How many of you have a dream in your heart but feel like it's completely unattainable? You can see it so clearly, and maybe in burns in your heart, but it feels impossible at the moment.
Today I'm wrestling with a dream that I want to see happen. I can see it and almost touch it, but the steps to that goal aren't clear. This is the moment where a dream stays a dream, or you can begin to take that idea to God, pray, and receive His strategy for its fulfillment.
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Sometimes it's easier to give up on a dream than believe God answers prayer. Timing, His perfect will, and other people sometimes tie into the answer He gives, but if we really believe that He loves us and has a plan for our lives, the "impossible" walls around our dreams may just be there to test our tenacity. Prayer is an amazing place of action, where we lay our dreams before God and listen for His heartbeat and strategy.
This idea reminds me of Heidi, a story from my book Finding Beautiful.
Her biggest dream was to be a wife and mother. After praying and fasting for her husband from the tender age of nine and marrying her true love, Heidi was devastated to discover the hidden life of addiction and abuse within the life of her husband. Her dreams came crashing down at a young age when her marriage fell apart and she found herself all alone in a strange country. Yet God was not finished with her dreams, and she discovered Hie power of restoration and a special gift of love that was woven into this chapter of her journey. God loves dreams and is faithful to carry them when we trust Him!
