I’ve been thinking on these words I wrote last year…
about the lives we choose, and the paths we take. About how we often spend so much time dreaming instead of actually living our ideas, our plans, our God-ordained passions out.
In Christian circles I think it’s fair to say this line of thinking can be cloaked in subtle over-spirituality. For really, we’re not supposed to be living our own plans, but God’s alone.
Why yes, of course.
But I guess I’m a believer that many times,
when we’re earnestly seeking God,
and asking questions of what HE would like us to do when,
our dreams are often the ones He’s given us. They are His ideas for us.
I don’t claim to have it all figured out in my life, but I do believe it to be true. I kinda think that when we seek first His kingdom, He’ll fill in the picture.
Hmmm…what do you think?
