in the last two weeks, there has been a revolving conversation. person after person continues to bring up certain desires of my heart. desires that i have laid down. desires i still have but almost have lost hope for out of the self protection from the pain of disappointment.
it started when the Lord spoke to me in colorado. then since then person after person. they don’t all know each other. i haven’t talked about these desires at length with many of them. if i have, i wasn’t talking about them or hadn’t recently as they spoke.
it makes me think of proverbs 25:11
A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Amplified Bible
so as i press into the timely words which coincide with what He is already revealing to me, i see how i view His character flawed…and the flaw leads right back to the place of self-protection from disappointment.
then comes the invitation to dream. to dream without restraint. to dream those dreams that seem impossible and unattainable.
and in it all, it makes me desire ever more to be listening so as to speak a timely word in someone else’s life. a word from the King of Kings to His child that begins to change the trajectory of their life. for it is all about what God is saying…not just what He said (Kris Valloton).
