“William was right after all; the comet Della C 1981 finally did return, a half century late(er), but as bright and magnificent as he had predicted.” -Narrator, The Age of Adaline
Life’s dreams are often snuffed out after many years of failing to see the fruit of their predictions. Work and watch as we may, our dreams often fail to produce in the timeframe we expected. And it is at this point when many a weary soul lets go of their dreams. Still some tenacious hearts press on, but many fail to see the full realization of the ideas and hopes and visions that once fueled their young fire.
Don’t. Give. Up.
Let go of perfection.
Let go of the time frame.
Even if it takes 15 years or 50 years or 100 hundred more. No one ever gained a thing by losing heart. Though much is gained in letting go, perhaps.
I keep dreaming, hoping, praying, working, trusting.
“The joy of the Lord is [my] strength.” –Nehemiah 8:10
I pray that perhaps I will still have light in my eyes and quickness of step to walk into the Promised Land, and I will give my days to walk out the fullness of every promise and every freedom that God has given me to see it for myself and for my family.
The Lord has not left me, and He is not finished with me.
While it be yet late to others, it is always right on time to God.
