Are you aware of this? No matter how big your dream seems to you. It's just a fraction of what God has in mind for you. Besides, no matter how big what you've lost previously seems to you. It's equally a fraction of what God intends or plans to restore back to you. In other words, God has a lot of goodies in stock for you, even beyond your imagination and expectation. I mean, the best days and things of your life are yet to come. Oh! yes, I do believe that undoubtedly. You too may or may not believe that anyway.
Are you being or have you been discouraged by your age? If Yes, then it's high time you've got to refuse to be discouraged by it. For, your age shouldn't discourage you from pursuing/going after/achieving a new dream/vision/aspiration.
Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you are a creature of God and have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider yourself defeated again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life's blueprint. Smile!
Constant learning is the dream of the wise; stupidity however is the history of mankind. I am sure that one day the younger generation will be ready to read books again and will wonder why they didn't enjoy them before.
Decide never to give up on your dream/destiny/vision. Rather, hold on to your God-given dream/destiny/vision and dare to realize/fulfill it outrightly. Knowing/believing that it's never late or too late to discover/realize/fulfill your God-given dream/destiny/vision. Oh! Yes, as long as you are still alive it's never late or too late to do just that, unless you do think otherwise.
Disparity between a dream and a vision. A dream induces an expectation. But, a vision endows a provision. Moreover, a dream could be ordinary and extraordinary too. Meanwhile, an ordinary dream is synonymous with an ambition which often doesn't emerge a reality. But, on the other hand, extraordinary dream is divine or rather it comes from God. That's why most times it turns out to become a reality. Besides that, a vision could also be ordinary and extraordinary too. However, an ordinary vision is a mental picture of what the future could be or would look like. And like an ordinary dream, most times it ends up unrealized. Whereas, an extraordinary vision is of God. I mean, it originates or emanates from God and it is ever meant for an appointed time. As a matter of fact, it must come to pass even against all odds. SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (HABAKUK 2 : 3).
Dream is not a revelation. If a dream affords the dreamer some light on himself, it is not the person with closed eyes who makes the discovery but the person with open eyes lucid enough to fit thoughts together. Dream- a scintillating mirage surrounded by shadows- is essentially poetry.
