God Has Big Dreams For You

by | Dec 27, 2022 | The SundayMonday Tuesday Archives

“God has big dreams for you.”

I heard these words at a talk earlier this month, and I felt them in my bones. I was embarrassed to be so taken by them: haven’t I always known that God wants good things for me – not only good things, but big and beautiful and wonderful things, for me and for my life?

When did I start believing that God wanted anything less than His best for me?

In a world so filled with disappointment and missed dreams, it’s incredibly tempting to forget that our good and loving Father has spectacular plans for us. We look around and sit in our hurt and stop trusting that His will is good and His love for us is unfathomably wide and deep.

We make God so little, and forget that He is working in every moment, every day, constantly, for our good.

What would it looks like if we truly trusted that God has big dreams for us; that the desires He gave us He wants to fulfill, and He cares even more about them than we do?

As we enter into the new year, I invite you to ponder this with me. What does it mean to really believe that God has big dreams for us?

A year of living from this truth would be a year of immense freedom, joy, peace, generosity, presence, and adventure.

Let 2023 be the year of believing in God’s biggest dreams for us. He’s already at work.

In Christ,

Jane

Word of the Year

  • I always love using Jen Fulwiler’s “Word of the Year” generator to see what comes up… but I must confess that I usually choose my word after a bit of prayer and discernment. Still, it’s fun to do this, and also to use her Saint of the Year Generator! Stay tuned for a podcast next week where my bff and I will be sharing all about our words for 2023!

“Closer than you think” Homily with Fr. Mike

  • Oof this podcast episode was SO good! I highly recommend for anyone who feels like they’re a bit stuck in the waiting for something… So many good reminders that God is working in this very moment, for our good. One of my favorite quotes: “God is doing something here that he could have not done without this circumstance.” Wow.

Prayer Requests

  • For all those battling illness
  • For a friend’s mother in law, who was just diagnosed with cancer
  • For all caregivers
