I hear what she is saying and I think we all know that we have given up many dreams over the years. Often I forget there is a higher purpose in the letting go phase. I have not created the amazing business the ardent sparrow did (see her blog!) Truly amazing, inspiring, creative and beautiful. Lovely is the word for my my friend!
A seed was planted and she went for it. God used it and now he is asking her to let it go, for now. That is so difficult and I admire you my friend for allowing God to walk you through this time of letting go and holding on to Christ your greater strength. You have encouraged me with your strength. Thank you for your words of wisdom and the friend you are to me!
I did not know I was going to read this today...my dd (darling daughterbelow) let go of a dream today of riding horses with the older group of children. A small dream perhaps, but to her it was her world today. She let go of something dear to her heart. In her seven year old way she dealt with it, and well. Did she ride, absolutely. She loved every minute on the trails!! However, not too far in the distance were her brothers grooming, saddling and riding, her dream, their reality.
God knows that about her! He cares about that part of her soul. He will meet her needs. I am here to point her in that direction.
Again, ardent sparrow, thank you for your honesty!!
Dreams are gifts from God to glorify Him....
You will ride my dear, you will ride!!!
