Picture from the summer of 2003
When I was 19 I spent my summer holidays roadtripping through California. It was the year before graduating High School and it was one of the most amazing summers. For years I had had the dream of traveling there and it was fulfilled in its own timing.
And that is how I have always been. I had a dream and went about it and it happened. But I feel something got lost along the way of graduating university, working a full time job, sort of having a routine in life. I found myself struggling to even put a dream into words. It was all very vague and not very me. I used to be the one telling everybody how important it is to dream and to chase them, trusting that God will fulfill them.
Yet my dreams over the last two years have somewhat been obsolete and unspoken of. This is not to say I didn't dream at all or I didn't accomplish anything. I do a lot of things, I live a great and amazing life but maybe I got lost a little in the hear and now forgetting to look into the future and make anything concrete.
I thought about this a lot this last weekend in London and how different it is to dream now, how much more courage it needs to step out and just go for it. It takes boldness to just take a step forward into the unknown, into doing what you actually want to be doing.
I want to be that kind of a woman. A woman who is not afraid to chase her dreams and make them reality. I believe God has a lot in store for me and by taking one step at a time and letting these dreams become reality and stepping out in faith and couarge I believe He is going to accomplish a lot through me. I want to be the visible image of an invisible Jesus here on earth! I don't want to regret anything.
So here I am, Lord! Use me, form me and let my dreams become reality.
