God has a dream for you. It's not the dream you thought you dreamed. It's the one hidden in your little girl heart. Yeah. That one. The one you pushed aside, writing it off as impossible.
Dreamer, that dream, that one right there, the one you don't want to show the world, the one you had before you knew anything of idols, that's God's dream for you, with all of it's impossibilities.
And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”
(Mark 14:36 ESV)
It was planted right there before you were even born. You've been doing bits and pieces of it your whole life, you just didn't realize how it would all come together. Like Joseph, you have to open your hand. Surrender your dream to him, it's so hard, I know it's so precious to you, but it's even more precious to God. I promise, he won't hurt it, he's just going to shine it up a little. Make it brighter and more wonderful than you could possibly imagine.
It's going to feel like he took it away. Like you're wandering in the desert, but there is a promised land hear on earth, it's your God-Sized dream. Every morning you wake up, you have work to do dreamer. You're still in this foreign land because you have work to do.
Know that God has given you a dream, and if you listen, if you wait on that still small voice, when you feel that gentle nudge of your heart go. Step out in faith, and know that there will always be solid ground under your feet. He is timely in his provision. He is loving in his teaching.
Pray for Faith dreamer. He will teach you . It will be painful and drawn out sometimes, sometimes He'll do it "quick like a band-aid," sometime it will bring you to your knees in joyful tears. It will be healing, refining, and it will bring Him SO much glory.
Go out into the world with your dream in your hand. Tell His-story. Seek God and Serve Him always.
Love Your Heart.
