Why – God Sized Dreams

Why do I feel my dreams are worth pursuing?

That is the question that we are answering over at HolleyGerth’s today.  We’ve got some God-sized Dreams and we’re opening our hands and letting our dreams take flight in His time with His plan.

Dear Beloved Daughter,

You asked me why, and I am going to tell you…

Because…

 

Before you were formed, knit together with your green eyes and blond hair I held the seeds of your dreams in trust, for safe keeping, until your heart was fertile and ready to receive them back.

Before your mother’s body bent, before the pleasure-pain rippled across her belly, I felt the anguish of your first failure, the pain of your first doubt.

Before you pushed your way through dark with your fists and eyes clenched I saw you bent and broken.  Your heart turned stony and your soul covered in dark.

Before you even breathed your first breath, I saw every word you wrote and I knew that those words would bring you home to Me, your Father.

Before your first lusty cry filled the room, I heard you in your darkest time say My Name and welcome salvation to your heart.

Before your first step, I counted all of your other steps.  Each one measured, each one numbered.

Before you spoke your first word, I heard your dreams as you whispered them and gave them a hesitant voice

Before…

Daughter, before you were – I WAS and I AM – and all of these things that beat inside your chest.  All of these dreams that you dare to dream – they’re Mine!  Held in trust by Me, planted by Me, birthed by Me…

So dream them, big or small, dream them –because I AM your why… and I always will be.
 
I love you so much,
 
Father God
