“This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Have you ever over analyzed your goal to the point of just being in a form of paralysis?  It felt like a denial of the dream that I had for my life or possibly a form of punishment for my previous choices.  My life was stagnant with researching and wishing over and over again that my life could be different.  We can be forever learners but never really coming to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:7)

It was not until I was working at a childcare center, side by side with another teacher much younger than myself, doing the exact job; that my eyes were open to reality.  I had the experience, but she had the degree. I was amazed at how much more money she earned than I did.  

My husband is a hard worker and never pressured me to work outside of the home.  We married young and were working extremely taxing jobs.  We were simply trying to put a roof over our heads and food on the table.  The Goodwill store was our best friend.  There were things I desired, so I decided I needed a sense of security just in case something would happen to my hardworking husband.  At this point after much prayer, marriage, and four children I decided to continue my education.  It was time to stop analyzing and feeling paralyzed.  It was time to actively pursue my dreams. 

Lead your life by constantly pursuing higher levels of education. There is always something new to learn. 


Look at all the opportunities the Lord has given you; stop analyzing and get serious about actively pursuing your dreams.

How can you remove the paralysis and become an active participant in God’s plan for your life?
