the hard prayers and complicated dreams

Those God-sized prayers and dreams – you know, the big ones that no one really seems to understand but you and your Creator? The complicated ones. The ones you can’t get off your mind. The ones that keep you up at night and won’t let go. You don’t dare talk about them out loud because no one would get it and they would possibly label you as crazy.

Maybe that’s part of my silence.

Part of me has feared that no one would really get our dreams and label us as the crazy ones.

Maybe we are.

Maybe I’m just crazy enough to believe that God is able to direct our every step. He opens doors we never planned and He has most certainly slammed doors shut that I wanted so badly to keep open.

I’ve learned to hold my plans loosely in the palm of my open hands.

And maybe I don’t have to explain the mysterious ways of God. Maybe I just need to show up each morning and do the things He has put in front of me today.

That is enough.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.

Psalm 143:8

Let’s show up and do the hard and complicated things, even when we can’t see the end result and everyone might think we’re weird. I’ll be the weird one with you.
