my favorites: book
since i don’t read books very much, i thought i would i get my favorite book out of the way (you won’t see much on books from here on out).
my favorite book: The Dream Giver – Bruce Wilkinson
Over 3 years ago this book was introduced to me. And before I’d always been a huge advocate of “reaching for your dreams, no matter what”, but what this book instructed for me was understanding the difference between the dreams I have for myself and the BIG dream God has for me. Not only is this one of the only books I’ve ever read without CliffsNotes but it also made a lasting impact on life. Bringing me to a point of surrender. To die to myself and my desires and awaken to the dream I was born to fulfill.
Here’s an excerpt:
Each person has been created for a life of purpose and significance. In fact, from childhood we deeply and inherently desire to know and pursue a life’s dream. Our true dream is also the dream of The Dream Giver—the destiny uniquely fashioned for each of us. Yet not one in ten people is actively pursuing their life dream… The risk of not pursuing our destiny is disillusionment, fear, compromise and corruption. But the promise of pursuing our dream is that we’ll fulfill our created purpose and be part of what the Dream Giver deeply desires to bring about in our lives and in our world.
You too have been given a Big Dream. One that can change your life. One that the Dream Giver wants you to achieve. Does your big dream seem hopelessly out of reach? Are you waiting for something or someone to make your dream happen?
