I often listen and see people who want to be supported to achieve their dreams, but who do not support others in their dreams and projects. Very often I hear speeches from people who think they are very wise and capable enough to tell others that they will not achieve what they want, that things are not that way and so they go around the world cutting dreams and hopes.
But it is difficult to find people who can be seen as bridges, as doors that serve so that others can pass. People who are willing to open roads and fight not only for their welfare, but also that of others. Men and women who are willing to be agents of change when it is easier to follow the crowd or be frightened. People who have been and are willing to expose if necessary, their own lives so that this world is a better one.
One of the things that the gentleman spoke to me when he gave me my dream was: Darlenys, this I give to you so that you can serve me and bless the lives of others, take a pen as the logo of this dream, so that wherever you go, give it to those people who have dreams in their hearts, I am the giver of dreams, and you are a builder of them, although it has not been easy, being a dreamer, it also brings envy, betrayal, and harsh process, being a dreamer, is to be a visionary, and a warrior, but every time I defeat a giant the dream giver receives honor.
Christianity is a way of life, from that wonderful encounter with God and to feel it in our hearts, other things must flow. By this I mean that we should not be the stone in the shoe, we can not hurt those of our own army, and much more we have to give an example to those who have not yet been able to know Jesus Christ.
Sometimes it seems that we will forget that this vagabond, delinquent or prostitute that we see like this, can become transformed and be different. That the boy or girl who comes from the street can become an illustrious person if he finds people who extend his hand and give him an accurate word in time. We must be more sensitive to what happens around us, to the pain of people, to the expectations and desires that others have.
Who says that for an old man it's too late to go back to school? Or that a housewife, can not she manage to make her dream more treasured reality? Laughing at the dreams of other people simply makes us cruel, but when we believe and try to help them achieve them in turn we are achieving ours. We have to be visionaries, because Jesus was. He saw in each of his disciples potential beyond his office and his academic preparation. He examined the heart of the Samaritan woman and saw that she needed him to come to that well to meet her. He saw in the adulteress a soul that could be redeemed and freed, did not help to throw stones, was the peacemaker. In Zacchaeus he did not see a tax collector, he saw a man who was in need of a transformation.
We have to start believing in ourselves and in others. Elijah saw in Elisha a successor, he did not feel envy, he did not fear that he would usurp his place, on the contrary, he taught him everything he could. One day Elisha received the mantle and obtained a double portion. Moses taught everything he could to Joshua, Paul had his helpers. Because we are better when we work as a team. Please, do not despise your neighbor. Help everyone you can, do good without looking at who. Do not do good only to those who know or behave well with you, penetrate the darkness of someone who silently asks for desperate cries for help. It is easy to love those who love us, but virtue consists in being able to help others even when they have hurt us. When someone has fallen to the ground or to the deepest abyss, we have to extend our arms and help them out of the pain and darkness in which they find themselves.
I'm not a saint or anything like it. I know that what I say is not always easy to do. But God wants us to be the transport, the vehicle, the link. That we can help others dream and make their dreams come true. May we impart a word of encouragement and hope, when all the others speak, confess and shout badly. He who has mercy as the text of the Bible that I have used says, is and will be blessed. Every time we disparage, we are invalidating and trampling on the dignity of a person. Every time we make fun of others, really who we are making fun of is ourselves. Every time we use a word to destroy it is as if we were killing or killing someone's hope. And in that way we can not wait to get to heaven.
I invite you to be part of the year-end campaign, initiated by @sc-v "Turn on a Light" let us shine the light of Christ and enlighten the lives of others, that is our mission, that when we go through the darkness of the people, these are clarified by the light of God in us.
It's time for freedom!
Bring your light to the world!
