Hopes and Dreams

"God expects us to have enough faith and determination and enough trust in him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing.  In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future (that sounds pretty grim and stoic).  He expects you to embrace and shape the future- to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your opportunities.

God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams.  Just as he always has.  But he can't if you don't pray, and He can't if you don't dream.  In short he can't if you don't BELIEVE
~Elder Jeffery R. Holland

I love how he uses the word "dream" everyone has dreams.  I have noticed at certain times of my life when I was the most unhappy it was because I wasn't dreaming. I wasn't praying or believing that things would get better. I know that we have a father in heaven that loves us! He truly wants us to be happy! And he wants to answer our prayers and make our hopes and dreams come true!
