Pssst! It’s time.
We’ve come to the end of the book. Have you been waiting?
Are you holding your breath?
Are you standing at the edge of your dream trying to decide if now is the time?
If you’ve followed through this entire series on Holley’s book, You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream, you already know what you need to do. It’s time to take the step off the edge and into the unknown. It’s time to put your dream into motion, to move from believing to seeing. You already know what awaits you.
You know that you’re going to have to face the chihuahuas of fear that will be your constant companions.
You know you might face opposition from unexpected places.
You know that you might be the only one in the room passionate about this dream.
You also know that you were made for this.
You know that you’re not alone because the Giver of the dream is cheering for you (and all of us here at GSD are, too!)
You know that all the experiences you’ve had up until now have been preparing you for this moment.
You were created and placed on this planet for such a time as this.
It’s your time to shine.
What are you waiting for?
Perhaps you’re a little like me. Have you had the dream for a long time but years and seasons have seen it moved to the back-burner? Your dream baby is back there somewhere…it isn’t fresh anymore, but it still burns inside you. You’ve been in a holding pattern for quite some time. That’s me, too.
I was part of the launch team for You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream. Holley asked our group what our dreams were, and she walked us through a lot of these exercises and gently pushed us out. My dream of publishing a book on raising a traumatized child was there then and it still is now. It wasn’t time then for that particular dream to take flight. I watched as others from the God-sized Dream Team saw their dreams come to fruition, and I felt denied. When would it be my turn?
Recently, I was at a large conference and one of the speakers, Albert Tate, said this, “You may have been delayed, but you have not been denied.” He was talking about dreams and encouraging those of us who have had our dream or vision sitting on a shelf, gathering dust, to not abandon that dream…fulfillment is on the way. The time for your dream will come because it doesn’t originate or end with you; it’s all about the Dream-Giver.
So I want to say the same to you.

Is it your time, sweet friend, to reach for the dream…to blow off the dust and step forward? You can hold my hand if you need to because I’m blowing the dust off my manuscript and starting to work on it again, and I could use a hand-holder.
My son is almost twenty now. We’ve learned so much in the years that this dream has been on hold. Our relationship with him is different and growing. He is the one who stood in my kitchen and said, “Mom, it really is time to write that book. People need to know how it is.”
Is it your season? Is it time RIGHT NOW to get on board with that dream? Does it need to marinate a little longer? That’s valid, but don’t let it discourage you. Be discerning!
There is a great cloud of witnesses cheering you on. The world needs you to do this. Your country, your city, your neighborhood, your friend needs you to do this. You are part of a greater puzzle that we haven’t seen the picture for.
Only you can add your piece.
We’re all waiting to see you step off that cliff and fly.
Go get ’em, friend!
