I Want to Be a Dreamer
May 1, 2013 § 3 Comments
Do you have dreams? Not like the dreams you have at night, but the big, get you pumped up about life, inspire you dreams?
For the first 26 years of my life, I was not a dreamer. I have never felt overly talented at anything, no matter how passionate for something I may be. And therefore, up until recently, I have enjoyed just being an encourager of others’ dream following.
This has always been a good place for me, because I feel like if I had dreams, I’d want someone to give me affirmation that I should totally go for them. And I think this will always be a unique way for me to love others. (Exhortation = spiritual gift, y’all.)
But at Christmas, I realized that just because I’m not an amazing artist or singer or writer, it doesn’t mean that I don’t have dreams. The Lord made us in His image and this means we make things. So right now, I’m on my journey to figure out what it is God created me to make. I’m hoping this can be a place that helps me find out just what that might be and where I can dream about it out loud.
