Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Love yourself and be excited about everything.
Everything that you do makes for a good life.
The good in your life helps others and pleases God.
Please God by doing His will and surrendering all.
Surrendering all will not kill you, it makes you a better person.
A better person yearns for salvation.
Salvation is a promise that God promised to keep us saved.
Keep us saved is a way of protection while still in the world.
While I am still in the world I must press toward the prize.
Pressing toward the prize is our focus for what's to come.
What's to come is eternal life with Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is our savior.

 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

Crushed Dream

If you have a passion for something in life, pursue it. It may be a job, education, money or relocation. Whatever it may be, do your research first. Know your options and vision it all coming together full circle in the end.

Too many times we can be persuaded by what someone else says or thinks. Well, that same unsolicited advice could crush your dream.

If you know that God has given you a definite direction in life, don't allow anyone to interrupt that plan.

Others will not always understand to share what you may have in mind for yourself. You may decide to do something, doesn't mean "I" may go about it the same way. This doesn't give me the right to be negative or opinionated about "your" decision.

Instead be supportive and ask questions. If you love that person you will try to embrace their efforts and show some love, by being positive and encouraging.

Quote: It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing their dreams. ~Gabriel Garcia Marquez
