Big Hairy Audacious Dreams || Encouragement For The Dreamer

One day earlier this year, for the first time in 9 years of marriage, I realized maybe it wasn’t my husband that needed to be on my page, but maybe me that needed to be on his. Maybe he wans’t the one that needed the heart change or to be seeking after what God wants from him. Maybe it was me. Maybe I was the one that needed to listen to what God was speaking to me. Maybe it was me who needed to listen.

All this time, God needed to bring me to a less selfish, more selfless place. He needed me to witness my excess & my need for comfort. Realizing that it’s not about having the house I’ve always dreamed of & maybe a house that is sufficent to serve others through. It’s not about having extra income to buy things we want, but extra income to buy what others need. Extra money to bless others even if for just a day.

His dream…his dream that’s not possible without God, to help people. To buy what people need without regard to amount.

My dream… my dream that’s not possible without God, to develop relationships with people & help them know this crazy big God that I know.

What about you…what is your dream? Is your dream in line with how God asks us to live? My initial dream wasn’t & even now, as this community develops I see that some of my desires for this place aren’t exactly lining up with the way God has told his people to live.
