God-sized dreams…aren’t one size fits all

Vintage dress pattern photo by Laineys Repertoire (flickr) My friend Kim and I ventured out for a little resale shopping recently. One particular store had a hot pink neon sign, loud music, and gum-popping teenagers behind the counters.

I tried on my usual size but it seemed those jeans must have been designed for Barbie. At any rate, my hips weren’t having any of it

So I reached for a shirt that looked more like a bib. That was followed by a dress that would have barely covered my bellybutton. Ahem.

When it comes to dreams, it seems to go much the same way. I think, “Oh, that dream looks so cute on her! I want that one too!” So I try it on and it doesn’t fit my heart any better than those jeans fit my hips. 

I keep trying other dreams until I sink to the floor of life’s dressing room in discouragement. Or worse yet, I go out looking like someone Stacey and Clinton should nab for What Not to Wear as quickly as possible.

But I’m learning something beautiful. Although God’s dreams aren’t one size fits all like I sometimes wish they could be, He’s created particular ones just for us and they fit who we are perfectly.

We don’t have to settle for off-the-rack dreams or someone else’s discards. No, ma’am, we’ve got a divine tailor who does nothing but high end, one-of-a-kind couture.

True God-sized dreams feel like they’re made just for you…

because they are.

And you’re made just for them, just for Him, too.

Now that’s simply stunning.
