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.
