Do you have a dream?
Not a “maybe I will get around to this someday” kind of dream.
A different kind of dream.
The kind you don’t dare speak out loud into words for others to hear.
The kind hidden deep in your heart. So deep you don’t even know how to describe it.
That was me. Is me sometimes. Even now.
Even now that God has gotten ahold of my heart, turned me inside out with his unfathomable grace, and poured me out ready to share.
But I know it’s there.
This God-sized dream.
Yes, sometimes hidden away. But not quite as buried as before.
And something stirs in me. Something.
The something I’m learning to listen to again. Or someone rather.
It’s the still small voice of the One who births the kinds of dreams within us that are at times bursting to come out and other times buried beneath layers and layers of the everyday.
But it’s time, friends.
Time to dig up the dream. To unearth the seed of wonder and mystery and life. To welcome it back to the world.
It’s time to nurture it, to let it grow into the fullness of what God has for you and your life.
No more hiding.
No more excuses.
Our lives, poured out for Him and His glory.
His power at work within us.
It’s time to pursue our God-sized dreams.
One. step. at. a. time.
Release fear. Walk in faith. Embrace freedom.
And take that first step. Secure in the One whose power is at work within us!
Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us; glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations, forever and always. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 CEB
