Dream builder's VS. Dream stealer's

There are two kinds of people in this life
My mom and dad

Type 1: Dream builders-These are people that see your potential they will encourage you to reach your destiny! They are the ones that will always be there to pick you up when you are down! They give encouraging words and number one thing is they won't let you give up! These are God sent people into your life!!

My Pastors and in-laws

Type 2: Dream Stealer's-These people are from the pit of Hell. They try to shove your inadequacies in your face at all times. They constantly remind you of how you can't reach your destiny. When you are down they will kick you to try to keep you there. Sometimes people like this will come into your life posed as a friend to just surprise you and really hurt you in the end. Keep in mind these people are from the devil not from God!

Everyday you come in contact with lots of people. My Pastor always encourages me to stay around dream builders.

Matthew 7:15&16
Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles

Right here Jesus is warning us that there are going to be people that will come into our life and try to tear it apart. He also tells us that we can identify people by their fruit. So if someone is ripping you apart girls look at their fruit in their life? How is their life going?

Me and CD

My Pastor (click here to hear his messages on line) says to have a very short list of people that you take correction from. Those people should be authority in your life. Everything else that comes your way take it with a grain of salt. Don't let it bother you. Go back to the dream builders in your life and see what they say about it!

Hubby and me

What got me on this you might ask. There has been several dream stealer's sent my way this week. It really grieves my heart. I just want to encourage us to always listen to the voice of love and encouragement in our lives. There will always be those you will try to knock us down! The enemy's number one goal in life is to take away your dreams once he takes that away then you loose hope in your life! Don't ever let him take your dreams! Guard them with everything you have!

But CHIKS just don't listen to them! Remember God is love. Anything that is contrary to the voice of love is from the enemy!

Patti and Dr. Sandy

So who are my dream builders in my life?

My husband, mom and dad, Pastors, CD, Jennifer, Pastor John and Mrs. Anne, Nancy, Misty Westlund, Crystal Boney, Chuck King, and Patti and Dr. Sandy! These are just to name a few!

I know that these people will always be there to encourage me support me love me through anything that I am going through. They are the voices of love in my life! These are the voices that I choose to listen to. Everything else goes out the window!

I agree 100% with everything you said. I think God sends us people to answer a need. They may be our friends for a lifetime or only for a season, but they are there for a purpose. I thank God every day for those He has sent to me, Patti being one of them. I feel blessed because of this gifts He has shared with me. Debbie

Howdy! I'm Ruth Ann said...

Hi Crystal....are you the cutest thing or what?!! That comment you left me was so encouraging and heartwarming! You are a dream builder and I am so glad you are in my blog-life! One of these days I would love to come on down to Don't-Mess-With TEXAS (that's one of my favorite sayings!) and hang out with you and Patti! How fun would that be! Keep dreaming big because we serve a big God!
blessings and hugs!

I have been meaning to stop by to thank you for the very insightful, very sweet message that you left for me over the weekend! Your kindness and support is so very much appreciated and even though we believe in different religions, we are still on the same page. There is only one God and we both know and love Him. After all, Judaism is the big brother to Christianity so we are all family!

Thanks again for all of your sweet words. I read and took in everything that you said, dear heart.
