Dreams DO Come True!

My-Dream-Will-Come-True

Everybody has hopes and dreams. One of my dreams was to be an author. Someone who could inspire the world through the words she has written and spoken-and that continues to be one of my greatest dreams! That said, today I am one step closer to that. I got the chance to guest write an article for a single women’s ministry called She is Set Apart.

While it may not be a full book being published-of which I am currently working on-it is certainly a little blink in seeing my dream coming true!

God has really been planting Jeremiah 29:11-13 in my heart as of late. It says: ‘”For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”‘ (NLT)

I really feel God telling me “Seek me out with your whole heart” There are so many verses that come to mind thinking of this. Here are a few:

Psalm 37:4 (ESV) “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Matthew 6:33 (ESV) “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Basically life right now looks like this: learning to seek God is everything. In the midst of my bustling busy life, trying to get everything prepared for my 3-month cooking Internship at Glacier Bible Camp in Hungry Horse, Montana and trying to get a school course finished, God’s teaching me about seeking him first above all else.

Yes, it can be very tricky. Sometimes I’d rather just sleep in rather than get up a little earlier to spend some time seeking Christ. Sometimes life at home is too noisy. But, Thank Goodness for quiet main street coffee shops where I can go before class and spend a few quiet moments with a cinnamon roll, coffee and my Jesus!

Dreams DO come true, and while I’m seeing some dreams start to bud open, I remind myself “Seek FIRST the kingdom of God…”

See you all in a bit!
