Dreaming and Following. Those two words are so closely related but separated by so much, usually our own thoughts or perceptions. Here’s my reasoning for that statement.
Several years back, I was struggling to make a decision about the path my life should take. Being a Christian in a church which is big on praying with Elders, I went down to be prayed over. It wasn’t the immediate life changing prayer but something did happen. While I was at the alter, another Elder came to me and said he had received a word for me. He told me that I would be writing, he saw my future and writing was involved. I blew that off knowing I was in school and every week I was writing a paper. I just thought that the writing was part of what I needed in order to graduate.
Now, fast forward. I went through a very hard divorce and in counseling was told to journal. Write down what I was feeling, keep up with my life on paper. Writing…again, there was that word. So I did keep that journal for months and stopped. But here I am, after several years, a challenge by my son writing and telling my story. .
My story doesn’t end there. I felt a calling to write a book…so stay tuned. It’s in progress. Writing, that one word that I dismissed was somehow tied to a future I did not know was coming. Keep listening, keep dreaming. This blog is a way of writing so never stop and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
