I caught myself lost in thought tonight reflecting on the journey the Lord has had me on over the last few years. I often wonder how much I’ve changed from all of this. There are remnants of my life that have remained the same but most have not. I seem to just keep chugging along as I wait for God to land me in a spot long enough to fully process the seasons that are behind me.
Everyday I see new life and everyday I hope for more. I long for the day when life’s rhythm becomes my new normal and I don’t question if I’m able to rebuild, because I have proven that I can.
I’ll be 41 this year and I’m still believing for this to be the best decade of my life.
Over the years I have been intentional with writing out the dreams for my life. I recently found a scrap piece of paper tucked away in my Bible from a few years ago. On it, I listed out the dreams I had “for the next chapter“. Back then I had no idea what was just around the corner.
Here are a few things that I’m discovering about being a dream chaser:
Writing out your dreams fills you with faith to believe for them even when things go awry.
We don’t always get to choose the journey to our dreams.
Waiting will always be an ingredient.
Following Jesus is risky.
I don’t know what your dreams are today but I encourage you to write them down, and then wait a bit to see what wild ride you take to get there. Life is full of adventures.
