“Here comes that dreamer!” they said to each other. “Come now, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns and say that a ferocious animal devoured him. Then we’ll see what comes of his dreams.”
Genesis 37:19 (NIV)
In his book, Put Your Dream to the Test, Dr. John Maxwell writes “You will fulfill your dream and live the life for which God created you only after you figure it out.” I don’t entirely agree. A year ago I knew only that writing was therapeutic. I did not know that it would deepen my faith and change my life. I did not know that joining a book launch team would lead me down paths I didn’t know existed. I didn’t need to know the details, and my dreams aren’t entirely figured out yet, But God. So, a dream I didn’t entirely see and couldn’t execute alone is here. Dream ON!
Today my girls and I launch a dream-GodSizedDreams.com. Led in prayer and adventure by founder Christine Wright, we’re off to inspire each other and you too in shaping, pursuing, and achieving your dreams, even if you don’t know what they are.
God speaks to me in so many ways, including through the words of a Buddhist proverb to which I return regularly,
If you are facing in the right direction, all you need to do is keep walking.
One of the many things I find so remarkable about knowing God is that His lessons are, like Him, Omnipresent… right in front of you. You simply have to be ready to receive them. Dream ON!
An act of faith allowed me to come out of hiding, and that choice, and the ones that followed make me who I now am. The Writer. The Faithwalker. I like her. Actually, I love her, my own special gift from God. And that simple act of faith, that embrace of Grace, is certain evidence that God loves me, whether I’m great, whether I’m good, or still very much a work in progress. With dreams I haven’t even framed, haven’t even fully conceived yet, but I’m not afraid to have. You can dream like that too; we are here to cheer you forward, help you out, show you that failure is never final. Be an Optimist…do you know who they are? Those who figure that taking backward steps after moving forward DOES NOT mean disaster…it means you’re dancing!
