You see, I am adamant, never, ever, spend a penny to get past a level. With this in mind, I was stuck on level 212, I think, for months and months. It got the point where I would only play a game to two if I was waiting for something to load or had absolutely nothing else to do.
One day, I made a move that triggered a whole cascade of events. THEN, much to my surprise, without doing much of anything else, I got through the level. In the past few day, I've gone through several levels where the exact same thing happened.
It occurred to me, life can be the same way. You plug along at something, not taking the easy way, seemingly getting nowhere. Then, one day the sky opens up and pours out a blessing. Not to say that defeating a level in candy crush is a blessing, but the insight it gave me certainly is.
Never give up on a dream. Even if it appears to be going nowhere, you don't know what God is doing behind the scenes. You may be missing a miracle by giving up just before you make that miracle making move that pushes you to the next level.
Fantasizing the freedom to believe what I do makes a difference toward my dreams.
