Last night, God answered one of my oh so silly little dreams. As I watched Amazon numbers for Shadowed by Grace over the weekend, I’d asked Him if it was possible for the Kindle version and the paperback to get on one of the top 100 lists at the same time. Now I can almost see the smile He must have had at my small request. To me it was HUGE. To Him it was nothing.
Yet at the same time, when I saw this happen at about 11 p.m. last night, it broke me. I literally sat at my computer with tears streaming down my cheeks because it was confirmation that God sees me and hears me. I know that. I really do.
But sometimes it helps to have that tangible confirmation, that little touch that makes it real, tangible, something I can hold on to.
At the same time, God’s whisper in my heart reminded me that what I considered big dreams weren’t God-sized. He’s daring me to live bigger, dare to ask for more.
Right now, the thought exhausts me. I’m overwhelmed with editing two books, finishing two classes, and teaching two more. But this seasons ends in three weeks. Now I’ve got this burbling urge to ask for more, a sense of excitement to wonder what God has next. I don’t know, but I’m eager to find out.
How about you? Do you have a growing sense of excitement? An urge to dream those God-sized dreams? We’ll relaunch the bookclub this week. Can’t wait to continue this journey with you!
