I have several nieces and nephews. A few years ago I asked them what they dreamed of being when they grew up. It was unanimous—all of them wanted to work at Chuck E. Cheese!
I mentioned that to them again last Christmas (they’re all older now) and they just looked at me like I was crazy.
But back then I imagine there were some prayers going up along the lines of, “God, please let me work at Chuck E Cheese one day!”
Those kind of dreams start in our hearts and then we ask God to bless them. They’re about us. God-sized dreams are ultimately about Him.
One of my little girl dreams was to grow up and become a writer. And it actually turned out to be a God-sized dream too. Even when that dream is difficult or challenging, I feel compelled to keep pursuing it.
Another God-sized dream I have right now that hasn’t worked out at all in the way I imagined is being a mom. I still don’t know the ending to that story.
I feel like God has assured me that I’m a mother in the Kingdom as I give birth to words…whether that is the full answer to the dream or not I don’t know yet.
There all different types of God-sized dreams—some start when we are young, others come along later in life, some are easy, some are hard.
But they have this in common…
God-sized dreams start in His heart and then He places them in ours.
