At the beginning of this year, I worked on my 2017 dream board and I hung it on my wall so I could look at it throughout the year.
In the center of the board, I pasted the word FLOURISH and then I added more words to it from there.
I looked up every verse I could find to help me understand better what flourishing should look like, because I am recreating a new dream for my life and I’m not even sure what I want it to look like.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the woman who trusts in the Lord and whose confidence is in Him. She will be like a tree transplanted beside the water, which sends out her roots by a stream, she will not be afraid when heat comes; for her leaves remain flourishing, and she will not be anxious in the year of drought and will not cease to bear fruit.”
One thing that I have discovered is that I’m not just dreaming for this year, I’ve begun to dream for a whole new future. And with that thought, I want to stretch myself in every area of my life to reach for things I’ve never allowed myself to dream for before. I want to destroy every limitation that could possibly try to stand against my God-given abilities and trust my Daddy to meet me in that place.
So, I’ve applied for Seminary, because why not?
I’m taking a backpacking trip to Yellowstone National Park with my favorite twins, because I’ve never done that before.
I’m going to take sailing lessons this summer, because I feel like God wants me to.
I’m launching a podcast and project this summer, because I want to reach 1 Million people for Jesus before I’m 50.
Here’s my first canvas painting, because I decided I needed to try painting 🙂
