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.
