This has been a motto for myself for sometime now, and I’m really just beginning to understand what it means. I have always dreamed big, but mostly I have never thought my dreams are possible. I have had many dreams that have come and gone, but now I will dream and I will achieve, not on my own will, but by the power of God as he says in Philippians 4:13 “For I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.”
When I was a sophomore in high school I dreamed of being an Iowa State Basketball player, and well that didn’t happen. I focused more on football and the girlfriend, and let the dream fall away.
At the beginning of my freshman year at Iowa State I dreamed of becoming a rich engineer that has everything, monetary wise, and has no worries about finances. That fell away as I realized the focus of my heart at that point did not match up with the rest of the way I want to live my life.
When I was a child I wanted to be a G.I. Joe, but that fell away as I realize how real war is and that not everyone is the hero and how hard it would be. So I gave up on this one, ‘cuz I thought it was too hard and the next cool thing came a long.
My senior year in high school I came up with a dream. This dream is absolutely unattainable by man alone. I mainly just want to help people, and help them to know my best friend Jesus. I want to help them walk with him and have the best life they can, not an easy life, but a better life than they have. My dream is to lead or start the Largest Youth Group/Outreach in the World. I don’t want the biggest to have glory to Adam, but I want the biggest, because I want to impact that many people’s lives. I want to build up my Lord’s Kingdom and the next generation of leaders. I know that if through God I can attain this than anyone can attain anything through him. I don’t know where or any idea how to get to this dream, but I will not give up. This dream has been dwelling in me for nearly two year now, and I am establishing it now. Tear it down if you want, but it’s my dream not yours. You may say it’s not possible, but I already know that I personally cannot achieve it.
Go Big or Go Home. Dream big enough that if man alone can obtain it, than it is not nearly big enough of a dream. This is how I will live from now on, by faith in Christ who strengthens me. Be Extreme and step out and dream! What is your dream? You may need to write it down and let a few people know it to really speak it into truth. Email me and I will pray for your dream as I hope people will do for mine!
