“Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.”
Any revolutionary book, invention or person probably faced a lot of criticism as to why they were “wasting their time” or “looking like a fool” as they pursued a dream. Noah faced it while building his gigantic arc. Noah, just like many great visionaries, heard and honored God’s calling by staying the course and ignoring the naysayers. Even if there was no criticism, visionaries probably encountered something even worse and more isolating – no words of encouragement or outside influence to guide them.
God never puts a desire in our hearts that cannot manifest. The tools are within us and through us, all we have to do is ask for the solutions with an expectant heart.
I could easily just sit back and be satisfied with my insurance job and live a quiet, uneventful life. I know that’s not why I’m here. I’m here to enlighten and inspire with my words. I can imagine people must think I’m crazy for starting a blog, writing a novel, or discussing spiritual matters. I don’t care what people think, really, I can’t care what people think. There is a driving force inside me – God’s push – that moves me each day closer to my dreams.
