“Some of us are standing in the middle of our God given dreams but we don’t see it because it looks different than we thought it would.” - Pastor Steven Furtick
I came across these words when I opened my Instagram yesterday and have really been looking at my situation with a different set of eyes ever since.
My husband and I were reminiscing about the first piece of furniture he brought home for me to play around with. At the time, I had no idea I had a talent for furniture transformation. God had tucked that away for a special season and unveiled it in His due time.
Looking back, I could have never imagined that I would be considered a respected furniture artist amongst my extremely gifted and talented peers, selling and shipping my furniture art nationwide. It blows my mind where God has taken Renewed Spirit Home in just a few short years while blessing me with 3 beautiful healthy boys and one on the way!
I wonder if some of us are missing the fact that we are in it - we are standing in the middle of the dream that God put into our heart. I think sometimes the struggles, the slow seasons, criticism, the spirit of comparison and the pressure we put on ourselves to meet certain deadlines and goals can blur our vision resulting in us missing the blessings of today.
Today I am thankful that God answered my prayers of yesterday and I am standing right smack in the middle of my God given dreams.
With Love & Gratitude,
