On Wednesdays we are thrilled to fling open the doors to all of YOU! We love hearing your dreaming stories…the lessons you’ve learned, the roads you’ve walked, the dreams He’s planted in your hearts! Today we are excited to welcome Crystal Stine back to God-sized Dreams. She shares her superpower of cheerleading and reminds us all that as we chase the dreams our Father has given us, we are always stronger together!
Today, I’m cheering for you. For the ones who chase dreams bravely even when you don’t have all the answers. For the ones who seek God, flat out and down on your face before the throne because you’ve had a glimpse of His dream for your life and you don’t know how to take the first step. I’m cheering for you, sister – you who wake up, take care of your family, put in a long day of work and carve out time in the margins to pursue your dreams.
Today, I’m praying for you. For the ones who think that their time to dream has passed. For the ones who think that there isn’t enough time in the day to add a God-sized dream, for the ones who feel like they aren’t good enough to be given a dream to chase. I’m praying for you, sister – you who watch from the sidelines and wonder if…when…how…
In this sisterhood of dream chasers we stand together. (<====Tweet this.)
It’s not about leading or following but holding hands and walking along side, because we can’t do this without one another. Proverbs 27:17 says “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” By ourselves we can check the boxes and complete the tasks, but it is community that makes us stronger, sharper, shining brighter for the Kingdom. Your courage to chase your God-sized dream gives me strength.
Your passion to find time on the fringes of your day-to-day inspires me.
Your faithful dedication to seek the face of the Father and His will encourage me.
Your story, the lessons you’ve learned, the failures you’ve experienced, they equip me.
The God-sized dream you have, the passions and talents God has given you, on the surface they might look the same as what someone else is already doing. Don’t give up. Your dream is uniquely yours to chase. (<====Tweet this.) We need your voice, your creativity, your version of your dream that God knew could only come from you.
So today, I cheer for you. I pray for you. I stand beside you knowing that somewhere along this God-sized dream journey I’ll need you to hold my hand – and sometimes even hold my arms up high when I feel like I can’t possibly go on. And as we journey together we’ll forget if you’re helping me or I’m helping you and we’ll realize that we’re simply stronger, together.
Journey on, sister.
