Dream On

Because of His power 
that is at work within us, 
He is able to carry out His purpose 
and do far over and above all 
that we dare ask or think--
infinitely beyond our highest prayers, 
desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams...
Ephesians 3:20

If your dreams don't scare you,
then they're not big enough.
I had just read this inspirational quote and
 stopped to wonder whether my dreams were
big enough. Or high enough. Or important enough.
Especially in this transition season of life.
As the old song goes,
Dream on. Dream on.
Dream until your dreams come true.
Then I read Ephesians 3:20.
It took some of the pressure off.
Because His power is always at work in us 
to carry out HIS purposes and do 
far over and above all that we dare ask
and infinitely beyond our dreams.
Seeing that He does "infinitely beyond"
anything that we can dream,
our dreams will always be too small.

Inspirational quotes awaken something in us
and reveal an element of truth.
But Truth rocks our world.
 Today, it has caused me to 
breathe deeply and rest  
in His infinite goodness and power 
to both dream and do through me.
He dreams on and on.
Our dreams need to be about
 His dreams coming true.

A life where love gets priority
over every desire to act otherly
puts Him at the center of all we do.
The only way our dreams should scare us
is if they are about us.
