAT MINER!”

I am so glad as a believer I am not alone. I too am going through so many life changes and I know more than anything that God is in control. I used to say, “I am going to do this”, or “I am never going to do that” and I learned that I am not in control, the good Lord is the only one in control of my path. Thank you Lord for all the blessings in my life, I know that many more are to come. God is great and when we limit him we limit our lives. Never doubt what God can do in your life. Only through him and by him are we successful and prosper.

I thank God for this message and hope that all gets better for those who diligently seek the Lord and for those who don’t because we live in such spiritually challenging times, but what we must remember is who is in charge of our lives? GOD the Father, the Son, and of course the Holy Spirit. Many of us don’t understand that we need all three to survive in this world. For those of you who are facing challenging times (just as I am) realize that what we are going through is nothing like what Jesus had to endure for us. Lastly, we must all endure in order to overcome! Our victory draws near and this alone should be a reason to rejoice! Whenever we are going through something as God fearing people it is to strengthen us and mold us so that we may gladly receive the blessing that God has for us! I’m elated about what God has shown and will continue to show me because HE NEVER FAILS, no matter how much I do!

I’m grateful that HE has so much mercy to forgive and only give tests that we can actually pass as long as we use His Word as a study guide! Hallelujah :)

I, too, am looking for a job at 60 years old. I got laid off from my job the end of January and my husband had a stroke the end of October and has been in a nursing center and now my Mom’s Alzheimers has worsened. I am a very positive person and I know that God will help me through all of these tribulations. I did pray for a job immediately after I got laid off, but God knows best. I don’t know how I could start a new job at this time with all the things going on in my life. I am a very “young” 60 year old and I know that when it’s time, God will send me the right job. I thank God every day for his blessings. This article caught my eye and I am so glad I opened it up and read all the comments. God bless you all.

Thank you for this email. I usually don’t read this mails until I have time. I am going through some rough times at work. I try to make everything right, but it never seems to work. While comuting on the train, I make notes of the bad stuff, and ask God to give me strength to help me make it through another day. I also use a little version of the New Testament in my purse and read the psalms as they apply. Thank you God, my Lord, my Savior.

Dear sweet heavenly father, what a blessing to be able to read these words of inspiration. I can’t begin to explain what is going on in my life. I trust and believe in GOD and him only. However, I noticed that their are times in my life that nothing seems real. But, I always seem to come out of it, and I know it is only his love and mercy that brings me through. I pray for strength, love, peace and joy which I know will only come from him. I believe he will send me a mate that will love GOD as much as I do. One who will worship him with me. A person who will love me for who I am, and I in turn will return the same love. I want to be happy – and I know GOD will not allow me to remain unhappy. GOD bless everyone who participated in these emails – LOVE, PEACE and JOY to all who love the LORD

I love to read everything on Belief.net!! This is so inspring and so true. We all get so anxious for things to materialize and just happen that we waste time worring and forgetting about Joy in our lives. Today 3 miracles happened to me and I’ve been praying and tapping and visualizing and worried to death. And here it all came in one day!! I truly believe that with faith and patience we can all get what we yearn for – all the time, without fail. Keep the faith folks and your vision and before you know it will manifest just like dreamed it would!! Blessings to all.

Thank you soooo much! This is a further confirmation for me that there is Somebody Up There who does listen and care! Thank YOU! ;D

First I want to Thank God Almighty for everything in my life big or small.Then I want to Thank the person who placed this inspirational arrival. You will be Bless all of your life because you are a blessing to others.I’ve learned that when you ask for something give Thanks as if you already received it.Feel the appreciation in yr heart,soul and mind a true thanks and appreciation will bring warmth feeling within you.God will give you everything you want but you have to appreciate what you have that will open the path way to receiving more good in your life. I learned how to say thank you for everything that is giving to me even if its just a small smile from someone else because you never know when its God smile with you.Everybody is unique in this world and everybody go thru a tough time but see that time as a lesson to b learn and yes you do learn from an experience I did. Never see you current problem as an end of the world case and don’t let it bring you down instead take a positive attitude towards it and wait for the positive outcome. O Yes and what I also learned was never to say I don’t want this or that because the things you don’t want is the things go gonna get. I always said I don’t ever want to stay with my parents in-law and I ended up staying with them for 2 Long years but I’m so happy for that because I appreciate them more now. Never forget that God is yours forever and all the good comes from Him. You bring negative to yourself if you complain and don’t appreciate what you have the more you complain the more negative you bring to youself.Yes do ask believe and receive. God Bless every one reading this comment today.

I am up early this morning from a very vivid dream I was recording in a journal. I woke up feeling quite alone and anxious over my dream and had brought up some questions about my past relationships and my current one. It brought a tear to my eye for the perfect timing of this message and I, too had just completed a prayer in jesus’ name. I prayed for a lot what was expressed here in these blogs and I feel im not so alone now..I thank God for all of the gifts I have today and all he has blessed me with followimg up to this day and with my full faith in him, I have a great sense of peace and know with patience, time and prayer that I will find the answers.. I love God and all my brothers and sisters that are his children. Love and light to every single one of you. Stay blessed.

Just to let everyone know

dreams are not giving to you by some force (God)after you prayed.
They are chance unless you know someone and that is just the way life is.

OMG – My story is for believers only.

Last weekend, I asked God to please, please give me a sign that my dreams will come true (I’m trying to publish my first book). Low and behold this morning, when I opened up my email, there you are with my answer. For the believers only, dreams do and will come true, not in ‘our’ time, but in ‘God’s’ time and his time only. It might take 5, 10, 15 years, or it could only take a day; but remember not in ‘our’ time but in ‘God’s’ time. Everything that I’ve prayed for an really needed, I got it. Keep dreaming, keep hoping and keep praying; however, along with these dreams you’re going to also have to develop patience. If you can see it, you can believe it. Never, ever abandon your dreams.

-Amen-

I am having a down day. I am usually a very upbeat person, but lately
I’ve had to work at it. I have prayed all my life and apparently the answer has always been NO!! I recently lost my younger sister in a car accident and her husband had a heart attack a little over 2 months later and died. My older sister and husband may be losing their home cause they can’t pay the taxes. And I’ve never had a relationship that lasted. So hearing about Young comics finally making big while they were still fairly young doesn’t make me feel good. I’m happy for them but I get upset that the dreams I’ve I had have still not come true. But, I still pray everyday, and hope the Lord will say Yes, someday.

Jeanie What you think will happen, will happen. I was adopted two times, my first adopted Mother was killed in a car accident, my adopted Father gave me up for adoption. Six months later a couple went to an orphanage in hopes of adopting a son, they had already adopted a daughter. My future Father saw me pulling a red wagon, in the company of a German Shepard, plus one other dog following my every steps. They chose me immediatley. I was three and a half yrs. old. I was told that I didn’t talk, they took me to a Dr., and he said there was nothing wrong with me, in time I would start talking. My first word spoken was horse, the second word was Texas. I was in Willow Grove Pennsylvania, my Father was stationed at Willow Grove Navel Air Base. The yr. was 1952. In 1971 my Mothers first cousin came to visit me in Lockhart Tx. She told me that she asked me what I was going to do when I grew up. According to her I said I was going to Texas, going to live on a Ranch, and have a lot of horses and dogs. I was six yrs. old at that time. She asked me how many children I was going to have, and I told her,( no children, just horses and dogs.) She told me that I did exactly what I told her I would do at age six. At that time I had thirty-three horses, and twelve dogs. I am proof that what you think will happen, will happen. DREAM BIG AND BELIEVE. I married a Rancher who was Roy Rogers twin, we also ran five hundred head of cattle. DREAMS DO COME TRUE
