As we prepare to start our journey into Dreaming God-Sized Dreams, I had asked Holley Gerth if she wanted to say anything as we got started. This is such a wait to get started. Thanks for stopping by, Holley! (and if you haven’t yet, be sure to grab her book, You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream and join us on this journey. You can buy it here at CBD or Amazon. Your local bookstores should have it, too.)

God, your thoughts are not my thoughts (Isa. 55:8).
What you have planned for me is beyond all I can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:19–20).
Yet you have also promised to reveal it to me through your Spirit (1 Cor. 2:8–10).
So I open my heart, mind, and life to more of you—to whatever you have for me.
Where there is ongoing fear in my life, please replace it with faith.
Where there is a desire to hold back, give me the strength to move forward.
Where there is a desert, lead me into the Promised Land you have prepared for me.
I embrace that my part is to pray, plan, and most of all seek you.
And yours is to get me where you want me to go (Prov. 16:9 and 19:21).
Wherever that is, that’s where I want to be too. Because there’s no better place in this world or the next than with you (Ps. 84:10).
Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth (especially my little corner of it) as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:10).
In Your name, amen.
