More. We all want it. We all long for it & dream about it.
Whether your “more” is a bigger house or to sell your house and move to Africa. [i’m just saying]
We all dream about the future.
And I’m all for dreaming. Day dreaming. Writing my dreams. And most importantly praying circles around my biggest dreams.
But lately I’ve been thinking about the dream I’m living!
I’ve been thinking about the dreams fulfilled.
I’ve dreamed for almost 4 years of being a mother!
And this Mother’s Day, for the first time my arms were full.
I’m living that dream!
Staying home to raise my two chickens is a dream fulfilled.
In 19 days I’ll be living another dream I’ve dreamed.
Leading a group to love & serve orphans in Africa WITH my husband! AND my bestie Jenna!
I dream about spending my days on the muddy streets of Korah holding hands and loving on my precious Ethiopian sons + daughters.
I’ve dreamed about being in Ethiopia again with Jenna + getting to fulfill the great commission together!
We are living it!
Thinking about the road to those dreams fulfilled….it wasn’t/isn’t easy. But life as Christ followers isn’t easy. The road there is full of bumps & bruises. But it’s worth it. It’s my life’s work! The dreams & promises fulfilled only push me to keep dreaming and keep believing His promises for me!
I guess this is just a good old fashioned pep talk to myself. a sweet reminder from the Lord to be in the moment. To appreciate the season I’m in!
Don’t get caught up in what you aren’t doing or what’s to come! Live life in the present and be thankful for the dream you are living right now! For the promise fulfilled!
Dream and pray about the future but keep a good perspective of what God has already done& is continuing to do!
What dreams + promises has God fulfilled in your life?
