I just saw Holley Gerth’s blog post on being a God-sized dreamer. God is a big God. He wants to make your big dreams come true. He’s the one who put them there. 🙂
Just this morning, I was sharing in a Facebook forum that I love helping to lift women’s heads to look into God’s face and to see their true identity and greatest potential. God has so much more in store for you, dear friend.
I love what Holley writes here:
A God-sized dream isn’t about what you do as much as how you do it. It’s about pursuing life with passion, purpose, and going with God wherever he leads.
It’s about not settling. It’s about tenaciously believing you’re made for more.
Not as in “bigger house, fancier car, more luxurious lifestyle.”
No, my friend, I mean “more of Jesus, more of what he’s created you to be, more of what he’s called you to do.”
Less of you, actually, and more of all he is and all he has for you—which is beyond what you can even imagine.
What has God created you to be? What has He called you to do? What are His Big Dreams for you? Do you know?
Take time to spend with God so He can show you His Big Dreams for you.
Maybe you do know. Maybe you’ve had those Big Dreams burning in your heart for years.
Maybe you look around at other women and feel like you’re on the outside looking in. The pain goes right through you when you hear of another author whose new book launch is going fabulous or who has 3 (or 6 or 10!) speaking engagements lined up this year.
“When is it my turn, God?”
“God, why are you blessing other speakers, writers, coaches, entrepreneurs, _____ (you fill in the blank of who you envy or feel jealous of) and let them experience their Big Dreams, while I struggle so much?”
Don’t let go of your Big Dreams, dear friend. Keep dreaming. Keep praying.
Keep holding those dreams in your heart. Their time of ripeness will come to pass if you don’t give up.
Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. – James 5:7, NIV
