Some days it seems the dreams in your heart take wings and just want you to fly to their fulfilled destination. Other days seem lacking in the ability to dream at all. I've been dreaming a lot lately, and thankfully not of the while-I'm-sleeping variety.
Dreaming can be a tricky thing. It is hard to have hope and faith mixed with a healthy does of reality without cynicism.
What is it that you are holding close to your heart?
I love taking those close-to-my-heart thoughts to God. To lay them at His feet and to see what He would choose to do. I'm learning to take small steps of faith and listen to the things that are burdening my heart. I want these things in my heart to be from Him and for Him.
There are moments when it seems my heart will burst with feeling God's presence and inspiration pouring ideas as fast as I can write them down. Those are the highs. And, there are lows too. When fear and comparison steal my peace.
I am just about to finish 31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and Doer. It has been so good, I may just close the back cover and open the front cover to start all over again. I have realized how much I love that phrase "dreamer and doer" and how I feel so at home in that description. It tells you who I am and it "gets" me.
Just a few thoughts from my calm and quiet thinking tonight.
