This post is a part of Five Minute Friday, a writing flash mob that happens every week when writers are prompted by a single word to write for 5 minutes without any major editing. Just raw thoughts and emotions. You can find out more and/or join the party here.
For the longest time, when anyone asked me what my dream was I would just blankly stare at them and shrug my shoulders. It was a frustrating feeling; not knowing what my dream was. I of course had the typical dreams, marriage, kids, something to do with horses, and the perfect little small town where everyone knew me. But, I didn’t have a dream, a passion, that drove me towards a high and lofty goal. I felt like there was something wrong with me because I was lacking in this, this having a dream. It was at around 23 that God planted a small seed that would grow into the dream I have today. In a prophecy I received, I was told that I had a book in me. I laughed it off then, but some ten years later He reminded me of that Sunday so long ago when my friend had spoken into my life. It was time to give wings to the dream God had planned for me. That’s how this blog was born as a way to find my writing voice before jumping into writing a book.
If you are like I was and are wondering through life wondering what’s wrong with you. Wondering why you don’t have a dream. If you’re frustrated because you don’t yet know what your dream is, just wait, God has a plan for you. He has the perfect dream for you that He will plant in your heart at just the right time so that it can grow into exactly what He wants for you. I encourage you to open up your Bible and read Jeremiah 29:11. It is my life verse and I go back to it often when things are unclear to me.
