Dearest Dreamer,

What dream is God stirring up in your soul?  What dream is it that you are tip-toeing around, trying to hush the roar of passion and desire that pounds in your soul?  It’s scary, isn’t it?  Overwhelming, too.

Oh sweet friend, I know!  I mean, really I KNOW.

That stirring inside you? That lump-in-your-throat, butterflies-in-your-stomach, is this real feeling? That “What if I can’t?” but “What if I don’t?” thought, the one always rumbling beneath the busy-ness of “to do” lists and car pools and diaper changes and car line? That “If I close my eyes I can see it” so I open them quickly because it scares me sensation?

Yes, all of that.

I. Know. It.

It’s the dream, the deep etching of God on your heart.  His dream, His plan, His call.

The dream you never spoke aloud. The dream you never put into actual words.

Because of fear.

Because of doubt.

Because of uncertainty.

Because of insecurity.

Because of time and commitments and a life that doesn’t allow time for dreams.

Yes, dear friend, that one.

The dream of writing a book or opening a restaurant, of adopting a child or starting a ministry, of painting or photography. That dream.

Will you give wings to your dream?

Or even just a cocoon so the wings can come later?  Wrap yourself up in the beauty of God’s presence and allow Him to cover you with His assurance.

What is your dream?  What is the longing has God imprinted on your heart?

Today, I invite you to join me in chasing it, in trusting God to lead you.

Because you, dearest dreamer, are just the sort of person God does incredible things for and through.  And I can’t wait to see what He’s up to in your life!

Much love from a fellow dreamer,

Teri Lynne

What is a God-size dream, you ask?  Holley Gerth says it is “a desire in your heart for more of what God has for you.”  Doesn’t that sound amazing?  I think so too.  That’s why I’m thrilled be a part of the God-Sized Dreams Team … and I’m linking this post up with Holley and a bunch of other beautiful dreamers.  Will you join us? 

And, because Holley is so amazing, she wrote a book just to encourage all of us God-sized dreamers.   You will want to read it … again and again.  It’s filled with nuggets of wisdom, words of inspiration, and the genuine love for others that Holley exudes with her whole life.  So, go now, get You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream: Opening the Door to All God Has for You. I promise, you’ll be so glad you did!

  1. Thank you for reminding me that I have permission to accept/rest just being in my cocoon as I wait on Him to provide my wings.

    1. Oh Amy! I’m all in tears now. Thank you for allowing me the honor of coming alongside you and reminding you! There is just nothing wrong with the cocoon … and when the time is right, He’ll bring you forth! ((hug))

  2. So grateful for you and your words and your sweet support, friend!

    1. That feeling is more than mutual, dear one!

    I love it that you spoke of the dreams we haven’t spoken aloud, because we don’t want to fail or we have failed in the past. How wonderful it is to pray and encourage one another in our God-sized dreams. Thank you, Teri.
