God-sized Dreams: The Disclaimers

Open Door photo by Ben Zvan I’ve been talking about God-sized Dreams for almost two years now on my blog. And I’m writing a book for Revell on them too.

As I’ve put my pen to paper and fingers to keyboard lately, I’ve realized how differently this journey has turned out from what I’ve expected.

It’s been good, so good, but there are also some things I wish someone had told me when I was getting started.

So, my friends, I’m sharing them with you.

I like to think of them as the Dream Disclaimers {thanks for the phrase, Denise!}

Disclaimer 1: You will never figure out what God is doing.Ever.

I’m the kind of girl who likes to have a strategy. Put it in a mission statement, powerpoint, or at least a well-thought out conversation. Before I ever go on vacation I’ve already picked out where I’ll eat every meal. I want to know the itinerary and the destination.

And I tend to ask God for both of those things. Ladies, He does not cooperate.

When it comes to God-sized Dreams, you might get the next step. You might catch a glimpse of the vision. You might know where you think you’re going. But then…

Our big, mysterious God shows up and you realize you don’t have a clue. His ways are beyond figuring out. This doesn’t mean you’re missing something, doing it wrong, or are wrong the path. It just means He’s God and we’re not.

That’s the best and hardest part all wrapped into one.

Will you read the rest with me on (in)courage today? Oh, thank you! I love when you come with me
