God-sized Dreams: Encouraging Others


Dear God-sized Dreamer,

I wanted to write and encourage you today. Sometimes living out our dreams can be scary. I pray today as you read this that you will find some peace and encouragement to keep doing what you are called to do. I believe that God has big plans for your life and your journey. You just have to keep Him first and seek His will daily.dreamer

I have a favorite verse I want to share with you. It is Jeremiah 29:11 and it says this:

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

What a great and mighty God we serve. How much must He love you to declare His plans for you? He does not leave you to wonder, He tells you exactly what they are right here. He wants to help you succeed. He wants you to have hope. I believe that God smiles when He sees you working for Him. It pleases your Heavenly Father when He sees you going about the ministry that He has set before you.

The next two verses that follow are important as well. They read:

12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

God wants you to come to Him with your God-sized dream. He wants you to seek out His will and guidance. God promises that He will hear your prayers.

I pray these verses bring you hope and encouragement today. I pray that you will remember to call on God as you live out your dream. Put God first, ask Him for His guidance and blessing on your ministry, and then rest in the assurance that He already has big plans for you.

I know that God is going to use you to do great and mighty things for Him. I believe that you were created with a purpose, and that God wants to fulfill that purpose in you.

Dear friend, I pray for you today. I pray that any fear you may have, and any uncertainty you may feel will vanish away as you learn to depend on God for your strength.

Remember to always give God the glory for whatever is accomplished through you, for it is not your work that is being done, but God’s work made perfect through you.

When you find yourself tired and worn, I pray that you will think back to this letter and be encouraged. God is not yet finished with you. You are touching lives with the work you do.

Finally, I pray that you will not only thrive in your  ministry, but I also pray that you will enjoy the journey that God has set before you. There is joy in serving the Lord and I believe that He wants to show that to you. I look forward to watching you grow in the Lord.

Love in Christ,

Valarie ( A Fellow Dreamer)

  2. Thank you for this wonderful encouragement, Valarie! Your words are so reassuring and comforting. Sometimes, we all need a reminder of why we are doing what we are doing. And we all need encouragement! I am so glad I found you through the link-up and had the opportunity to read your letter. You are a blessing! Love, your fellow God-sized dreamer, Cheryl

    • I am so glad it was such a blessing to you. I have to confess that as i wrote that letter of encouragement to all of my fellow dreamers, somehow it seeped into my heart as well. I agree that we all need encouragement as we continue to minister with our words. I look forward to sharing more with you in the future and ministering along with you for the Glory of God. God bless you today!
