I imagine what it might be like to have all the doors opened. The God Sized Dreams realized, the checkboxes marked off. I wonder what it would be like to wake up in the morning, every morning, knowing that I get to spend my waking hours doing what I’ve been created to do.
My mind wanders a lot.As I sit in traffic or drive between offices. I wonder what God has next for my family. I imagine scenarios and jump to conclusions and make up conversations. I plan what I would say “if,” or what I would do “when” and I imagine that I am eloquent, witty, full of grace and a smart comeback and perfect timing.
Right now the only thing I can do is try to wrap my mind around what the future holds. On this side of heaven I’ll never know the behind the scenes work that goes on as God makes beauty and good plans from my mess. One day I imagine I might be given a glimpse of the “why” – why I was asked to wait. Why I was never given that opportunity or why I was given this other one.
I am trying to learn the lessons, imagining that it means there are things I need to know before I can move on to the next thing, and maybe eventually I’ll believe it and see it and share the legacy & the testimony. And I’ll stop imagining and start living it.
