The God-Sized Dream Plan
Today we learned that it is important to share our God-sized dream with someone that can encourage us along the way. I have been struggling with even what to say my God-sized dream is. I have been afraid to say that it is to do art for His glory and that will uplift others and possibly help struggling and/or abused women and children. I prayed last year for my Godly purpose and that was what came to me yet a year went by without much of anything coming forth from it. So I have been afraid to share it again. To want it again. To strive towards it again. But, last week in my therapy session with my new counselor, Connie, I shared some of my art journal pages and she was so encouraging and uplifting. She feels that I have to pursue art as my purpose and when seeking work which will help financially. She feels that I CAN do it and that something CAN come of this. I just have to seek it. I have to look for unusual paths to it. Standard job seeking may not work in this purpose. So she gave me some ideas and my job for now is to go forward and try them out. I need to prioritize this week and I guess THAT should be one of my priorities. To search out and list places that I can try to find ways to use my art and my heart to help others. So, in looking at things in this light I have chosen Connie to be my dream partner and encourager. I must be sure to mention this to her at our next session. And Lord, please help me to take the steps I need to in order that this God-sized dream can come to fruition. Thank you.
