New Dream

(me and live dreaming)

"You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream."

I am 26 years old, and I am finding that some of the dreams that I had for my life aren't working out. 

Bummer. 

When you've put so much time and faith and effort into something, and it comes to an end... well it's rather difficult. 

I have spent so much time in prayer, but I have come to realize that just because that a specific plan or dream isn't coming to pass, doesn't mean that God doesn't have something amazing planned.

Realize that God's plans are better than your dreams. 

It's difficult to let go of something, and we don't understand sometimes why things or people are taken from us. 

Begin to ask God for a new dream to take root in your heart. Start working towards something new. Start praying for the future God has planned, not just the one you hoped for. 

And if you find yourself in a place of broken dreams, I believe that God can exchange them for something better. 

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. To give you a hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11

Today, I would love to hear from you. What verse (or verses) reminds you of God's promises and God's plan?

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
