Pursue your dreams and goals!


I have been so blessed to have come into contact with people who have been willing to help me better myself with no strings attached. For quite a while it's been my vision to be able to someday give back what was so freely given to me. That time has finally come in the form of a new website God blessed me with called "God's Glory". It's not professional or anything like that but I just wanted to at least make a start. I began this site on April 28th and I must say that it has been very exciting and difficult at the same time. My mind's been going 100 miles per hour with new ideas that I believe would be an asset to Christians, musicians, singers, churches, businesses, etc. I realize that maintaining a website is a very tedious thing but I also believe that God will give me the strength, wisdom, and determination I need in order to maintain this site. The only real failure in life is the failure to try.

There are so many people out there who have dreams, goals, and visions but they've been told all their lives that they could never dream. They've been told that they just have to go with the flow and not think outside the box. I can't speak for any other race but as a black woman, I know that I have found more discouragement from my own race than anywhere else. For some reason, we grew up being told to never dream. Thank God that I have come into the knowledge of the truth. What is this truth I learned you ask? The truth is God has planted dreams and visions inside of each and ever person regardless of the sex, race, limitations, and creed. God wants us to dream! He wants us to see ourselves doing the impossible. Why? Because this gives him the opportunity to show himself strong. 2 Chronicles 16:9 says: For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

One of the best examples I've read in the Bible about pursuing the impossible is found in 1 Samuel the 30th chapter. If you get a chance read the entire chapter but for the sake of this post I will focus on verse 8 which says: 8 And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. God told him to PURSUE! Why? Because this gave God the opportunity to reveal his power in an impossible situation. Don't be afraid be afraid to pursue your dreams! Don't allow anything or anyone to hinder or abort the dream God has placed inside of you. Will it be easy? NO! Will you face opposition? YES! But God wouldn't have given you a dream that he couldn't make come true. Luke 1:37 says: For with God nothing shall be impossible. All we have to do is believe and PURSUE!!

As a new site owner I welcome people's input, especially other site owners. So far people have really encouraged me but I have also been given the doomsday scenario of running and maintaining a site. I don't let it bother me because many times people tell me things like this because they have tried it and failed and they just don't want me to go through the same thing. I just can't allow myself to think negatively right now. I have to continue to pursue my dream because I want my dreams to become reality. They already are to tell the truth.

I can't close this post without sharing some of the features of my site and without inviting anyone who reads this post to check it out. You can click on this link to visit http://www.chevonnereynolds.webs.com . If you like it please feel free to join it's free! Please pray that God helps me see this thing through. There's a lot of work involved but I have confidence in God. Below is a clip of me demonstrating the features of "God's Glory"
