Poem For God-Sized Dreamers
Dream a dream. A God-sized dream. But never dream alone.
Link hearts with God, your dream-Maker, in every dream-seed sown.
That hope he planted in your heart to do that God-sized thing~
Keep dousing it with prayer and work, and watch your dream take wing.
The path of dark and dirty soil may hide you long and low,
but deep in Christ, you’re safe to trust He’ll grace you as you grow.
A little here, a little there, as days and nights accrue,
your heart will beat as one with His. There’s nothing you can’t do.
Let Scripture wrap you warm and tight through nights and shiver-days;
Thank God for rain and storms because you’re led in all your ways.
Like light and sunrays, you break through… slogs, sludge, and soil gone wrong.
Since Christ the Lord pumps in your veins, He’ll see you finish strong.
His love in you propels you on beyond all fear and strife.
Stand tall, sweet rose of God, it’s time… to spill your fragrant life.
“You don’t need a buy-in from all your coworkers, your entire Bible Study, your high school friends on Facebook, and the checkout girl from the grocery store. Sometimes we delay our dreams because we think that everyone’s approval is confirmation. (Psst it’s not!)” ~ Holley Gerth, from her new book, “You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream: Opening the Door to all God has for You.”
I’m cheering for you, God-sized dreamers; but even more ~ God is!
And you can do anything if God is in it!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20, 21
