Dreaming With God
The world tells us that the way to make all our dreams come true is to set our own course and strive every day. But when it's all on us, we end up feeling exhausted, frustrated, and, disappointed when things don't turn out as we'd hoped. Have you ever wondered if there was a better way?
There is. God knows the desires of our hearts--he put them there. And he calls us to trust, to lean on him, and sometimes . . . to wait. Weaving together her unique perspective as a professional ballerina with profound truths drawn from Scripture and the life of faith, Sarah Beth Marr reminds us that we are not dreaming alone. If God has given us a dream, we can be sure that he will come alongside us as we work toward realizing it. Using her own story as a catalyst, Marr encourages women to surrender their plans to God, to stay in tempo with his Spirit, and to step into a deeper relationship with Christ. When they do, she says, they will be able to move confidently into the future, knowing that their dreams and God's desires are aligned in perfect harmony.
My thoughts: Apparently, God knew that I needed this book in my life at this moment! I loved the reminder in it that God gives us dreams and helps us to accomplish them. Sometimes those dreams look different than we originally thought, like when Sarah Beth thought she should dance with a larger ballet company, but God lead her to a smaller one that enabled her to meet her husband. This book reminded me of some of my dreams over my lifetime and that it's good to continue to dream and seek God's will on those dreams. I love that this book approaches dreams differently than the world does and reminds the reader to continually seek the Lord, since He is the giver of dreams. I highly recommend this one!
