I sit in front of this screen, watching the cursor blink on the blank page and wonder if I have anything left in me to offer on this subject of God Sized Dreams. This heart that has traveled some weary, wonderful, unexpected roads over the last two years is starting to feel restless again. Like a traveler longing for the next adventure into the new and uncharted, I feel anxious and hopeful and more than a little fear.
It’s time to dream again.
The big, bold, so-scary-only-God-can-do-it kind of dreams that make absolutely no sense but keep you awake at night as the possibilities swirl tirelessly through your mind. The kind of dreams that can paralyze you into inaction if you don’t take the most important action and hand it all back over to God.
It’s time to move on.
Not because it’s the beginning of the year and every one is making goals to move more, be more, do more, lose more. But because God is saying to my heart, in all His wisdom and love for me, that in order to make room in my life for what He has next, I need to let go. These first nudges of the dream? They don’t come with a manual and an agenda and a timeline. They come one small piece at a time.
Step 1: make room.
Step 2: wait.
So on a wintery Friday afternoon I sent emails that created some margin in my schedule and in my soul, trusting that God had released me to move forward to whatever it is He has next. I realized that saying “no” is more terrifying than saying “yes.” What if no other doors are opened? What if I just said “no” to the wrong thing?
Will you join me over at God Sized Dreams today to read the rest? I’d just love to see you there!
