Dangerous

June 19, 2009

“I’m ready for Christianity that ruins my life, that captures my heart and makes me uncomfortable. I want to be filled with an astonishment which is so captivating that I am considered wild, unpredictable and …well…dangerous!”

Go After the Biggest Dream in Your Heart

June 3, 2009

For the 3 months I’ve been here in South Africa, I’ve only blogged about what I’ve been doing. I miss getting to share things that inspire me, which were written by others.  Here is something that inspired me, written by Anne Jackson a blogger and author:

“I was having a little Twitter chat with a friend of mine yesterday – one who has been a big cheerleader in my life. After sending me a bit of encouragement about the roads I’m taking, and ones I am considering taking over the next six months to a year, he said this:

Go after the biggest dream in your heart.

I don’t know about you, but I know for me, the biggest dream in my heart is scary. It’s crazy! It doesn’t make sense.

I find myself asking, “God…is that really you?”

And yesterday I heard Him tell me, “If it doesn’t make sense, it probably is me!”

God asks us to do things that don’t make sense.

In fact, a preacher chick I admire once said to me, “there is NO NATURAL way a supernatural destiny can be mapped out….”

So as my friend said…Go after the biggest dream in your heart. Especially the ones that don’t make sense.

God’s your provision. Get out of the way and give Him a chance to prove it to you.

What’s the biggest dream in your heart?”
