I heard this challenge five years ago, and it indeed got the whole of me, I got challenged indeed. I am just an ordinary person who has ordinary views in life. I don't dream big before co's I was afraid of disappointment, until I heard this challenge and conquer it. I dream of a beautiful wedding... but I know I can't have it because my fiance' that time who is my hubby this time has no money as well. We were then full time worker of a small church which can't even pay our allowances regularly. But I still believe in that dream and I put my trust in the Lord that He will makes things possible. Then my wedding comes.. and it was indeed the wedding of the year as for me, because it was grand not as grand as those who are really rich though, but was grand to those people whose like me that just dream of such wedding. Happy mylotting guys. Let's indeed dream big dreams.

Dreams are our steppings stones or they act as our goals. If we don't have any dreams at all, what could be our purpose? You're right. We have to dream. Dream big. Dream high. It's free to dream. Let's just don't expect that we can achieve them all soon. Everything has its own time.

Your totally right.If we won't dream, it seems that we are contented of what is happening with our lives and not inspiring of getting a better life. Dreams is what make our life exciting. If we won't dream our life is boring. We are just like those people who consumed all their time sitting outside their house or making "tambay" doing nothing but gossiping and end up begging for money.

Yes, I agree with you. We should not stop dreaming. Life is too short so we should make it worthwhile. We should now waste our time.

Yup, my new dream now is having a baby boy. Hubby and I been praying for that six months after or marriage, but up to now it is not still happening. But I know that in His time He'll make things possible and beautiful. The waiting is probably the hardest thing to do, but I pray that the Lord would strengthen me more as I wait. Conceiving it pretty hard for some these days while others kill their newborn. But I won't stop dreaming.... and dreaming it big. God bless you!

Just believe... don't stop believing co's the Lord is good enough to give us our hearts desire. My weeding was then a power testimony of how good God is to my co-church's workers. It was indeed a beautiful wedding. Some people told me to be practical and don't wish much co's I get disappointed but I did not give in to their prodding and instead believe what God can do to the big dream of mine. I really can't do anything about it because I have n cash and I told God show me who you are with my wedding. And indeed the Lord's glorified Himself! I was grateful enough to be His instrument to show His goodness. I would never get tired of telling people how beautiful my wedding is :)) not for the sake of me but for HIM who makes things happen. :)) God bless to you and happy mylotting!

Do it. Just believe that it will happen and it would indeed. When I was not a born again Christian yet, I don't believe in weddings and marriage. I told myself I won't get married , I will settle for a lie-in thing. But then... when I became a Christian my views became different and it was the time I prayed for a life time partner, a good marriage and a good wedding. The Lord is indeed good and he gave me the desire of my heart. I'm just thankful I prayed and have put everything in the Lord's hands. I pray that you too will be able to receive the desires of your heart. Just believe that God will do it for you. God bless.

Your post is very positive hope to see more from you . I do like the way you think and how you look at challenges . I also think certain dreams I have scared me but its something I am willing to face . My dream is worth fighting for so as you I will put all my faith in the lord for his strength and guidance.

Scary dreams are big dreams. I remember dreaming of visiting friends who lives in Ontario, Canada. I know the dream was quite impossible but I dream it anyway. Though I only have faith in me co's I don't have money or any documents to show I still took step of faith. I Applied for a visa thrice, but my first and second I got denied. Then comes the third, I applied with hubby and to our surprise we got it both of us. I was happy I never stop dreaming though I fail twice, I just hang on to God's promise that He'll make things possible in His time. We indeed went to Canada for a month and did enjoyed the beauty of the place. We were not only stayed in one place but traveled a lot of places there. And now... I dreaming again... dreaming to have a baby boy and another girl. I know it's quite hard to get pregnant this time but I know God is able if only I would go on dreaming. As for you, keep on dreaming big dreams though it's scary most of the time. happy mylotting and thanks for discussing big dreams with me.

Yes, it is important when we dream, and set Goals for ourselves and our life to Dream big. Because if you do not, your life might always be full of Disappointments and looking back we will wish we had always done something else. Even when things may not always be going the best, it is time to look forward and set things into motion to help you be able to move on.

Yup, four years ago hubby and I were talking about how we could get a house of our own knowing how little the allowance we get from our work. It took us two years to finally step the big step of faith. We decided to see houses and really prayed hard that the Lord would give us one. Then when we finally saw a house we liked and finally agreed to get it. We indeed were able to pay the reservation and the monthly amortization and is now waiting to finally visit the house for inspection. Soon, hubby and I together with our adorable baby girl would be moving in to that dream house. I know that the dream was quite very big for hubby and me, but we also believe that the God we serve is much bigger than any dream that we have. So let's all keep on dreaming... and really dream it big for God is good.

This Christmas my team will hold a christmas parties to over one thousand or more kids in some area here greater manila area. Our theme this time is "ano ba ang pasko sa'yo?" We don't have funds as well, but the coordinator of the parties and same with the whole team believe that God is able to meet our needs. Indeed, the Lord is meeting our financial needs for these parties. Just believe that it will happen. If we can't do anything anymore, God will do everything! God bless!

Thank you. We are now in our fourth year. Still hanging on to each other. There are loads of ups an downs in our married life but we try to get things done and okay ath the end of the day. We still has loads of big dreams... dreams that only the Lord could make things happen. But I believe God will do big things in our life if we only we'll let him.
