I long to be, but just don't know how. It's not my default. Where do I even begin when asking the Lord to help me begin dreaming about the life he has planned for me?
I was so honored when Heather Boersma asked me to read and review her book, Dream Big: 30 Days to a Life Beyond All You Could Ask or Imagine. I may not be a dreamer, yet, but a table of contents that has a spirit-filled plan for each day has "me" written all over it.
Dream Big reads like a devotional, and each day Heather opens with a passage that asks readers to discover scripture and tangible instructions to, as Heather writes, "make our dreams a reality." There are also sections to write down your own reflections as well as opportunities to write and reflect with the Lord. I am so passionate about time spent journaling and love that Heather asks readers to commit to each of these sections as a spiritual routine throughout the 30 days.
I fell in love with Heather's section about community. As my husband and I prepare for a potential move this summer, finding a new community [and quickly] is going to be so important, especially as we watch our little family grow by one this October. Heather outlines God's plan for our lives, lives lived out with others, and reinforces the importance of building one another up. She writes, "Our gifts work best when they are used within community setting in cooperation with the gifts of those around us. We are designed to be one piece of the puzzle, not the whole picture. Think about how your gifts can be used to build up the community God has place you in."
I've only just begun my journey through Heather's book and my journey to becoming more of a spirit-filled dreamer, and I can't wait to see what I discover about the Lord and about myself.
