Trusting God With Your Dreams
Dreams are a fragile thing. Like the bubbles blown from plastic wands when we were children. They don't start out as anything special; then the light catches them just right and they shimmer a rainbow of colors, transformed into something beautiful. Every once in a while, if we're lucky, one lands quivering in our hand bringing wonder and amazement.
I've had a dream for awhile now. One I've nursed and coddled, and been too afraid to share. Afraid that it would pop, or worse yet, that others would not see the beauty in it.
I've prayed over this dream for years, wrestled with it, longed for it and run from it. Scared of failing. I've skirted the edges, dipped my toes in and then retreated to where I am safe and comfortable. And all this time the Lord has been prodding me to leave the safe and the mundane, to step out in obedience and faith. So I am. And it's hard. Hard to fully give over this fragile dream to God and trust that He cares about it as much as I do, even more. I'm finally ready to blow this bubble of a dream from my own hand and watch God's light transform it, and hopefully, I will be transformed as well.
My dream? To write. To write a novel filled with truth and hope that will encourage young women as they navigate that exhilarating and daunting whirlwind that is college.
Will I be published? I hope so, but truth be told I don't know what will happen. I just know I need to be obedient to do what the Lord has placed on my heart. So, for now, I will put my fingers to these keys and write, all while doing my best to trust the Lord.
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." Ephesians 3:20
