I Have Dreams

I have dreams. I have goals I want to accomplish, I think we all do. Something deep down inside of us yearns to be let loose. And because I know that Jesus knows everything about me, I pray a lot that He would help me live up to my potential, and help me accomplish these things. 

But sometimes it can become more about those dreams, and not as much about Jesus. That’s where it becomes a problem.

I realized this after being at a conference this past weekend. I have such strong desires to do something great with my life, but I tend to forget who I should be doing these things for. I want my life to have meaning and purpose, but I am not going to find that solely through achieving my goals. It should flow from the relationship I have with Jesus. He is my everything.

So I have had to ask myself some hard questions:

– Can I give my goals and dreams over to Jesus and pursue Him?

– Can I trust that He has so much more planned for me than I could even imagine?

– Will my worth be found in Him or in what I can accomplish?

Some thoughts to consider as I pursue my calling. Hopefully this resonates with someone else as well.

Praying that we would pursue Jesus fully each day and trust Him with the rest.

  1. This is part of what God impresses on me often as I pursue my (hopefully God-given) dreams. How sad if I someday achieve my dreams but without the heart for God behind them!

  2. Oh, I have been praying these very prayers. Christy Nockels’ line in "Everything is Mine" "I can trust you with my longings…" has been powerful to me since Lit. The tension lies in between the going for it and resting in Him! I’m with you sister!
