Have You Got a Dream?

Bubba Bruce showed me a a video clip of the new British singing sensation, Susan Boyle. You can watch her at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z0h1NNk1Ik but youtube is not permitting people to “embed” the video in postings at other sites. I encourage you to click on the link.

susan-boyle1She sings of dreams, and you know hers is coming true. She shows up our prejudices, and most of all our empty focus on things that don’t matter all that much.

Check out Susan, listen to her, and connect with your own dream. You are the biggest obstacle to it coming true.

Get out of your own way, and trust God.

  1. I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES WHEN I WATCHED THIS ON T.V. THE OTHER AFTERNOON. HEARING AND SEEING THOSE LAUGHS, NEGATIVE COMMENTS COMING FROM AN AUDIENCE THAT WAS SO FAR FROM PERFECT BROUGHT ME BACK TO MY LIFE AND WHAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH BEING MYSELF AND HAVING TO DEAL WITH IGNORANCE AND PREJUDICE ON ALL LEVELS. WHEN SUSAN OPENED HER MOUTH AND LET GO WITH A VOICE FROM HEAVEN, I STARTED CRYING AND SAID “GOOD FOR YOU ALL, NOW YOU LOOK SO DANG STUPID AND FOOLISH, WITH YOUR NEGATIVITY AND UGLY COMMENTS, SERVES YOU RIGHT, SHE IS AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN SHOWING YOU THAT JUDGING A BOOK BY ITS COVER NEVER GETS YOU ANYWHERE.

    THANK GOD FOR HER AND ALL THE ANGELS THAT GOD PUTS ON THIS EARTH. I AM ROOTING FOR YOU SUSAN AND I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A SMILE ON HIS FACE FROM EAR TO EAR.

    THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU.

  2. WOW! I too cried and my heart was so touched with her voice and her story. Lately I have been giving up some of my dreams. I, too, am 47 (really). Her courage has made me start to reconsider that I need to move forward with my dreams that others have and are trying to change.

    I am/was considering settling for less than how God has created me and the purpose God created me for in the Creator’s perfect will. Now I have received the message, three times today, that I am not too old and should not settle for less than the purpose God created me for.
