Focus on YOUR Dream

Fulfilling your dream might mean you have to deny what other people might be dreaming for you in order to discover and focus on what you are dreaming for yourself.

Fulfilling your dream might mean you have to gain some knowledge or experience to develop your talent.

Fulfilling your dream might mean you have to be open to other voices yet discerning of their impact.

And any doubts you have about whether you can do what you’re dreaming are coming from a place of fear.

And the special gift of ministry you received when I laid hands on you and prayed—keep that ablaze! God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.” 2 Timothy 1:6-7

Inhale Focus, Exhale Distraction…
Inhale Influence, Exhale Interference…
Inhale Fulfillment, Exhale Fear…

Free Your Dream

You wouldn’t have the dream you’re dreaming if you weren’t supposed to or weren’t able to live it. Isn’t that freeing? Doesn’t that relieve some of the pressure? Doesn’t that take away the fear?

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3:20, The Message

Inhale Dreaming, Exhale Repressing…
Inhale Relaxing, Exhale Stressing…
Inhale Living, Exhale Oppressing…

Prelude

We could choose to see everything we’ve experienced in the past as a prelude to and preparation for the magnificent present we are experiencing now…

What’s past is prologue.” ~ William Shakespeare, The Tempest

Preclude

We see our present experiences through the blurry filter of our past experiences. Time and time again, we allow our past to pop up and block our present. But our previous experiences don’t have to preclude what we want to do in the present. We don’t have to be stuck in our story.

…affirming our existence requires affirming the past that led to it.” ~ Todd May

Prevent

We can’t prevent, avoid or circumvent emotions. Our sadness, frustration, anger, hurt, jealousy, etc. are a part of the human experience. Our emotions are telling us something about how we are processing our experiences. We must go through them to get to wholeness.

…every emotion offers information about you that is important. When you ignore your emotions, you ignore that information.” ~ Gary Kukav, The Heart of the Soul.

Project

Projection of our fears onto someone else or even into the future usually leads to fear-based decisions. We “what if” our way out of focus, make decisions with our blurred vision and wonder how it all went wrong.

The Man said, “The Woman you gave me as a companion, she gave me fruit from the tree, and, yes, I ate it.” God said to the Woman, “What is this that you’ve done?” “The serpent seduced me,” she said, “and I ate.” Genesis 3: 12-13

Inhale Reality, Exhale Projection…
Inhale Right Now, Exhale “What If”…

Protect

There is a fine line between the boundaries that help us own what belongs to us and the borders that keep everybody and most emotions at bay. Healthy boundaries can protect us from ourselves. Borders and emotional walls can prevent us from experiencing humanity… others’ and our own.

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.” Galations 6: 4-5

Inhale Boundaries, Exhale Borders…
Inhale Protection, Exhale Overexposed…
Inhale Ownership, Exhale Blame…

When you insist on having a conversation with Person A about the text message you received from Person B, it might be a good time to turn in your playa card.
