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
