I would say I'm dreamer & definitely a planner. One of my dreams is to write a book one day. This has been a dream of mine for quite a few years now. Having said that, if I'm not currently writing, how will the thoughts muddled up inside of me ever make their way onto paper? And so, my goal to write on a weekly basis has become part of plan in achieving my dream of writing a book.
My husband & I have always been planners & dreamers. In fact, when we first got married we had some dreams that we wished to achieve before growing our family. In less then six months all our set dreams had become reality & suddenly we needed to dream more & bigger. Here we are four years & a half years later, still dreaming.
I'm realizing that as I get older time really does seem to go by faster, or perhaps it's true that, "time flies when you're having fun." Suddenly it's September & I find myself with only a few more precious months left in 2012. Although I'm a planner & set goals for myself, to say that I'm good at setting deadlines is another story. That being said for the time being my goal is to write once a week until the end of the year. Maybe this is a big goal. This fall seems to be bringing all sorts of changes & challenges with it. Hopefully with everything going on around me I'm not setting myself up for failure, rather stretching myself & my capacity.
Psalm 37:4 states:
Take delight in the ,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
I believe this to be truth, and so as I plan & dream, I know that ultimately the One who gave the dream will be the One to ultimately make it come to pass. In the meantime I'll be taking delight in Him & doing what I've been enabled to do.
