every one of us was designed with a dream in our heart. i truly believe this.
but life gets in the way. fears, doubts, insecurities and just the day-to-day noise of our lives block us from hearing the quiet whisper of our heart.
because our hearts don’t scream out at us: THIS IS YOUR DREAM!!!
the heart whispers. it quickens. it speaks to us through our tears.
these are the God-planted dreams of a heart.
the calm place in the middle of a storm. the stillness in chaos. the fierce quiet amidst the clamoring noise. where your tears meet the deepest longing of your heart.
it’s the pull of your calling.
each of us has a different call imbedded in the fabric of who we are. all that is us, all we long to be, who we were made to be and what we were created to do. so often i resist. i think i’m not qualified, ready, capable, able.
but i’m willing.
and perhaps being willing is all that is required. all that He needs to use us. mold us. make us for Him.
He doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
the only ingredients required to follow the Author of your dream is an open heart and willing hands.
unclench your fist.
throw your head back and look to the sky.
open your heart, open your hands and live the life you imagine.
