DREAMS AND DESTINY

What are your dreams?
Can you think of a time when an idea, however fleeting captured your imagination?  What was your response?  Have you given value to what seemed like small ideas?

 

Do you find yourself wondering about possibilities?

 

God wove dreams and the ability to find them into each of us.  HE always has a way to direct us to destiny and purpose.  This is a foundational part of how we are built.

 

Make sure your dreams match who you are, not who you aren’t.  I am guessing that most of us have tried to do things that really didn’t match our passions, gifting and skills, only to discover that we felt drained, instead of fulfilled.

 

It is appropriate to serve someone else’s dream, but only when it is what God is directing us to do at the time.  Even at that, this season of service will be part of building our own destiny.

 

One of the most formidable barriers to realizing dreams is unfinished business, however that is being lived out.    Our very freedom is taken from us; even having a sense of what we want seems to die.  “Don’t decorate your cell.”
Cells can be past experiences, things we don’t seem to resolve or overcome…”

 

 

Some writing to do
1.  List things you did or were interested in as a small child.
2.  What are your gifts what are you doing that uses them?
3.  What ideas do you have?

 

Lord, lift us up to Your level of dreaming.

Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
