from expecting to surrendering.

From Stormies Heart
God puts dreams in our hearts to give us vision and inspiration and to guide us to the right path. That's why we have to make sure the dreams we have are not from our own flesh. The only way to be sure of that is to lay all of our dreams at His feet and let them die. And we must also die to them. The ones that are not from Him will be buried forever. The ones that are from Him will be given new life.
God doesn't want any part of you to be unsurrendered, not even the dreams He has put in your heart. If you give Him all of your dreams, then you will see which ones are born of His Spirit. Pursuing the ones that aren't will only lead to misery, frustration, and unfulfillment. Dying to your dreams is difficult, but if you reach up and take your heavenly Father's hand, He will shine His light on the situation and walk you through the process step-by-step.
God often provides just enough light for the stept we are on - we have to trust Him and walk in obedience to his leading. Then He will illuminate the next step we are to take ...

"...he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. " Psalm 23:3
prayer: I pray that You, Father, would restore my soul and lead me on the path You have for my life.
