**ETA- I started this post on Sunday night and then on Monday one of my friends posted this:
Wednesday I worked on this assignment for The Little Way 30 Day Challenge and wrote this- the top part of this was to be written in our non-dominant hand as a way of taking us out of our comfort zone but then I added the bottom part on my own.
One of my friends saw my post and sent me a link to a pre-order book by Michele Cushatt.
I ordered and got some bonus gifts for preordering. One of those were lock screens for the phone- I looked and chose this one.
Then Sunday comes along and my dad starts to preach (more on that in a bit) and then he brings up Jeremiah 1:18-19 which caused me to do a double-take because of how in line it was with the above.
Hmmm... this was about the point where the 2x4 hit me over the head!
Back to the sermon- My dad was talking about what it means to be a fool and followed it up with these people (I am not going to name all of them- just the ones that were specific in my thought process):
Abraham- "Obedience is easy when it fits into our plan or scheme. Abraham was willing to obey even though it was crazy."
Naaman- "Sometimes we are asked to take steps of wild obedience where we have no clue where it will end. Stop too soon and we miss out on God's phenomenal blessings."
Gideon- "It doesn't matter the size of the army or the enemy coming against you when God is fighting the battle for you."
Hosea- "Though we fail; we are not failures. Though we are unfaithful; God is faithful."
So- in the midst of this crazy (some would say foolish) dream that I am dreaming is it possible that dream could come true? I don't know yet if this is where it is going to unfold. What I do know is that I am going to live my life to the fullest, trusting that with each step I am being led by God.
To end this post- this song- it was played in the video for the torchbearers for our county. It's not a "Christian" song or even by a Christian group but I LOVED the song and think it fits (although there are several others that fit also)
(and after watching this official version- how can I NOT go for my dreams- I have been given this one wild and crazy life for a reason- to share Jesus with others-the question is how?
