Something I am learning is how to dream big. Dreams that are so big they are impossible without God!
In January, God told me to dream big and I have been trying to figure out what my dreams are ever since. In figuring out my dreams, I am realizing what my passions are.
My passion is to be a life coach. I want to be someone people can come to, to encourage them and help them along their life journey to create goals and accomplish those goals and attain the dreams they have.
While I was on the World Race, I had the opportunity to walk alongside people on their journey, encouraging them, asking them needed questions, pointing them toward their end goal or reminding them to stay focused on the present and I LOVED it! It wasn’t until my World Race coach told me I should become a life coach that I knew what I was doing and what I loved actually had a name and a profession! Who knew?!
With discovering my passion I am learning how to dream. I want to have a career in life coaching and make it my own. I also want to have a beach house where people can come for a place of rest and enjoy God’s beautiful creation. Sitting on the back porch with a cup of coffee in their hand while looking out over the ocean and sitting in the peace and presence of God! Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
I know I can dream bigger. I know this is only a fraction of the dreams I can have with God on my side.
Are you a dreamer?
God wants us to dream. He wants us to do big things for his kingdom. We must believe that anything is possible with God by our side.
In Genesis 12:1-3, God tells Abram that he will bless him and his name with be known among the nations
“Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ ”
God didn’t say it would be easy. Along the way to your dreams you will have people who will try to bring you down and stir you away from your dream. They will make fun of you, be negative, but don’t let that come between you and your dream!
Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”
Have dreams, and make sure they are according to God’s plan. How do you do that, you may ask? Well, ask him! We can talk to God like we talk to a person standing right beside us. We have access to him 24/7. Sit and be still and listen to the voice of the Lord. He will tell you what to do. And if you spend time with him and delight in him, your heart and his heart will be in tune and his desires will be your desires.
Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
DREAM GOD-SIZED DREAMS!
You can do it!
