What Ifs

“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.” (William Carey, missionary to India) Is it okay to dream big dreams for ministry? Where does faith end and personal imagination begin? Or are they intertwined?  When we walk closely with God will He not put His desires in our hearts?  Psalm 37: 4 reads,  “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

I have to admit we have had recurring, “what ifs” over these last few years. We hold them loosely, our goal being to not run ahead of the Lord. At the same time, we won’t give up on these “what ifs” until the Lord redirects and closes the doors. He is able to do “abundantly more than all we can ask or think.”
