Thinking about how I live my life in pursuit of my God sized dream...
Do you want to hear about my daily routine? Well I doubt that. I'm busy my thumbs will break of typing it all (I'm in my notes app today).
I do wake up everyday with great expectation that something great will happen today, that my life will point someone to Jesus. Even in the muck of my mistakes, I pray that my apology and my mess point someone to Jesus.
I start my day off in prayer and throughout the day, I pray. If someone posts something hateful I pray. If they are hurting I pray. I walk by maps, think of muffins being adopted, and I pray. If my friends are near or far from Jesus, I pray.
I pray about my heart, that it beats in one with the Father. I pray that everyday, I love bigger than the last. I praise Him in thankfulness.
Sometimes I'm some overwhelmed, I say nothing at all and I let my heart sing to The Lord, in good and bad.
I see posts that were nuts yesterday & I wonder when will we ever get it? Live love. Honestly, I care little about the sins of others, I'm busy hating my own sin, and trying to find the love language if everyone else so I can love them. For me, it means that I need to stop hiding behind tasks and be more relational, put my heart on the line, knowing it will be hurt and knowig I will be stronger and love bigger because of it.
My God sized dream? To point thousands towards Him with a community center. I share my dream, I listen to friends and family who love me and tell me the things I need to hear and encourage me to live it. I pray, not my will, but Yours be done. I sing the song "word of God speak" by mercyme to hear His voice.
I don't live my days out perfectly, I just don't. I wish I did :/ my love bucket doesn't run over like it should, I'm loud when I should be quiet, put I press on, moving forward. In prayer, and in love.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13, 14 NIV)
