At one time or another, you have dreamed a dream… A role you would love to play if you only could. Now, for many of us, that dream is dead and buried. Gone the way of the Dodo bird! Never to return!!
But, what if that dream was meant to be a reality? Could it be resurrected? We think to ourselves , “oh if only it could! But, I have a good job, family …, responsibilities….etc. How could my dream possibly come true now?”
So you push it back down to the recesses of your heart and move forward in duty and obligation, settling for a safer and smaller part in the story that is your life.
But, let me ask you this!
What will it take for you to live from your heart? To come alive to the role you have buried inside you? When will you stop submitting to your excuses , your fears and your rational- logical thinking?
Now, I am not promoting being foolish and rash! Making any good and meaningful change is a process. It begins in your heart, moves to your mind, then your voice and finally your feet.
Maybe you are one of the rare few who are living from your heart and have found the role you were meant to play! That’s awesome! Then this message is not for you! Or is it? Maybe God has even bigger plans for you! Are you walking in such a way that you are following His lead… Listening to and obeying the Spirits prompts? What if God wants to use you to help others live from their hearts- pursuing their dreams?
But , I dare say that most of us have settled and have become miserably complacent.
We have become ” comfortable in our uncomfortableness”! Afraid to change, to step out, to overcome!
I pray that you will take this message to heart – whatever part of it that applies to you. One final question! What is keeping you from adopting this saying?
- The Glory of God is Man Fully Alive!
It is time that all Gods children come alive! What my are you waiting for?
May I suggest a couple of passages to get you started?
20 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, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
New Living Translation (NLT)
28 And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.
