Say “Yes” Anyway

God-sized Dreams by Holley Gerth3

The moment you dare to speak a dream or desire there will be other words that come too. Word like “What if…” or “What will I do about…”

There’s a part of us that insists, “You have to get all of those questions resolved before you take a step forward.” But if you wait for that, then you will never pursue your God-sized dream.

Because God-sized dreams are about faith.

If you are certain about everything, then it’s no longer about trust in the Giver of the dream. And what he wants most on this journey is your heart.

I’m not saying to plunge foolishly ahead. Do your due diligence. Pray, ask for wise counsel, and do practical research. But at some point you have to actually do something.

When you do, it will feel like the world is going to explode. Your heart will try to beat out of your chest. Your mind will swirl like a little tornado. Your knees will knock right there in your cute boots. And you will think, “I’m not ready. I need to do more praying, asking, and researching.”

As soon as that thought comes to you, calm is restored. So you assume that must be the wise thing to do. But that’s not true. It’s the safe thing to do. But God-sized dreams aren’t about being safe. They are about holy risk, leaps of faith, putting yourself out there and into the hands of God, where you know that unless he comes through, you will fall…

Will you read the rest with me on the new God-sized Dreams site?
