QUOTES & NOTES:
"You do not have because you do not ask God." James 4:2
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Ephesians 3:20-21
Don't be embarrassed to ask God for anything.
We can't have a closed Bible and wonder why God isn't speaking to us. That'd be like having your cell phone off and expecting a call.
We can trust God's Word.
Think of your life like a journey on a timeline. Remember the times God has come through for you and write them down on that timeline.
Go to God with your feelings instead of running from Him.

Whenever the Bible talks about trials and tests, we know that God puts us through tests with our faith.
Trials are God’s vote of confidence in us.
Practical ways to help with discouragement and trust:
We can’t have a closed Bible and wonder why God isn’t speaking to us. Just like we can’t have a cell phone turned off and wonder why we weren’t getting any calls.
We must celebrate right where we are.

Pray over your list of dreams and pray for God to change your desires if it’s not His will for you.
