This is going to sound crazy, but I don't care! God spoke to me through a dream, and I'm going to tell you about it!
For years I've been struggling with fear and not knowing what I want out of life. This week was another rough one, and since today's Friday and I had a couple hours to spare, I decided to take a nap. This is something I rarely do.
I don't usually remember my dreams, but I remember seeing a well-known actress and a well-known talk show host doing an interview. I had seen these two women do an interview before, but the conversation they were having in this dream was completely new to me.
The actress was talking about her success, and what she believes is necessary to become successful and find fulfillment. This is what she said:
It doesn't make sense...
You would be mistaken...
To consider an idea, action, or goal
And then dismiss it because, "No one has done it before."
Because those are exactly the things that you should be trying to do. Those are the things that you are meant to do.
And then I woke up.
I don't care what anybody says, I know that that was God speaking to me. I'm not quite sure what my purpose is (what I'm supposed to do that "no one has done before"), but I know for sure that I have one. I've been focusing on the wrong things and asking the wrong questions all this time. And now it's up to me to stop being afraid and figure out what my own never-before-done thing is.
Thank you Jesus for revelation, rest, and revelation through rest.
