You have a dream.
How do you start something that has been bursting from your heart for years? How do you even know where to begin? All the dark fears of not getting it right. All the negative self-talk about failure and qualifications. ALL the fears of being judged.
How do you start? With itty-bitty steps. One positive thought at a time. Let that dream in your heart slowly creep out of the cracks in your droughty soul. That dream… the one that was put there with a fullness you can’t explain. Pour a little more hope on that thought that you keep going back to. Soon enough, a tiny stem will push up, out, and away from the dark. Birthed upwards, towards the brilliant light of faith.
That little stem will begin to reveal its design. Nothing big or flashy- at first. Nothing that screams for attention. It’s easily overlooked. But drop-by-drop, that little seed will grow with the hope YOU choose to pour on it. Fueled by just the smallest bit of faith in action. Knowing its purpose is to bring glory and pleasure to the Gardener. And if that is all who enjoys its beauty, so be it.
Every plant- every dream- is unique. It may sound the same or look similar to what you see around you, but it’s dangerous to compare your purpose. Don’t fall into the trap of insignificance. Because the Gardener has a grand design, and it won’t be complete until YOU are planted.
So here we are, being pulled along by our wild hearts. Let that dream of yours grow. Water your seeds. Let’s encourage one another and nourish the space in your hearts for strong roots to be established. It’s a vulnerable place to be alone, so lets plant together. There is space for everyone.
It’s time to grow.
