When someone knows their purpose, everything in life becomes clearer.
I taught career planning to college students. The class focused on finding one’s purpose in life. I watched students faces light up as I dared them to DREAM BIG. I told them, “God is a big God, He wants you to dream big!”
The Holy Spirit whispered to me, “Connie, I want you to dream big also.” This confused me. I ignored the whisper because I felt like I already “lived the dream.” I loved teaching and inspiring young adults to take steps toward their destiny.
What more could God give me?
(Spoiler alert: A lot)
This “whisper” did not go away. I sensed something was about to happen in my life but I had no idea what.
Fast forward several years. It is difficult to describe how much has changed. I see where God first asked me to open up to the possibility of change. He wanted me to trust Him and His plan. He had a plan for me all along (see Jeremiah 29:11).
And the best part? I love what I do now more than I loved teaching college. I did not know that was possible. But God knew.
I believe God quietly knocks on the doors of many people’s hearts. I am not the only one. He waits for us to open up, to dream a little bigger, and to have a life that is greater than what we could previously imagine (see Ephesians 3:20).
What does He whisper to you?
Do you sense that something is about to happen in your life?
Has God shown you a dream for your life?
Give Him a full and trusting “YES!”
