Hey there sweet friend…

5 Mar
Hey there sweet friend…

I am so glad you came over to my place today. Let me give you a big ol’ hug. I’ve made us something hot, frothy, and chocolate to drink complete with marshmallows and a sweet treat to eat with it. We’re going to have a seat over here on my comfy couch together. I even have a quilt for your lap as it is a bit chilly and rainy here today.

I’d like to take a moment to speak to your heart. 
I am going to hold your hand and might even get a little weepy as I share, 
but I put a box of tissues nearby for the both of us.

You…my friend…my sister…are a treasure.
We have been walking together for some time now
and I can’t thank God enough for the gift of you.

I have watched as God has done a mighty work both in you and through you. You have come through so much and chase after Him so hard. He has placed a dream in your heart that only you can do. You are called and chosen, my friend. 

I have watched you struggle with this God-sized dream. Not quite sure if you can do it. Not quite sure if you heard Him right. Hearing others say that it isn’t for you. Hearing the voice of the enemy in your head. You know…that tape that plays in your head that knows your weakness and tells you that you aren’t enough, you don’t have what it takes, that this dream isn’t for you. 

Well let me tell you something sister…
God has been speaking to your heart about this dream for some time now. Sometimes in whispers. Sometimes in shouts. But He has called you for this. 
This big, God-sized dream is for you. He wants to use you. He already is in so many incredible ways.

Sister-friend…
Stand on His promises today.
Take hold of what He has called you to do and fly.
You can do this.
You were made for this.
…for such a time as this.
And I am right here holding your hand.
With you.
And so is He.

God-Sized Dreams

My friend Holley Gerth invited me to join a group of dreamers that she affectionately calls her God Sized Dream Team. What a blessing to be part of this group. 
We will be gathering each week on Tuesdays at Holley’s to encourage each other and you to dream those God sized dreams.

Won’t you join us?
What is your God-sized dream?

Blessings,

    Thank you, thank you! I needed this today. My Mom was diagnosed with vascular dementia today, so I am not so thrilled with this time in my life, but know that God has a great plan for my family and I. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂
