Calling All Dreamers!

C. S Lewis quote
Dreams are meant to be walked out! But how? You might ask. My answer to you is One step at a time…

I heard the joke, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!
Dreams for many of us are like elephants, way too big to fit anywhere in our lives. Our dreams are usually too big to swallow, too big to hide and shove down and way too big to fulfill on our own. Isn’t it amazing, though, that they fit perfectly in our imagination and heart. You can see them in everything you do and they are more real to you than anything else that you know. You desire it more than anything else, but still it seems elusive. The most miserable people I’ve met are those who have decided that their dreams were just too big and too crazy to go after them. I see them years later stuck in the same place using the excuse “I am too old now to ever fulfill my dreams!” Who put an age limit on our dreams?
You know that I found that my craziest dreams, meaning dreams that were as huge as elephants and dreams that seemed to be delusional and impossible were the very dreams that the Lord himself had birthed into my life. These are the dreams that I know I can’t fulfill on my own. These are dreams that I know that are not possible unless God makes provision, sets me up with divine appointments and connections and provides funds for me to do it. But I have great news for you! I am living out big dreams that are way larger than I ever imagined to be fulfilled. Writing this blog every week, although it may be small to some, is huge for me. This is a dream come true.
Other such dreams of mine are my books. I am not writing this as a promotion for my books, however I just want to encourage you. I have been able to publish three books, again maybe for some this may not seem like a big deal, but for me these were HUGE dreams of mine. I have about fifteen books completed. This is not something I came up with on my own. I feel very blessed by the Lord who I feel with all of my heart inspired every word of them. God totally provided me with what I needed to see them fulfilled. I will not go into all of the details about God’s miraculous provision, or how he made divine appointments for me. You know what I am talking about people want to call it “being at the right place at the right time” or “meeting the right person.” I know when I have holy encounters that were set up divinely. It wasn’t fate or dumb luck, No, it was my Heavenly Father providing for me so that I can fulfill my dreams which give him glory and points to his goodness…
Being an author is one such dream that I thought was so huge and impossible for me to obtain. However, here I sit with a number of books published. I just finished up another book that I am thrilled to say is the largest book I’ve ever written with the greatest number of words and pages. I am so excited to see how the Lord will use it!
Please do not take me wrong again I am not writing this blog this week to toot my own horn ora as a promotion, but to encourage you, the Dreamer, who may be reading this. I simply took one bite at a time and now I have got a good part of an elephant dream swallowed as far as actually writing and getting published. Going on the adventure of where the books will take me is another elephant dream and so on and so on, but one bite at a time, one step at a time with the Lord’s hand leading me, I’m swallowing hard and making great strides! I am sure that your dream may be altogether different from mine but if you desire it, why can’t you have it? If your dreams seem as huge as an elephant may I encourage you to simply take one tiny bite at a time! Eventually you will have an elephant dream swallowed and fulfilled! Frankly, what do you have to lose?
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream!” ~C.S. Lewis
