. . . Do you feel the urge to dream, but don’t have a vision of what that could be?
You know, it could be YOU ARE the dream! You being YOU in the lives of others... ...through your vulnerability and strength... ...through your humility and confidence... ...through your quirks and qualities... YOU cultivate and create ripples into waves. Why? People are watching. They soak in what you emanate. As you grow in your relationship with God, obedience, and fruitfulness...the dreams...the passion...the calling unfold.
Sometimes, we get too focused on honing in and identifying a singular dream or calling to step into purpose. Especially, the way society and social media proclaim attaining a dream. But, Friend, I really want you to know how truly valuable you are, and the impact you can have just existing as the unique, child of God that you are in this very moment and very season -- ...That winning smile with glowing presence you bring to the cashier line when the barista takes the 757th order... ...The way you acknowledge someone’s day and something they did well as you sit and wait patiently at the doctor’s office... ...The friendship you give to another as you offer empathy in pain and joy through experiences... ...The time you take to really listen to a prayer request and through your insight know just what to offer through service and thoughtfulness... ...The card you write in the days of texting... ...I could go on and on! Why?! There is SO MUCH opportunity to be had!! Look past the achieving success stories...the written down, recordable glories...the things that can be framed...the wiggle room tightly reigned...and when you think that the dream is foggy and unclear...I believe you just need to look in the mirror. YOU are a Stirring Ember. 🔥
