“…for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”
“Slow down, Sparrow,” God said as I scurried out the door. “You’re so busy that you can’t hear the dream I’ve put inside of you.”
“I’m sorry. I’ve been feeling really pressured lately. I’ll slow down and listen for the dream. I promise I’ll chase after it with all I’ve got.”
“It doesn’t need chasing. It needs coaxing and encouragement. It needs to trust that you will take good care of it,” God explained.
I slowed my pace, then I stopped. “I think I’ve been hearing the dream for a while now, but I’ve been ignoring it.”
God rested His hand on my shoulder. “Listen deeply. It’s all there, inside of you. Trust it. Tend to it. Your life will unfold in ways you can’t even begin to imagine if you do.”
I nodded, then slowly went on with my day, stopping from time to time to listen to and encourage the little whisp of a dream that God had neatly tucked inside of my heart.
