A young girl sits by the window. She watches the rain fall lightly outside. She dreams of becoming a doctor one day. Most days you can find her face buried in a medical book. She studies hard and looks forward to the day she can save people’s lives.
As she sits by the window, she recalls a conversation from yesterday. She passed by a fellow student who stuck his nose and ego up in the air. He was determined to make her feel weak. When he walked past her, he whispered in her ear “Why would anyone want you for their doctor? You won’t save anyone’s life.”
Doubt was planted in her mind. ‘If he feels this way, surely others do too. Why would anyone want me to be their doctor? Could I really save someone’s life?’
One little comment can make us doubt what we are capable of.
Even if the comment might not be exactly about what we dream of becoming.
Maybe it’s just a comment in general that throws us off of our game.
If we let that comment get to us, we will most likely let future comments and criticism invade our thoughts.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
With the strength that our loving Savior provides, we can do anything!
It can be hard to flush out lies and negativity.
Ridding ourselves of that doubt is crucial to keeping our dreams alive.
2 Cor. 10:5
“…and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
Bring all of the negative thoughts captive.
Ask God for the strength to help with thoughts and doubt.
Through Him, we are capable of anything!
So, dream big!
