Dream Big!

A couple of weeks ago, I heard a visiting minister say that Joseph dreamed big, humongous dreams. We should be more like Joseph and dream just as big when it relates to what God has called us to do.

"Write my answer on a billboard, large and clear, so that anyone can read it at a glance and rush to tell the other." (Habakkuk 2:2 Message Bible)

So, here it is my big dream top ten list:

10. Publish my WIP
9. Become multi-published
8. Obtain best-seller status
7. Become a much sought after speaker/singer
6. Have Oprah and the Today Show hunting me down for an interview
5. Open a clinic/spa for obese women who have emotional eating disorders and self esteem issues.
4. Publish self-help books referring to #5
3. Open an all boys/all girls Christian school.
2. Attend the openings to the newest blockbuster sensation that also happens to be based upon my books.

And the number biggest dream of all time...
1. Become a dancer!!!!!!!!!!

Dream big people...visualize the positive!

My dream is to see one of my books as a blockbuster movie. Also to make the New York Times Bestseller's list with an inspirational story.

Deb, I love your dreams. Great ones!
This was interesting to do.

Thank you, Margaret. I guess we're all vying for bestseller status. I believe you're writing will make it. :o}

preacherman4life said... all the years I have known you I have never known your desire to become a dancer, and that to be the top dream you have.

I am working on my dreams now. I want to build a successful church (yes I want it to be a mega church) but more importantly I want people to say "hey, your message changed my life". I want to be able to stand before God and him say Well, done. I know the Word says "Seek ye first the kingdome of God and all these things shall be added unto you", so being a well known minister- I believe will come. Being a sought after speaker- is coming. The books that will be published-will come as long as the main dream I have is serving God and wanting to please him.

I know sounds like something a preacher would say, but also sounds like your big brother too, doesn't it? I have thought long and hard about this and I haven't been able to come up with any other dream than this one.

Here is to all your dreams coming true lil' sis'.

Love you,

Big Brother

I salute your dreams!

What an awesome God we have that he will allow your dreams to come true!

It's funny you say your dream sounds like a pastor, but also like a brother. In many of my emails when I refer to you, I write my "pastor/brother".

And about me wanting to be a dancer? Now that's not something our parents or denomination would encourage now, would it?

I have always been fascinated with weddings and the reception. Especially with the Father/daughter dance. I can't even describe the emotion in my heart when I see this dance. (kinda funny for a writer?)

But my heavenly Father gave me a word...he will dance the Father/daughter dance with me at the marriage supper of the lamb. Wow! I tear up just thinking about it.

My dream is to dance before my Father and to dance with him.

Now I need a Kleenex.
