Saturday Scribbles Vol 2.16

Welcome my friends to, at long last, an edition of Saturday Scribbles. My last one was in July. I've missed this. Today's post has been on my heart for a while, but it's been hard to find the words. I'm not even sure how well I'll be able to write this one.

When I was in Dallas for Mary Kay's Seminar, the big theme was to find your dream. Sure, we all dream. And I'm not just talking about the dreams that you have at night when you fall asleep. But dreams of the heart.

I recently started reading a nonfiction book, You Were Made for A God-Sized Dream by Holley Gerth. Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Me reading nonfiction?! Well it happens...sometimes.

But anyway, this book talks about figuring out if God has placed a dream on your heart. Not a goal mind you, but a dream. One thing I've learned through the Mary Kay Seminar as well as chapter one of this book (I told you I just started it!) is that it's ok for your dream to change. I know mine has.

When I was little, I wanted to grow up to teach 3rd grade because I fell in love with my 3rd grade teacher. The courses that I took in college were tailored towards that dream. After I graduated, I was hired on as a 3rd grade teacher. So here I was working in my dream job, but you know what? I wasn't truly happy. Yes, I had achieved my dream, but I see now that it wasn't what God really wanted for me to do with my life.

So my dream has changed. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what the dream God's given me is, but I know one thing - both my Mary Kay business and my current job of working as a trainer in the City of Houston's HR department - are a part of it. I know that I am where I am supposed to be for now.

So what are the dreams of your heart?
