As women chatter online about their God-sized dreams, I notice a quieter conversation taking place at the same time. It slips into my inbox through emails, finds its way to the comment sections on my blog, and is even whispered over the phone by friends in my real life.
Everywhere I hear this same question:
What if I don’t know what my God-sized dream is right now?
If that’s you as you’re beginning this journey, then know you’re not alone. Lots of your sisters are with you.
And even if you’re totally clear about your God-sized dream right now, there may be a time when you’re not as sure.
So let me lean in and gently whisper to your heart words you need to hear now… or words you can tuck away into your heart for later:
Don’t worry, beautiful friend. You really do have a God-sized dream. (<=== Click to tweet)
Because all God-sized dreams are ultimately just this: a desire for more of what God has for you. And you want that, don’t you? Yep, I thought so. (<=== Click to tweet)
Some of us have specific ways we want to experience what God has for us, like a particular calling or project. But really, at the heart of all God-sized dreams, is the same ultimate goal…to make life an intimate adventure with God.
In many ways, God-sized dreaming is more about an attitude than an action. It’s living out an ongoing “yes” to whatever God asks of you.
It means choosing faith over fear.
It means moving forward instead of holding back.
It means believing God can accomplish His purposes for your life-no matter how hard things are right now.
Jesus said the two most important things in life are these: Love God, love people (Mark 12:30-31). That’s true of every God-sized dream. So if you’re not sure what words or goals to put to your dream yet, start here. Simply say, “My dream is to grow in my love for God and people.”
That’s your heart isn’t it? What you really want? I may not know you, but I believe that’s true of you.
Over the next few weeks, you may get more details about what your God-sized dream is. Or it might stay vague. Either one is okay. You might discover you have one big dream that stands out or lots of smaller dreams. That’s okay too.
Where we’re going is more about the journey than the destination. Even those of us who think we know where God is leading are probably going to be surprised where we end up. (Yes, I speak from experience on that one. Ha!)
So will you take this journey with me, sister? Even if you don’t know exactly where it’s leading?
I can promise you’ll be heading somewhere good. Because God is good.
And He’s the very best dream of all.
