Chasing your dream is scary. Sometimes you don’t even know what your dream is. It can be hard to define, almost elusive. I’ve learned recently that’s ok. It’s ok to not know details, it’s ok to test ideas out. However, it’s not ok to give into fear and suppress those dreams. Holley Gerth, the author of You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream, has put so much into perspective for me. First off we have to face fear head on and give it a run for its money. She wisely states, “You will face fear. Fear is a response to a threat. It means there’s risk and something you value is on the line. If you don’t feel that way about your dream, then it’s not close enough to God’s calling for you.” God-Sized dreams are big and can be scary at times. We tend to think it’s selfish to strive for our big dream. It’s not. It’s God’s calling, His will for us, our purpose.

There is so much joy in the journey to achieving dreams. In reality, we think the end goal and finishing is the most important thing. The journey is how we grow and develop closer relationships. Our God has so much in store for us and we need to put our feet firmly on the ground and starting running towards Him.

“Have you ever tried to steer a parked car? It’s a tough proposition. Just get in gear and start heading down the road. The rest will work itself out as you go.” -Holley Gerth

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
I am the vine; you are the branches, If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such brances are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”

H A P P Y E A S T E R !

Easter is filled with spring flowers, eggs dyed in bright pastels, and candy. But most importantly Easter is about Jesus. Easter is about love, pain, and life. Jesus died for me. Jesus died for you. He was painfully tortured and brutally murdered so we may have life. That is not the end of the story though. The tomb is empty!! Jesus rose and made the impossible possible and the unbelievable believable.

“..but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed with lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Then they remembered his words.”
Luke 24 : 2 – 8

“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”
1 Corinthians 15 : 20 – 22
