If you lose sight of your dreams, walk back in that direction... January 11 2015
Sometimes God doesn't show up in the way we want or speak/answer in how we want because it's a new season, a different time, He's doing a new thing, or He's waiting for us to obey and not do things in our own will. Like a train that went off track, reposition yourself to get back on track by going to God in prayer. Maybe you have to dig a little deeper in prayer because we can sometimes be tempted to drift when our superficial prayers aren't answered right away.
We pray and after 5-10 minutes, don't see a light or we're trying to hurry up because our movie is about to come on or friends and family are calling us into the other room. Wasn't that what Jesus grew so frustrated with the disciples about - not going deep into prayer and falling asleep? Think about when it went - the when being your dream, your faith, your hope and the went being where you lost sight of it and felt abandoned or left behind and just like Mary and Joseph, go back and find Jesus. He's there in the church.
