I’m sharing over at the God Sized Dreams site today – a new home that I’m delighted to write for and share some encouragement about this dream-chasing we’re all doing. I’d love for you to join me over there today – here’s a sneak peek of some of the encouragement I hope you’ll find (be sure to click through to read the rest of the post to find out how I got to this point!)
God’s plans are never ruined because of our actions. They might be delayed, diverted, shifted to a new path but when God calls us to do something, He will find a way to bring us to it. So in those months of job searching and dream searching, He kept me from sinking in the rough waters. Oh, friend – there were rough waters. Scripture doesn’t say God will keep us out of the water – but it says He won’t let us drown, and He won’t leave us.
God had started a course for my life and put a dream on my heart several years ago that He used to lay the foundation for the path He was now asking me to take. I could never have known then that the people God put in my life, the passion He put on my heart, would lead to an open door to a job that feels more like ministry, with co-workers who feel like family.
While I was busy striving and stressing, God was busy behind-the-scenes from my instant gratification eyes, building relationships that would bring healing and redemption to my story – to His plan for my life.
