What societal issues move you to tears, joy, indignation, etc..? Such feelings are clues to your purpose. Your purpose comes from God, and you are created to be a solution to some need in the world that matters to God.
Stated differently, your solutions to world needs are dreams that come from God. Your target may be as laser-focused as one person, as broad as the world, or somewhere in between. Your dreams matter.
Remember, God equipped you to succeed in addressing needs connected to your gifting. Whatever your gifts, no matter how insignificant they may appear to you, they are powerful. Your gifts have the power to overcome the needs pitted against them and propel you to amazing levels of success.
Various translations of Proverbs 18:16 speak of the ability of gifts to make room for you and bring you before great people.
I believe your greatest fulfillment and success are found in execution of your gifts and God-given dreams. The same God who gave you the dreams is well able to bring them to pass (Hebrews 10:23 and Romans 4:18-21). Especially when circumstances seem to be most bleak, let's be like Abraham and entrust our dreams to God.
God is faithful!
