Dreaming bigger


In which I proclaim what I believe 'Dreaming bigger' to be.

This is me promising to dream bigger.

Dreaming bigger is telling limitations and box-ins to leave you well alone when they try and wrap themselves around you.

Dreaming bigger is not letting anyone slow you down, not your family, not your friends, not anyone.

Dreaming bigger is glimpsing at God’s heart and yearning to dream in line with that.

Dreaming bigger is a refusal to be stagnant, and simply stay where you are.

Dreaming bigger is always looking to the new… Isaiah 43:19 {Look! I’m doing a new thing}.

Dreaming bigger is stepping out of your past; stepping out of everything you once were; it is dying to self, and taking another step deeper into what God has for you.

Dreaming bigger is looking further than what your current circumstances present themselves to be, it is the understanding that you are never confined into where you are right now.

Dreaming bigger is being ready; it is being ready to step forward without being ready.  It is knowing that you are completely unprepared, but trusting that God has gone before you.

Dreaming bigger is an acceptance that God is bigger than anything we can conceive; an acceptance that we can’t possibly imagine what He has planned for us: but it is not a sitting-around and waiting acceptance. Dreaming bigger is taking Ephesians 3:20 {"by his power working in us is able to do far beyond anything we can ask or imagine"} and 1 Corinthians 2:9 {“No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”} as a dare to dream further, in the knowledge that God’s plans are always greater. It is saying God look, look, look; these are the things I’m longing for, whilst trusting what He has is even greater. 

Dreaming bigger is a refusal to sit on your bum, because if we are dreaming small, then what can we expect God to plan for us? But if we are dreaming BIG, what will God have in store for us then?

Dreaming bigger is knocking at doors; bashing on doors; crying our hearts out for doors to be opened, whilst always being ready to fall through a different door.

Dreaming bigger is taking Romans 12:2 {do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind} literally, it’s not letting anything in this world stop you and understanding that in God all things are made possible (Philippians 4:13).

This is me promising to dream bigger.
