Permission to Dream

One thing I really enjoy is touring homes for sale or model homes. It's something my sister and I have done for years, and we really enjoy it. We also enjoy window shopping clothes, shoes, furniture, travel trailers, and so many other things! Did you know that is a beautiful example of dreaming? When was the last time you did any of those things? Can you imagine any of those things happening? Imaging yourself having those things, purchasing those things is the first step. If you can't imagine you, you probably won't have it.

You may think that there is no logical reason for touring model homes, especially if you already own a home or don't think you can afford to purchase a home at this time in your life or why pretend to shop for furniture you don't need right now. But that's just what the Lord wants us to do. He wants us to dream and dream BIG. The Lord is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). Do you know what that means? It means that as big as we can dream, He wants to do BIGGER! 

If you haven't ever done any of those things I mentioned earlier, I want to encourage you to give yourself permission to dream--TODAY! There is no harm in window shopping and imagining what it would be like if you owned that home, owned that travel trailer, had that furniture in your home, bought those shoes. The only thing that might happen is that you begin to see what God can do for you! 

Have a wonderful, dream-filled week!
