Lately, I have been amazed at the things I get to do. God has great things for me and has been teaching me to trust in his goodness. He is good and I can believe that about him, if I want to. It hasn’t always been easy believing that about him in every situation. He is good and there is no evil in him at all!!
He is great at making my dreams come true. I have spent so much of my life trying to do it myself. I would honestly get overwhelmed because I couldn’t figure out how to make my dreams come true. I have always been a dreamer! The truth is, he has been calling me to a life of fulfillment, but I was so stubborn at times, I wanted to do it on my own. That wasn’t fun!!!
Now, I understand that he wants to, and I get to. I get to lock arms with him and do the fun things I have always dreamed of doing. I used to say, “I have to”. This was a thinking bound by obligation and a misunderstanding about my relationship with my heavenly family. There are so many things on God’s heart. It is a privilege to be able to know him so well that I “get to” share what is in his heart for myself and others. He is really the best dad!!
WE GET TO!
When I was in Wales, UK, he kept beckoning me to come away with him. He wanted me to see things from his perspective and challenge me to dream with him. I simply said, “Yes!” I did not know what this would look like lived out, but I kept hearing him say that he had already worked out all the details. I made a decision to just trust. I had a moment when I was in Wales where I got a little lost. So I just went with it. In the distance I saw some castle ruins and decided to go explore. The walk to the ruins was amazing. There was a really narrow path full of twists, turns, and surprises. I was really distracted with this path because of all the surprises. I get to the end of the path and I find the most amazing open view of the sea. It was so breath taking, I just wept and could barely breathe. It was so overwhelmingly surprising. I felt such a gentle kiss from my heavenly papa as I tried to take it all in. I began to understand that all he wanted my entire life was to make my dreams come true. I didn’t believe in what I dreamt, but he always did. I am so thankful that he has not let one dream fall to the ground, but instead he remembers them all and is faithful to walk this out with me. Some people are fine with living their life without this friendship with God. I choose to walk this with him, because I just want to. It is fun. I love being friends with the creator of everything.
