Have you had your Joy Juice today? It will bring joy to our Heavenly Father if we drink it faithfully!
Do you realize that we bring joy to God when we are living out the dream that He placed in our hearts? You see, fulfilling our dream is not really about making ourselves happy. It’s not even about feeling significant or gratified. It’s not for the admiration or praises of other people. Those are benefits of the living out our dream, but that’s not what’s important. Our motivation should be to fulfill the call that God has placed on our lives… for His glory! (When a Woman Discovers Her Dream by Cindi McMenamin).
In Matthew 22:37 we are told about our primary calling: and that is to 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
Our secondary or specific calling is HOW we carry out our expression of love for God—through our thinking, speaking, living and acting entirely for Him. We can’t separate the dream from the One who has whispered that dream into our heart. If there was no Dream Giver, there would be no dream.
May I challenge you to think back to your childhood…what did you really want to be when you grew up? Is that dream still in your heart today? Then it may be God’s plan for you! Let’s give our dreams to Him….after all, He is the One who placed it in the garden of our heart. As we pursue a closer walk with Him, He will water that dream seed and help it to grow until it comes to fruition. Oh, what a joyful day that will be!!!!
Let's remember that our primary dream should be to drink in the joy of Jesus!
