I feel like dreaming big
and sharing those big dreams with you.
There's some, no there's a bunch, of fear,
but I'm just going to
because I think it's important
for all us.
I am hesitant to dream out loud
And I'm trying to figure out why.
I think I associate dreaming big
As if what I have is not enough.
As if I want more, more, more.
But that's not it. at all.
Dreaming big dreams is not the opposite of contentment.
Unthankfulness is the opposite of contentment.
Contentment is rooted in gratitude. and peace.
And stuffing the dreams that God has planted in my heart,
Not using the gifts that he has given me
to fulfill those dreams,
is not humility.
It's fear and unfaithfulness.
I really believe that if I
lay my dreams down before the Lord
and commit them to him,
they may not happen the way I expect,
but his plans for me will always be better
than the ones I have for myself.
(even when I don't get it)
It's okay to dream big.
This is my bigger picture moment.
Shelley has been a huge inspiration
to me to not be afraid
to dream big
and to share those dreams
Kelly Rae always has great things to say about this.
Especially this post on abundance.
