Dear Dreamer, Yes You




Dear Dreamer,
I know sometimes the road you have chosen seems hard and pointless. There are obstacles, some you knew would come and others have been quite unexpected. The doubts and fears they never go away I'm afraid, instead they get louder; don't worry though, this means you are on the right track and a breakthrough is right around the corner, if you just hang in there.

People won't always support you like you hoped they would, they think you could be doing better things with your time then chasing silly dreams. But don't let their words stop you. Think on them if you must, for a moment, but not a minute longer. Satan could be using them to hinder you. And you can't let that happen. You must never stop moving forward, regardless the cost.

It's not selfish to dream and it's not a lack of faith to plan and take steps. God can't do anything with you if you are being still. Let your heart be still and pray for His wisdom. You don't have to strive to make it all happen on your own. God will bring people in your life to love on you and encourage you when you think you can't take another step.

He brought us together 'for such a time as this' every day perfectly planned and already written down. He sees you, He is El Roi, after all, the God that sees.  And He knows your every tendency. There is nothing that will happen now or down the road that will surprise Him. He will either allow it or He planned for it.

The world needs your ideas and words, and creative one of a kind perspective. Please don't allow the world to change who you are in an effort to conform you to it's ways. You are better than that. Following after your God given dream is the only way to be true to yourself. It's the only way to have peace with who you are.

I know you can do this, I believe in you!

So go, go after those dreams that won't leave you alone. Follow hard after them. And one day, when your time on this earth is finished, you will get the honor of being before your King and hearing Him say "Well done, my faithful servant" and you will be in awe of what the two you accomplished all because you decided to trust and have faith.

Sincerely,
Your Dream Sister



**This week, we are writing letters to our dream sisters, encouraging them to keep chasing after those God given dreams. Won't you join in?

  2. "People won't always support you like you hoped they would, they think you could be doing better things with your time then chasing silly dreams." I have been facing this exact thing lately. No one ever speaks it but they sure make me feel it. It is also the reason I am extra thankful for you and the other God-sized dreamer that Holley has brought together. You are sure an encouragement and lift me up so much when other what to knock me down. Again thank you for sharing in dreaming with me.

    1. I think when it's something people don't understand they tend to reject it. That's the hard part, believing in yourself enough to move ahead anyways, and eventually they'll have no choice but to believe in you. Grateful for you too, Amy!

  3. I love how you mention that your heart can be still and you can still be moving. For me, my heart being still means that I'm trusting in God to lead every one of my steps.

    1. Me too Jen, it used to mean that I did nothing and just waited :) So, I'm learning to do both the right way now.

  7. Alecia! Thank you for the encouragement to dream and believe. I suspect that you are an Aaron or a Hur to many people in your everyday life. You are precisely that to me, today!
