Swallow Dreams One Bite at a Time!

Swallowing Dreams One Bite at a Time!

Swallowing a Dream One Bite at a Time!

Big Dreams require continuous steps forward to see them become reality!

Swallow Dreams One Bite at a time! 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 unhappy people I’ve met are those who have decided that their dreams were just too big and too crazy and so they just gave up on ever fulfilling them.

Jeremiah 29:11  (KJV) 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

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 the dreams that I know 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! God is not a respect of persons! If He did it for me, he’ll do it for you!   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, chance, or coincidence,  it was my Heavenly Father providing for me so that I can fulfill my dreams which give Him glory and points to his goodness…

Big Dreams require continuous steps forward to see them become reality! Being an author is one such dream that I thought was so huge and impossible for me to obtain, but here I sit with several books published, with many more finished and ready to go.   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 and making an impact.  Going on the adventure of where the books will take me is another elephant 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!

Do Not Despise These Small Beginnings

14 May

Do Not Despise These Small Beginnings

small beginnings

Do Not Despise these Small Beginnings.  I love this Scripture in Zechariah because it shows me just how relatable and personal the Lord is.  He knows all of our beginning from the end.  He helps in all of the between places, but this Scripture shows His heart in that He rejoices to see us begin! Why?

Every success story starts with a beginning.  We all had to start from someplace and move forward from those tiny little steps! My thoughts go back to when my baby boys begin to try to walk.  They would slowly let go of the furniture they were using to balance themselves,  then teeter on their little tippy toes to make their tiniest first baby step!  My husband and I as their parents,  would praise them and rejoice with arms opened wide to encourage them to walk to us.  They stumbled and fell, and would get back up until they walked more and more.  They soon gained confidence and independence until they were practically at a run.

Progression and Success occur when we are consistently making the choice to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving.  We can be confident as we walk because we know the Lord is cheering us on with arms opened wide just like my husband and I had done with our boys.  The Lord rejoices to see us begin because He knows what He has waiting for us. So my friends in the Words of  Zachariah 4:10 (NLT) “Do Not Despise these Small Beginnings for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.” I also had to throw the following Scripture in as well, again to show that the Father’s heart concerning you and me. Psalm 37:23 (KJV)  The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
