None of this, stepping out in faith, following our dreams, or even letting dreams die is without pain. That is why it is so difficult. It takes courage to take the beautiful risk of following a dream without a guaranteed outcome; it takes even more boldness to follow the dream without knowing whether you can except the outcome. true bravery recognizes the need to release our vision and even our desire to control as much as possible, so our dreams can be fulfilled as God sees fit. it takes real trust to believe God us the author of the dreams even if they don’t play out the way we hope they will, even if stories this side of heaven fall short of happily ever after. Because we serve a great God, we can find the strength to trust that his goodness will win out, somehow, someway and sometime.
