Dream God-Sized Dreams ~ Fear ~ 2/2/13


God-sized Dream = A desire in your heart for more of what God has for you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Q.  What’s one fear you’ve faced when it comes to your God-sized dream?  And what’s the truth that’s bigger than that fear?

My fear, especially during times like the past few week, is that my anxiety/depression will keep me from living the abundant life that God has planned for me.  My fear sometimes keeps me frozen from moving forward.

My dream has always been to be a wife and a mother and raise my children to love and obey God.  Sometimes I feel that I fail at even the simplest of tasks, such as keeping the house semi-clean.  It makes me question if I am being the wife and mother that I should be.  Am I good enough?

The answer to that is a resounding YES!  Through Christ, I am good enough.  More than good enough.  My worth is not based on the state of my house or if I forget to pack my kids' lunch on a day that the school menu is "icky".

My worth is based in Him.  Who I am through Him.  His child, His daughter, His bride, His princess!  

And that is the truth!

  1. Our adequacy is not from ourselves; it is from Christ. Enjoyed your encouragement.

  2. Blessings to you and yours. I know that screaming voice that says "NOT WORTHY". And it's just not speaking truth.
    *hugs*
    You're WORTH it. And you can, and already ARE. G-d says your worth and value just IS. It's not earned, it's not un-earned. It just IS. I believe Him.

  3. Always worthy...even when we don't feel as if we are. All because of grace--God's grace and mercy. He reminds me of it often--and sometimes He uses special people like you.

  4. Thanks for your honest struggles with worthiness. I, too, have wanted to be a good wife and mother and raise my kids to glorify God.(my kids are now all young adults and have turned out wonderfully..God's grace) I've struggled with worth through the years for being a "stay at home" mom. Even thought I know the truth. I am worthy because I am His daughter. Thanks for your encouraging words!! Blessings!

  5. It's interesting... I just hit "publish" on a post about some young girls who often struggle with feeling worthy -- and then I wind up here (from Spiritual Sunday). Perhaps you'd like to join me in being an encourager to the girls. My post tells how: Celebrate Love
