What would you do if you could do anything?

I know we can't do whatever we want. We all have responsibilities such as spouses, children, fido and the rest. I had a chance to spend some time with friends of mine who are pastors and leaders in various communities and I asked them what their dream was. Not some stale sisified Christian response that we'd smile and wave our used hankies in agreement. We were talking about what we wanted to spend our days doing. So we all went around the table and shared. Some had detailed dreams while others were still figuring out what their dream was. Most everyone at the table was not fulfilling their dream. We have a tendency to tuck our dreams away and not share them or live them because of our feelings of inadequacy. What if the burden or dream that God has placed on your heart isn't merely an option that God is giving you but is more of an expectation. I'm a firm believer that God allows us to see things so that we can do something about it and not simply complain that it's not being done. What is the God-driven dream that you have tucked away or have given up on? I just met with a wonderful lady in our church who is starting a prayer ministry in her community. Right now it's just her and a dream that God could transform that entire town. She didn't realize that God has been stirring me to hopefully plant a church there in the next 2 years over these last few months. In fact, probably only 4-5 people know that (including the possible church planter). There is no way in telling how God will meet us as we step into the unknown and follow the burden that He places on our hearts. Maybe we'll fail. Maybe our dreams will fall apart or worse yet become a nightmare. Or maybe, just maybe, we can live the life and do the things that we've always dreamed of for the Kingdom of God.

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
