Share the Dream

Share the Dream is the slogan for Noah’s Ark. Sharing is a great concept when it comes to dreams. I believe you must always connect your life with something larger than your lifestyle. This will cause you to stretch and grow. As you share the dream you see new things. The canvas of your thoughts are stretched and begin to grow new ideas. Ideas that help you dream.
By sharing you also get to experience the enjoyments of a dream that transcends night dreams to life. You share first hand in how the dream comes to life. You know the challenges that were faced and will be faced. You celebrate the small things and take pride in the goals that are reached. You are part of something larger than your life.
When you share a dream that develops community and community builds purpose so go and share the dream.
You need people to see your dream come to life.

Something interesting Dreams.

There are some dreams that wake you up in the middle of the night and you think wow that was awesome, but then you go back to sleep and forget all about it. Waking up the next morning trying to remember what you dreamt but to no avail. The dream is lost!

Then there are other dreams that keep you up at night. You try to go back to sleep but to no avail. You must deal with the dream. It may take hours and a few pieces of paper to record the dream. But even with this dream it can be lost. It can be lost in a notebook, lost in your memory, lost in reality!

These are dreams you dream at night. They are fun, thrilling and spiritual. But they always happen at night when you are asleep.

But there are dreams that wake up your life. These dreams are under devolved at first. You may not have this dream in color and it may not even be a full picture. However over time and with the help of others you begin to see the dream move from your imagination to reality.

Dare to dream awake.

I have experienced dreams that wake your life. One is the dream of Noah’s Ark. I plan to write about this dream over the next few days stay tuned….

When and Where

Joshua 1:16
Any time you venture out into a new path you should make sure those who are going with you are willing. Some paths require willingness not sacrifice. People that sacrifice to go with you tend to walk a little slower. Willingness keeps the pace. Sacrifice is a good thing, and some are willing to sacrifice. However, there is a point when you just say “when and where” instead of “do I have to?” We move our words to phrases like “I get to.” This perspective is a little different.

When I connect to the mission it is my privilege to serve in any capacity.

Just tell me when I need to be there and what I need to do and I will go.

Just a thought

Who’s Right
In the world of the church we have so many voices. Just to give you an example I was flipping through “Christian TV” and heard one ministry giving free holy spring water, one ministry giving holy oil, yet another ministry talking about the “Gift of Tongues”, and another speaking about Israel, and still another talking about prophecy. Some had opposing ideas and others agreed. It all seems a bit confusing. Is there a ministry I should follow, is there one I shouldn’t follow? Well of course you would say “YES”. So which one? I believe if a ministry is truly following the leading of G-d then it has its place however

I think I will remain a follower of Jesus…
38"This is the great and foremost commandment.
40"On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."

He IS!

What does G-d look like? I mean after all he has to have some shape, form or something about Him.

Deuteronomy 4: 15-16a
15"So watch yourselves carefully, since you did not see any form on the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire, 16 so that you do not act corruptly and make a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure…

Moses warned the children not to shape G-d. huh?
I love asking the question WHY?

As I was reading this passage this morning I thought of all the times I have tried to shape G-d. I tried to shape Him into my box and my world. How is it that I think I can take a being with no shape and shape it? Could it be that I have tried (not successfully) to bring the Almighty G-d down to my way of life? Maybe that is why I’m a little tired? What if I embraced the awesome idea of G-d having no shape or form?

G-d appeared to early followers in a cloud and pillar of fire. Interesting!

Clouds and fire have two things in common.
· There is no cookie cutter shape to either.
· Both change from one second to another.
G-d IS! There is no shape or form. He simply IS!
· He IS covering you
· He IS consuming you
· He IS cooling you from the heat of the day
· He IS warming you from the harsh cold
· He IS leading you
I think I can see G-d working better when I stop trying to get Him to work in my box and on my terms.
