Girlfriend, fiancee, wife, homemaker, and mother are all titles I dream of tenaciously holding. They are each desires God has placed in this BIG heart.
To say I was not created to dream would be the biggest lie! Ask anyone of my friends they will tell you that I just don't stop.
You see, dreamers constantly dream. In fact it is quite hard to stop. Dreaming of the man God has me "patiently" waiting for (well as patient as one can) , the company I hope to be the CEO of, college, the house I will make a home, the adventures I will take, speaking engaments I will some day speak at, and SO SO SO much more. I really do enjoy dreaming. It's almost NEVER a dull moment in my brain, and if you spent 3.5 seconds in there you would probably be so confused, because I just go from one thought to another, to another.
A few months ago I called a friend, this friend is a fellow dreamer. We often call each other when we feel no one else under stands our God size dreams. Usually our conversations jump from one subject to the next, but this particular call wasn't like any other. I dream so much that when I don't see those dreams come to pass it can be discouraging. I had been struggling with the gift of dreaming God had so graciously given me.
I expressed to this friend that I didn't want to dream anymore, that I felt I was only hurting myself by dreaming and hoping for these things. By not seeing them come to pass. I just "couldn't do it anymore. My heart couldn't handle it. She replied with this, "Makyna, what if your job is to dream? What if God uses those dreams to do something incredible?" If I'm being honest I didn't really want to hear that. But it's what I needed to hear.
Thanks for being here!
