God-sized Dreaming

A Year of Hard Dreams

2013 saw me following Holley Gerth’s vision for God-sized dreaming. I didn’t do it perfectly…in fact, not even close. I had to cling to one of God’s most beautiful attributes- forgiveness. He forgives and lets us keep trying though we don’t deserve such grace and mercy. When I began the process of really discovering, accepting, […]

A Breath of Fresh Air

Our God-sized dreaming this week focused on having some fun…doing something “light”…escaping the pressure that is life for at least a few moments. So, I did. And tried not to let it stress me out.   How easy is it to get so caught up in what we have to do that we forget that […]

Chihuahua of Fear

“Fear hangs out right next to whatever it is you’re most called to do. That means the closer you get to your calling, the louder fear sounds. Keep going–fear is a chihuahua that sounds like a Doberman.” — You’re Made for a God-sized Dream, Chapter Five Dear Chihuahua of Fear, I have some things I’d […]

Should I stick with my God-sized dreams?

I find myself asking this question every so often. How much easier would it be to just sit back and watch life happen? Bearing up under the weight of life is hard; the load can feel even heavier when you add big dreams to the mix. When your dreams do not easily come to fruition, it […]

A day in the life…

  Our group of God-sized dreamers was asked to think about what an ordinary day looks like for us right now. I find myself asking the question above quite often. In fact, when I think about an average, run of the mill day right now, this question is never very far from the front of […]

When Joy is Hard to Find

This week’s topic with Holley Gerth and the God-sized dreamers: What brings you joy- especially when it comes to your God-sized dreams? We usually link our posts on Tuesdays…and here it is, Saturday. Even while being home all week on spring break and actually having time to write, the words would not come. I have had […]

A Letter to the God-Sized Dreamers

Dear God-sized dreamers,About this time last week, I wrote these words: “I will not be consumed when my God-sized dreams detour into sorrow; I have hope, and I will wait for him.”I wrote those words as I was working my way out of a pit- a pit of despair and self-pity. Has your heart ever […]

Unlikely Inspiration

A man, although initially insecure and hesitant, accepted God’s call on his life.He faithfully relayed the message God had given him… even when it wasn’t a message that people wanted to hear. Even when no one seemed to listen. Even when he wished he had never been born. He spent 50 years or so following God’s […]

Trusting

I’ve spent a lot of time hugely doubting myself…making excuses…not carving out time…which were really all ways of not fully trusting God.   I started my scary journey towards my God-sized dream with a baby step- emptying a wall of its furniture and going in search of the perfect writing desk. As you may recall, […]

Fear, round 2

As I got ready to title this, I thought I had a post already titled “Fear”… sure enough, that one appeared back in December. Hence, fear… round 2. This week, I have been pondering fear. I think this is something we all face at some point in our lives… in fact, many of us have […]
