I love this! One of the things that breaks my heart the most is when great Kingdom Dreams die! I think there are two parts – and I love what you wrote about the first one and how you stated it – we need to believe in the dreams God has given us. The second part is taking the steps to bring the dream into reality. This is my deepest Why for doing The Cause (www.thecause.org) and building a structure to help leaders accomplish their dreams – seeing Kingdom dreams come alive instead of die. Thanks for writing Seth – you are a wonderful encouragement and I love the way you champion people into their callings!
What Can Kill Your Kingdom Dream
Insofar as a dream is an idea that could one day become a reality, God is a dreamer and He loves to share His dreams. He visits us through our dreams and He invites us into His own. All through the Bible we see God speaking to people through dreams.
The World Race was a dream that He gave to Ana-Marie Franken and then to me. We stewarded it for a while and then have been busy giving it away to others.
Our ministry to vulnerable children in Swaziland has always been a part of His dream for a Church that cares for widows and orphans in their distress.
Three years ago God downloaded His dream for the Stations of the Cross to Holli Scott. She recruited 18 artists to share their art in a pre-Easter interactive experience. This past weekend, we saw the dream realized – it was a wonderful experience. Holli said this about her dream:
I really believe it’s His dream and I just got the honor of seeing it, saying yes, and taking steps forward.
Thanks, Morgan. I love watching you help activate the kingdom dreams of others!
