Thomas Edison was awesome

There's this really great Thomas Edison quote about how opportunity is usually disguised as work, and I really love that idea. 
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
There is so much opportunity in life today, but so many people miss out on all the potential because they're afraid to do the work that is required to actually succeed at their dreams. 
Dream big. Then do the work.
I think it's really important for us to have big dreams. Impossible, never gonna happen without an act of God kind of dreams. Our God is an amazing god and he loves us so much and wants to give us things. But it's not a prosperity gospel: we have to put in the work, and surrender everything to him, and he will give us the desires of our hearts.
Delight yourself in the Lordand he will  give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 ESV)
There's a caveat there though: we have to give our hearts to him first. If I give my heart to Jesus, he will change it and mould it and shape it to suit heaven, not the world. He will plant seeds in me and then water then and watch them grow. He will give me the desire of my heart, but that desire will not necessarily be what I expect it to be.
