Have you ever spent time with a dreamer? I have and at times is is exhausting.
It feels like the dreamers around us live in a different world. The dreamers world is filled with endless possibilities. They aren't scared by what has happened in the past. They don't see things as impossible. They see what could be instead of what is. Dreamers ask what if.
You will know that you have been around a dreamer when you leave the conversation and you are both excited about what could be and terrified because they never said how they were going to make the dream happen.
Dreamers live in a world that is filled with faith.
Faith makes it possible to please God. It is the only thing that we do to please God.
Hebrews 11 tells us about the heroes of our faith. In verse 6 we read this, "It’s impossible to please God apart from faith."
The crazier the dream and the larger the faith needed, the more it pleases God. Last year our state had a crazy big dream to raise half a million for Speed the Light and BGMC. I didn't see how it could be done. At the end of the year I was wrong. We brought in $3,000 above that goal.
This year we set a goal as a state for $1,000,000. I don't doubt that we can do it. Last year stretched my faith, this year we push forward.
Our students are going to give more than ever before. We set a goal greater than what our church has ever done. We want our students and children to dream big.
Whatever big drams that God has given you have the faith to believe that they are possible.
If you want to help be at church on March 6th as we have our BGMC service or you can donate online here. Make sure to put in Riverside A/G for church name to help us reach our goal. If you give $100 dollars you will receive a special shirt that we will present to you at a later date.
