Hi, friend! You may be reading this in your kitchen, at your desk, or on your phone. The background noise may be Clifford the Big Red Dog, your co-workers, or the beeps of a cash register.
If you’re anything like me, you’re reading in quick glances, in between calling out things like, “Get out of the dog’s water THIS MINUTE. And please go wash your hands!” and “No. Stuffing everything under your bed is not actually cleaning your room. And for crying out loud, what is that wiped on your wall?”
Maybe you’ve stumbled on this site, but deep down you’re thinking, “A God-sized dream? No, thank you. Not for me.”
Maybe you’ve stopped by because God has placed a dream in your heart so scary, you can’t breathe a word of it to anyone.
You might even be wondering, “What in the world is a God-sized dream?”
First, I want to welcome you. And assure you, no matter why you’re here, I truly believe God has a purpose for your visit. It is not on accident.
As Mark Batterson says In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day: “God is in the business of strategically positioning us in the right place at the right time.”
In fact, to take it a step further, you are here, in the world at this point in history, for such as time as this.
And God has good plans for you.
And a purpose only you can fulfill.
For anyone who is doubting any part of that, I want to let you know you’re not alone. I felt this way too. For nearly 40 years, I didn’t have much of a dream. I had an odd restlessness, but nothing I could have called a God-sized dream.
Until God started to change that.
As I grew closer to Him, spent time in His word and in prayer, something amazing happened. A dream began to surface. And I noticed the ways my strengths fit right with it. The things I had long thought were weird, odd, or random — He had a good plan for! I was amazed!
I had counted myself out for so long because I’d mistakenly believed it was only people who could sing beautifully, or paint, or write books that could have a God-sized dream!
If the thought of God-sized dreams raises any of the same doubts, I just want to say there is a special place for you here. We can scoot our deck chairs together, ok?
We have a wonderful team of dreamers who are writing for this site. And between them all, they are at every stage of dreaming. With dreams of all sizes.
We met on Holley Gerth’s God-sized dream team last year, and felt, first-hand, the effect community can have when you’re stepping out into the unknown.
That is what we long to offer here. To support you, through our words, prayers, and friendship. To give you a safe refuge when the winds blow and seas get choppy (which it will at times). A place where people will genuinely cheer over your successes!
And most of all, we pray that through every single God-sized dream ignited, that God would be glorified and the good news of the kingdom spread ever further.
You are a God-sized dreamer, friend. And you are here for such a time as this.
P.S. Tomorrow we’ll be hosting a God-sized dreams link up! Tell us about your dream. Where you are with it – how it’s changed in the last year.
