A few weeks ago I attended an event hosted by Mariner’s Church called “Discover Your Dream.” Kenton Beshore,Mariner’s Senior Pastor, and Bob Goff, Lawyer, Dreamer and All Around Whimsy Worker, challenged and inspired the 600+ attendees to believe that God has unique plans for each and every one of us. And most importantly, that He really and truly wants us to show us those plans.
I left energized, empowered, and encouraged.
But in my experience dreaming is accompanied by a slew of challenges. I struggle with naming my dreams, owning my dreams, realizing my dreams, and of course, finding the actuality of my dream to be rather lackluster.
It’s so bad that there are days when my dreaming dilemmas leave me wanting to forgo dreaming altogether and drift into a life of complacency. I wasn’t sure if it was just me, so I asked a few friends to write a post sharing some challenges that has accompanied the pursuit of their dreams. A few of them said yes. So get ready for some greatness this week from Stephen Brewster, Bianca Juarez Olthoff, Amanda Williams and Annie Downs.
And in the meantime, what challenges accompany your dreams?
