Dear God Letters, Dream Team

God, Do you happen to own a magic wand?

be still and knowGod,

Yes, Carey!

I feel like I have been doing an awful lot of talking AT you but not as much listening.

Are you there?

Of course I am here. I don’t go anywhere. 

Okay. Well did you hear me?  I just said I am listening.

You are. But I feel like you are waiting for me to tell you what you want to hear. You are waiting for me to be your cheerleader, your solution giver, your Fairy Godthingy. 

I am just looking for some sense of reassurance in this dream chasing, Anything would be good.

What? Are you looking for me to wave a magic wand and make all your fears disappear and all your hopes show up?

Can you do that? I feel like that is what it is gonna take.

Carey, You know better than that!

I hate to admit it but I don’t feel like my faith is big enough for this journey. I feel like I can barely see the steps in front of me.

Could that be THE point? Instead of planning out how this dream should go and looks could you just let go and let me be The Director? Could you? Could you trust me enough and the ways I have come through for you and trust that there is purpose in every action? Could you?

Um. You seem a little ticked at me?

Frustrated is the word. Are your listening ears really on because I asked you a question and you didn’t answer? Could you simply let me be God and you be you?

Gulp. I could.

Remember you have traveled the desert land before. Hang on to that memory and know I AM is at work. 

 

Today is I join my Dreamer girls at Holley’s place! Come on over and say “Hi!”

  • Fun conversation with God. I loved it!

    Sometimes the point is that life is just absolutely bigger than we are and we need God. Just so glad He’s ALWAYS here. As close as the mention of His Name. We love you, Lord!

    And blessings to you, my sister, God-sized dreamer!

    • Thanks for your encouraging thoughts. I love watching Him work it is just the patience in waiting that gives me the wigggles. :)

    Love this, friend. :) I am so guilty of trying to do it my own way…thanks for the reminder that He’s got it! He does, and we can trust Him for the results. Blessings on your day!

    • Thanks for letting me know I am not alone. Prayers for you as well!

  • Such a great reminder, Carey! I too seem to always be in that state of having to let go of “my way,” and just trust that God’s got this! Thank you for your words, they are such a blessing today :)

    There is a song by Point of Grace that says “I run on up ahead, I lag behind.”, I think we all struggle with not walking in God’s timing – I know I am. Great reminder for me to wait on Him. Thanks

  • I love this! Have you ever read “The Dream Giver”… after reading this post I bet you’d really enjoy it :)
