There’s a new social influencer in town.

On Sunday, the page shared an advice about seizing one’s dreams.
“Hold fast to your dreams and keep them close to your heart. If they’re important to you, they’re important to God. He gives you dreams to give you hope and inspiration so He can surprise you with His miracles. Take heart. God-sized dreams do not come easy, they are loaded with difficulties. Be not disappointed when your dreams are delayed or even denied, which most often happen. He uses delays and denials to refine you and your talents so He can accomplish His will through your disappointment, not in spite of it. No matter if your dreams may seem just outside your reach, they are worth praying about. He listens. He gives power to your dreams.” Blessed Sunday, everyone.
