Yeah! It’s that time again.. it’s God sized dream Tuesday . connecting with what has become a dear friend haven’t really met in real life but feel like I know her and my other Dream buddies at
would you check her and my other buddies out today. It will bless you I promise.
What a perfect way to start out this dreaming day
My precious friend Shawna had this cup out for me to use this morning. I spent the night at her house last night and she knows me soo well.. had me a cup of steaming coffee in that cup to meet with Jesus this morning.
What a gift
anyways.. soo if you are joining me.. what do you think about my new blog look.
I looooove it! I am so pleased with it and so excited that God gave me such a precious woman to redo this blog.
That was part of my God-sized dream step.. so would you celebrate with me..
I wanted to make this blog look professional, yet inviting
and I LOVE IT!
stay tuned in the next couple of days for a few fun giveaways to celebrate!
anyways.. i digress
We are supposed to post today about a time when we took positive action towards a God sized dream… so that when we get scared about pursuing our dreams we will remember times we took action
Well can I be a rebel and sortof answer that question with a story of something I have been reflecting on lately.
I have an amazing group of friends that I feel soo blessed with that I just recently made last year really. They have become such a sweet community to me.
And these friends are slightly obsessed with Just Dance 4 .
It’s a dancing game for Kinect (I think that’s right)
and it’s hilarious.
My favorite is watching people’s faces as they dance (if you are reading this my one particular friend don’t worry i am not going to call you out)
It’s just so fun to watch.
But to be honest I don’t really like to join in.
Because I am a terrible terrible dancer.
I all the sudden remember those terrible middle school eighth grade dance moments.. makes me shudder and want to go to years of psychoanalysis just thinking about them… haha
those insecure can’t seem to get the steps right
and look good doing them years.
Those years full of fear and insecurity.
YUCK! those years where I held back and apologized for who I was when I entered into a room
instead of walking confidently wrapped in who I was in Christ.
It also reminds me of how I did so bad in my required dance class in college I had to take it twice (hahah. and yes a required dance class for my church vocations degree).
But the thing is .. inside I really love to dance.
and I was taught something about dancing from my daddy.
See everyday when my daddy came home from work He would put my feet on his and we would dance.. to the same tune.. sometimes different rhythms and paces.. different outfits.. different size feet as the years went on..
but same thing
the same joy of dancing on my daddy’s feet.
And I still do that today anytime I see my daddy.
When I left for two years in nepal the last thing I tearfully did in the airport was dance on my daddy’s feet. Didn’t matter who was around.. i knew those steps would give me the confidence to step into the new life God had called me to.
That’s the key!
Dancing with my daddy reminded me made me feel like I can do anything.
And that’s how I want to continue to pursue my God sized dreams.
Not hold back due to fear of not knowing the steps
or what others will think
or how foolish I may or may not look doing it!
Willing to look like a fool but sure having a GREAT time doing it.
Stepping on the feet of the God of the universe and accepting His invitation to dance… to dream.. to live alive
Ps37:23 He delights in every detail of my life
Psalms 30 He turns our mourning into dancing
So why you dance into some dreams with me today!
