Dreaming with God and dreaming without God yield drastically different results. I’m learning to dream small. What? I know! Sounds contradicting to what the world says. But that’s Jesus after all. I’ve found that when I dream big, widen myself and focus on masses, I lose the intentionality of investing in individual hearts; I miss the important moments and the gentle nudges of the Holy Spirit. My approach toward this faith and fitness business I consider a privilege and huge responsibility is now one that is Spirt driven rather than action/ambition driven. And in all honesty and vulnerability, I’m still prone to wander. But I just keep asking God to bring me back with his rod + staff as He is The Good Shepherd. Jesus always chased hearts not masses. We are to do the same no matter what platforms / responsibilities we have.
As I look at our family dream board, I can see a few shallow + wide goals rather than deep ones. It’s time to re-evaluate. So as I get back from an incredible 8 days away, I’m not getting sucked into my to do list and letting action drive me. Today I just want the Holy Spirit to take over. As I pray over the theme for June’s faith + fitness group and the women who will be joining us, I’m waiting on Him to clarify the purpose behind this group. I don’t just want to go through the motions because this would be my 40th group to run. I’m excited to hear what He has to say. I pray this encourages you this morning and reminds you to go deep with others and in your work.
Whenever I lead faith and fitness groups each month (going on 33 months straight!) I personally grow so much. Thankful for the women going on this journey with me!
Is fear of failure holding you back from experiencing the true greatness, power, might, resources and love of God?
