Do you ever wake up feeling like I was made for more than this?
This overwhelming pile of laundry.
This underpaid job I hate.
This sadness I can’t shake.
You feel that was because you were made for more.
“As long as you are alive, God wants you to go further, dig deeper, and draw closer to him. Every dream or desire you have that comes from God is an invitation for more intimacy with him.” -Holley Gerth.
This is the book–the guide– I needed 3 years ago, when I took the first step towards the dream that was so much bigger than my ability. I’ve had a lot of time to catch up on my ever-growing pile of nightstand books this week. You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream: Opening the Door to All God Has for You is inspiring me this week! I’m highlighting and nodding my head and learning. Because dreaming isn’t just for the crazy (me) or brave (not so much), it’s for everyone who breathes. God has more for you and when you dream, you are changed. And when you stare in the face of something so big is scares the soup out of you, He is there and nothing is bigger than God. Even the impossible.
I’m a firm believe in filling up on the Word, and books that inspire me to love God more.
Also on my nightstand this week:
Table Life – Savoring the Hospitality of Jesus in Your Home –Table Life is a call to transform the daily routine of eating meals into a celebration of loving connections and spiritual nourishment.
Redeeming Love –It’s been years since I’ve read this fictional retelling of Hosea and Gomer. I love this story of redemption. For every non-fiction book I read, I always have an open fiction book, too.
