God-Sized Dreams

I know there are people out there truly living their dream. I see it on social media every day and it genuinely makes me happy to see people living their best life! My life has not been a dream, but a series of disappointments, setbacks, and starting over one too many times. However, I can honestly say that I am perfectly content in my life right now. I’m happy, fulfilled, and life is better than it’s ever been but I know there’s so much more available to me if I just dare to dream!

I do dream of being married again one day and was discussing this with a friend a few weeks ago. She asked me what I desired in a husband. My reply was “someone that would fit into my life seamlessly that wouldn’t hold me back from pursuing the path that I am on, seeking God’s heart.” She was a little shocked and told me she wanted so much more for me than that. She wanted me to have a husband that would be the leader of our household. A husband that would push me and encourage me to pursue the desires of my heart and be all that God wants me to be. A husband that would pray with me and over me. A husband that would love me and respect me like Jesus does. She went on to say she didn’t want me to have to date to find him, that we would just meet and know.

That conversation made me realize that I am so blessed to have her as a friend and I had set such low expectations for my dream of being married again. If my friend wants that for me, think how much more God wants for me! God wants me to dream BIG GOD size dreams! I know the dreams He has for me are so far beyond my realm of possibility. I wait on Him with hopeful expectation!

As we transition into a new year, a new beginning, a fresh start, please take a moment and ask God what His dreams are for you? He is a God of miracles, a God of abundance, a God who loves you and wants to bless you with BIG GOD size dreams!
