We shared a message about faith and dreams.

Do you have a dream?
Is there  anything you want to do in the future?

A person whose dream comes true and a person whose dream doesn’t come true.

A person who gave up his dream and a person who hasn’t given up it at all. 

What is the difference?

The message by Pastor Will was so powerful!!
Many people were really encouraged!

It’s very important for us to add action with faith to make our dreams come true.



James 1:22 NIV
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”



You may not get good results at first.
Sometimes you may fail or face a tough time in the process.


But God is always with you. 
The Holy Spirit has empowered us to put our faith into action and accomplish the dreams that God has given us.


2 Corinthians 4:18 NLT
“So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”

Step out with faith on the road God is leading you on.

There are many amazing things that we can learn on the road to fulfilling our God given dream!

We just need to trust the Lord to lead us.



Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

It was so exciting!Everyone got glued to his performance!!Wow!!

However….

 

You may not be able to believe it, he spent hard times in his childhood.

He got bullied by his classmates everyday.

His teacher was filling out a stream of cruel words…..

Too hard, too though, every day…..

But he didn’t give up!! He believed love of God, and never stop walking forward to his future.

Look at his shiny smile!!

We were moved and encouraged by his story so much and realized God is AMAZING!

God is always here and watching each of us.

Sometimes you may face hard times.

Even you are in those times, God is being with you and leading you to a right way.

Didn’t forget.

Never give up.

You are ”special” that God made!!

God loves us beyond borders!!
Feel the amazing love of God with friends all over the world!!

Life is not easy.

Sometimes we are not sure where we are going.

But don’t be afraid when you face a hard time.

Trust God, and PRAY!!!!

God always love you, encourage you and lead you to a right way!

 

(Ephesians 3:20 ERV) With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of.
