True Self

What is the dream God planted in you?

~~~

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose hope is the Lord. He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream.

~~~

God plants seeds in our hearts.

They are God’s dreams for us.

However, our egos generally have more self-centered dreams.

God’s seeds are many times ignored. They wither.

They become buried under mounds of materialism, consumerism and elitism promoted by our culture.

If God’s seeds are watered and nourished…they will grow into a tree with deep roots that stretch to the never-ending stream which is God.

Does that describe your life?

Are you living God’s dream for you?

Now is the time to turn from all that stifles your spiritual growth…and turn toward your true nourishment…God.

Stop.

Rest.

Listen.

Open your heart.

Be still.

Be.

    Let us be still and turn to God. Let us ask Him what it is that has tainted the soil of our hearts. Let us ask Him to come and heal us so that the dream He has given us can come to fruition.
