Every once in a while, a dream finds its way into my heart and just will not be dislodged.

Do I chase after it?

Do I sit and wait, pretending patience, while I let God bring the dream to bloom?

Does there come a point where I know I'm being called to it and just step out - in fear and hesitation - to pursue this dream?

I don't know.

I do know where my heart lies.

I do know that this dream has not gone away, after years of prayer and surrendering.

I do know that maybe, just maybe it's time to step out, to let go of the fear that is holding me back and to trust that He is leading.

But it is scary.

I am insecure. Not sure I am willing to risk.

But would it be as sweet of a dream if there was no risk involved?

And it might, just possibly, be WAY outside my comfort zone! (aren't most dreams though?)

So I pray some more - but maybe, just maybe I'm at the point where praying is a cop out and I need to follow...

I think prayer is very much the key though! Yes, perhaps in our humanness we can use the "I just still need to pray about it" card as a cop out, but (as you know) prayer invites the Holy Spirit to clearly guide. Some of these awesome dreams are sent straight from Him, and waiting any longer would be like telling our Creator he doesn't know what he is doing.

Excited to hear more...
