God Sized Dream


It's Tuesday. Time for a post about God-Sized Dreaming. This comes from Holley Gerth’s new book, You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream: Opening the Door to All God Has for You.

This week’s assignment: "Pay it forward. You’ve been encouraged in your God-sized dreams by your sisters here the last few months. How can you spread that encouragement forward by investing in other dreamers? It can be small and simple or BIG and wild. Ask God what you can do and get creative. Then write a post about what you’re doing". Holly Gerth

It started with one.
It usually does doesn't it? One thing, one word, one look, one instance....that changes everything.
It was one post that God used as He opened up the door to what He would call me back to......Christine Wright. She wrote a post for (in) Courage.  I read it.  It changed everything.  I saw someone who's words gave voice to what my heart was feeling.  And if someone else had walked this path and survived....thrived, then perhaps I could too.  One blog opened the door to others....words and women and others....I was not alone (and I wasn't crazy!!).
So when He called me back to blogging, asking me to put a voice to my words, I felt less alone, less unqualified, because others went before me.
So today, if you are seeing this, then I know God has a plan for HIS words, through my life, for your heart :)
On the days where you feel less than ok, wonder if there will ever be something more than this, right now, there will be.  But what I am slowly learning to do is live right right here.  Believing that if God did it once, He can do it again.  And if it is His will and I am seeking Him, then it's all in His hands.  If you are wondering if you will ever feel good enough, pretty enough, strong enough, prepared enough...in the natural, maybe not always, but through God's eyes, you are ALL these things.  Because you are His.  Everyday.  You're His baby girl :)  Today know that no matter what YOU feel, HE says your perfect.  Just like you are, just where you are, because when our less than is wrapped in His greater than....amazing things can happen!

I like texting :) I never thought I would say that!  But I like texting those special to me and telling them good morning, sharing a verse or perhaps just telling them I love them!  And they love me even if I do text at 4 am ;) They know it's just me.  Words heal.  Words share His truth.  Words change everything.  So if you need some extra encouragement, share your email with me :) I like writing back and forth!  You can reach me at hooahsgirl@me.com
