i would never put myself in the dreamer cateory. i think if you asked any of my family memebrs and most of my friends they too would NOT call me a dreamer. i think i’ve almost been too grounded for my own good at times. but lately, i’ve been dreaming, dreaming BIG. i’m not really sure why either. it might have something to do with having mr. z in my life. he tends to think i can do ANYTHING and do anything WELL. he’s totally biased, but his support and encouragement has boosted my dreaming abilities for sure.
nonetheless, as i dream big and ponder awesome things for God, i read these verses in psalm 37 and know it was God telling me to wait on Him more. not to mention yesterday’s sermon was right along these lines. ever feel like you’ve gone to church and the pastor read your mail? like God told him exactly where you are in life. yep, pretty much me these days. it’s been spectacularly comforting!
anyway, back to what i was typing, psalm 37:3-7 spoke loudly to me today.
3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
7 Be still before the LORD
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
i’m excited. i’m excited to dream BIG for Jesus. to dream like never before. and to TRUST the Lord to do His thing. if there is anything i learned in the 7 year journey the Lord took mr. z and i on before we walked down the aisle it’s this: we are made in the waiting and the more we trust the Maker, the more He can knock our socks off!
