Five Minute Friday – Willing

Am I willing? That is a huge question to ask. Willing to do what? Whatever God asks, comes the quiet answer. I’ve pondered the concept of the God-sized Dream for the last several months, and only recently have come to wonder what that really looks like. At first glance it means something really big and grand. God is huge, isn’t He? Greater than we can ever comprehend, so a dream of His magnitude has to match that – it has to be big. but, I don’t think so anymore.

 You see, I’ve been thinking about what that dream could look like for each of us. What if that God-sized dream was really about what He has for us and not for what we want for ourselves? And, are we willing to do that. Are we willing to fulfill that dream that says “love your neighbor as yourself”? Am I willing to be okay with  the possibility that I may never meet the girls at the Mercy House and tell them that I’ve prayed for them for years? Am  willing to fulfill that commandment if it just means taking my unemployed neighbor a loaf of bread? Am I willing to let go of the desire to be known by others and rest in the fact that He knows me and calls me Child?

 He’s causing a shift in my thinking – He’s reworking my definition of a God-sized dream. And, yes, Lord, I’m willing.

  1. Hello,
    I am your neighbour at the FMFparty. What a lovely post. We are listening to the same words – God sized dreams, Prayer of Jabez, am I a follower or a fan of Jesus?
    Blessings to you as you open your heart to Jesus to find out what dream He is about to take you on.

      Thank you, Janis, for the kind words and for stopping by!

  2. How “Godincidental” that we both wrote about “willing” in a similar way! Must the the Holy Spirit prompting us to really dig deeper.
    I relate to what you struggle with as far as maybe never “seeing” the people I help. I think this is a good practice in humility though, when we are willing to help without knowing the outcome…at least not on this side of eternity. Serving God and giving Him our all really does require us to let go of everything – even and especially the knowlege of what good we are doing.
    God bless you and strengthen you as He calls you.
