Tuesday morning in sunny Florida and I'm thinking of you sister dreamers.
I'm picturing you writing about the dreams you dream and I wonder are you ever at a loss for words? Do you sit down hoping for inspiration and silence is deafening? Maybe your mind is so active that the "noise in your head" overrides God's whisper?
Then what? Do you crumble like a dried up scone? Have you been hearing the voice of fear threatening your resolve to dream big? Do you run from the yip, yip, yip of that pesky little Chihuahua of Fear?
Our prompt from last week was to have a little talk with the fear in our lives. We were instructed by our lead God-Sized Dreamer, Holley Gerth to
"write a letter that starts out"
“Dear Chihuahua of Fear, I have some things I’d like to say to you…” yes I do you little foot tripper and headache causer! Now don't tilt your little head at me....oh that is a growl? Better yet!!
I have news for you, you almost had me but The King of Kings reminds me, He is bigger than you:
"God arises. His enemies scatter, and those who hate Him flee from His presence." Psalm 68:1
"It is good to praise the LORD, to sing praise to your name Most High, to declare your faithful love in the morning and your faithfulness at night...The righteous thrive like a palm tree and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon. Planted in the house of the LORD, they thrive in the courtyards of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, healthy and green, to declare: "The LORD is just; He is my rock and there is no unrighteousness in Him." Psalm 92:1-2; 12-15
"And we have come to know and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. In this, love is perfected with us so that we may have confidence in the day of judgement; for we are as He is in this world. There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love. We love because He first loved us." 1 John 14:16-19
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
Praise God, praise God, praise God my sister dreamers. God's Rhema for those times the "Chihuahua of Fear" begins running at me with his "tiny frame" trying to make me stumble. The fear subsides as I read and digest His Word; stopping that "yipper" in his tracks!
