I love making dream boards. I used to make them as a kid before they were a thing. I wanted my own magazine just because I loved thinking of themes and putting pictures together peppered with words that inspired me. My journal was more of a scrap book with poetry, thoughts and pages ripped from magazines. It was my way of communicating with my higher self.
A dream board is like praying and goal setting all in one. Right before my sister and I were diagnosed with cancer, I made a dream board. I had words all over it along with pictures that inspired me. The words that stood out to me the most were “wisdom and purpose.”
God always answers prayers. Not in the way we want, of course. If we pray for strength, he gives us the opportunity to be strong. If we pray for love, He gives us the challenge to love with out conditions. I prayed for wisdom, purpose and to grow in spirit. In the midst of all of this loss and all of these challenges, my prayers were being answered. No matter how hard life is or becomes, I trust that God knows what He is doing. I will continue to pray in my position of prayer.
