When I was a little girl, I felt so free to dream! I would tell everyone I wanted to be an archeologist because I desired to excavate the bones of Jesus Christ. Every time I said it with so much conviction that no one would dare to tell me I couldn’t. Until my mom one day told me Jesus Christ had risen from the dead, Body and Soul. To be honest, I felt a little dreamless for a bit.
Could this have happened to you, too?
They don’t believe who you say you are. Maybe you don’t believe who you say you are. You say “I’m an entrepreneur” or maybe an artist, or a founder of a non-profit, or simply a woman with a dream. You feel all eyes looking at you with a doubtful gaze, you hear their discouraging words, you fall captive to their scoffing attitude. Yet in your heart, the dream remains.
Are you who you say you are?
This is for my sister with a dream: God does not put desires in your heart He does not intend to fulfill (Philippians 1:6 and Psalm 145:19). Desires come from the Father. We are invited to carry out our God-given dreams, and they will produce ripple effects in the story of salvation.
Not everyone will support your dream. Not everyone will understand your dream. Not everyone will join your dream. Not everyone will believe in your dream. But you must fight for it.
Forgetting or abandoning your dream because you are clinging to who they say you are can be God’s way of sanctifying you and your pathway to holiness. You are given a chance to turn to Him and ask, “Who do You say that I am?”
And He will say to you in your heart: You are my child, my disciple, my heir. You will be built back up, you will walk in wisdom, and your dreams will be multiplied for My glory.
Now, disciple of Christ, dear sister of mine, what is your dream?What is your dream? // Kiki Rocha Click To Tweet
Lord Jesus, help me dream with You.
