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.
I have dedicated this site to declaring God’s absolute and intimate love for each person. This message has become my passion.
So here’s a question:
Why is this so important?
God loves you; so what? How has knowing His complete and profound love for you made a difference in your life?
I can think of at least a few ways in which I have been impacted by this knowledge:
*I strive much less now: I act and serve BECAUSE I am loved; not in order to earn God’s approval or affection.
*Knowing that Papa God loves me; that I am precious to him gives me security: Things can happen that normally might upset me; people can say things that are less than complimentary: I’m okay because Daddy loves me.
*I have more to give: I get filled up first; then share what I have. This way beats the religious approach of trying to come up with answers or “ministry” on my own!
*I expect more from God: His goodness is far greater than anything I could ever imagine. Trusting His regard for me has opened my heart to Him.
Now it’s your turn. I am hoping to hear from you!
