Living the "Dream Life"
"Will he delight himself in the Almighty?
Will he always call upon God?"
- Job 27:10 -
Hello there! Glad you visited my blog today! :)
This post is short and sweet with some truths that God spoke to my heart the other day that I needed to hear! I trust that you are blessed by them too!
I was having a rough day recently. I was overwhelmed by a bunch of things that I shouldn't have been, but was nonetheless. I was tired, and yet my brain was whirling around with life things. It was driving me kinda crazy. Lol. So, I decided to "grab" the specific life dreams and desires that were spinning around haphazardly in my brain and give them specifically to God. "God, here is my "______ dream" - take it and have Your will in it!" etc. It felt good. It was good. God's hands were and are bigger than my brain tornados. Lol! He can hold my dreams and desires better than I can and He has the miraculous power to fulfill them, change them or "morph" them into what they should be! His ways are perfect!
It's so important to give God your dreams and desires, because when you do, your life purpose becomes focused on what is most important - loving life in God's perfect will!
That is truly living the dream life!!!!
Also, on that same rough day, God sent me an encourager to lift me up and re-focus my heart and eyes on what they needed to be focused on! A dear friend that I haven't seen in two years, that I met in Colombia on a mission trip, called me. (Perfect timing - God timing!) She encouraged me, not knowing that I was having a rough day. My heart felt like God had bear-hugged it! I told her that I was discouraged and it was of God that she had called. Her next words wow-ed me out and left me in awe of the powerful truth that they held. She said, "Don't be discouraged! Today is a day for living out God's dreams!" Whoa. That was an amazing perspective to me! I needed that!!! Most of the time, I'm focused on MY dreams and MY desires and yes, genuinely wanting God's will for them, but I've never really thought of how God has dreams and desires for me today! It was so amazing to think that as I'm living in obedience to Him and fixing my eyes on Him first and foremost, above ALL else - I'm fulfilling the GOD OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE AND ETERNITY'S dreams-that are in regards to me! Say whaaaaat?!!! THAT IS AWESOME! His dreams and desires for me are to know Him and make Him known! His heart is for me to delight in Him and then experience my desires become His desires and His desires become my desires! (simply mind-blowing amazing! LOL!)
That too is more of what it TRULY is to be "living the dream life"!!!!! Wow. Life - Is - GOOD!!!!!
