Holley’s question for this week is…
What brings you joy—especially when it comes to your God-sized dream?
A God-sized Dream is a desire in your heart for more of what God has for you.
For me, joy is found in my personal relationship with God.
I’ve always believed in God, but I didn’t know Him personally.
I knew Him as a God I could pray to, but not as my God whom I could talk to all day long, about anything.
It was when God began to capture my heart that I knew I wanted to know Him better.
As I turned to Him, He drew me closer. I could feel His presence and I grew to know His voice. I began to see how He was working in me and in my life.
And I found joy.
Joy is knowing that when I’m at the end of myself, I’m not alone. God never leaves me.
Joy is seeing the blessings along the rocky roads.
Joy is learning to focus on Him, and not myself.
Joy is the peace He brings, when nothing in life feels peaceful.
Joy is in knowing I can trust God in everything, because I’ve seen that He always keeps His promises.
Joy is leaning in to God for a hug, sharing something exciting with Him, and crying on His shoulder.
Joy is knowing He’s never too busy to spend time with me.
Joy is knowing God wants to be in a relationship with me. One-on-one. Him and me.
