"Don't confuse your path with your destination. Just because it's stormy now, doesn't mean that you aren't headed for sunshine"-J. Johnson, The Growth Campaign
It's true. We all have dreams, and we all have paths to take to reach those dreams. Some of the paths we take or have taken to reach desired goals and dreams are like driving over rough, hard, rocky terrain.
But don't be fooled. Your dreams are not hallucinations, which are perceptions of objects with no reality; nor are they like mirages which are deceptive appearances of distant objects. Uh-Uh. Get this, your dreams are like a reality. Your reality. And they have purpose.
Whatever your path looks like, however hard your path may be while you're on it, remember it's an hallucination. Your destination is a reality. Don't confuse the two just because it gets tough. Remember you have a purpose, and He has a plan for you.
So please come on in. Make your way to the sliding doors. At the bottom of the stairs, you'll find the island gazebo. Please be my guest for drinks, appetizers, soup and salad, then the main course.
I'm looking ahead, still traveling on my path, but welcome to my destination. Welcome to my reality.
