It was last January when Holley Gerth kicked off a year of God-sized dreams with these words,
“I’m inviting you to open the door to a God-sized dream in 2013.”
Scary words. What did it mean? Did we have a God-sized dream? Were we capable of acting on that little seed of hope in our heart?
But we did just that. Some, cautious at first, merely cracking open the door to glance at what might stand on the other side, and others, throwing open the door wide. Throughout the next six months, we joined together on Tuesdays to write about our journey.
In the middle of our stories of setbacks and success, of fears and fearlessness, of trust and terror, we saw God work. In each of the stories, God showed up in dreamers lives. Regardless of whether we understood the reason or the end goal, each and every dreamer stepped out in faith.
God sees that faith.
God-sized dreams isn’t a gimmick.
God loves dreams.
And He loves dreamers.
Isaiah 64 says that He’s ready to blow your hair back:
For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
you came down,
and the mountains trembled before you.
Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.
Isaiah 64:3-4 (NIV)
He acts. On our behalf. So today we invite you share your God-sized Dreams stories from 2013.
For some of us dreamers, the dream was more than we could ask or imagine. For others, the dream changed entirely. And for yet another group, God said wait, for now, dear one.
As Holley says, “The happy, the hard and everything in between.”
