Part 5: Build Your Dream Live the Life You've Always Wanted! PREPARED BY PSTR SMSON Texts: James 4:14 (NKJV) - “For what is your life?” What a great question to help position yourself for the future! Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living." That could mean several things, but it definitely means that we should at least compare where we are right now with where we hope to be someday. Jeremiah 24:6-7 (NKJV) - “For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I will build them and not pull them down, and I will plant them and not pluck them up. [7] Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.” A. These incredible promises are about your life. God has set His eyes upon you for good and wants to build you up and not tear you down. He wants to bless you, to give you a heart to know Him, and to be your God. Revelation 12:11 (NKJV) - “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” When the two strategies in the above verse are combined, every opposition from the enemy can be overcome for what God has planned for us. First, we must have God's help—which is the blood of the Lamb. Second, we must do our part—which is the word of our testimony. The Greek word for “testimony” is: evidence ; a report given by a witness , as in a judicial case; to swear or affirm what is the truth. Your testimony declares what God has spoken about your life. The truth is, you can't overcome the enemy without God's help, which is Jesus' blood, or your part—which is your testimony. Both are required. The steps for making your dream become a reality are: See It! Say It! Pray It! Pay It! Play It! Stay It! and then Sanctify It! To See It involves a clearly defined goal or dream; your Vision. But after you clearly See It , you must also learn to Say It, and continue to say or declare it until your dream becomes a reality. 1

Part 2 - “Say It” B. Since dreams are often disguised as a great challenge, you must keep talking to yourself about your destiny, even when you're distracted or tempted to give up your dream. Those who succeed in life have this in common: they have learned to change their self-talk and to understand the purpose for every challenge. Those who fail can be easily identified by their negative comments and self-talk. For your dream to become a reality, you not only have to Say It, but you must keep repeating your dream over and over again until your self-talk has completely changed—no matter how many times or how long it takes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
