Taking the Step TODAY


Photobucket
Don't put of for tomorrow what you can accomplish today. I have heard that phrase all my life. And yet I still have a tendency to put things off. All the time. But when it comes to God Sized Dreams you can't keep putting it off. It isn't going anywhere and it's going to get louder the more you put it off. God is going to keep it right there in front of you over and over until you finally take the steps towards it and grab hold. When I first applied to be a part of Holley's Dream Team my dream looked a lot different then it does today. And that was only 3 months ago. But the more I journey in this dream and the more I try to really figure it out the more it changes shape. I took the step in January and started a blog dedicated to my dream of encouraging other moms in their journey of motherhood and their walk with God. I didn't keep putting it off. I took the leap. I also started a manuscript for a book that I have always dreamed of writing only to find that the words weren't there. I have lots of crazy stories about motherhood with 4 boys but I can't get them down on paper. And once I started writing it I honestly felt God telling me not right now. I am drawn to dedicate more time to this blog and encouraging others. I am drawn to step out of my comfort zone and submit posts to other "bigger" blogs as a guest. I don't know where this road will go but I am going to follow it. I also feel drawn to spend more time with my boys and less time on the computer and in my virtual world of Facebook and Twitter. After all, how am I supposed to encourage you as a mother if I am neglecting my own children. I know that dreams morph, the become what God wants them to be. You just have to stay on that path and keep walking. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and stay with God. God will tell you where to go and when but don't be like Moses and have every excuse in the book to ignore his prompting. Grab hold of his outstretched hand and follow him. Take the step today and quit putting it off for tomorrow.

Linking up today with Holley Gerth and the rest of the "Dream Team"

  1. Thanks for sharing Laura! Our bible study just read about Moses making excuses last night. It got me thinking that I too can hold back and make silly excuses. Love that you are continuing to pursue this amazing dream of yours!

  3. Mine too seems to be taking a different form than when I first started. I guess when you get serious about them and start seeking God and making steps, He leads you where He wants you to go, and sometimes it's not where you think.
