"Joseph had a dream..."  Genesis 37:5

What dream has God placed in your heart for 2011? What is burning inside that captivates your thoughts? What mountain is He asking you to climb? What has He planted deep within your soul that needs to be birthed?

What will it take to see the dream fulfilled? Early mornings? Late nights? Making a contact you've been hesitant to make? Stepping out in faith? Taking a risk? Investing money? Prayer and fasting? Persistence? Determination? Courage?

What will stop you from seeing the dream fulfilled? Finances? Lack of time? Opposition from others? Health? Not enough support? Anytime you have a dream you can expect opposition. Joseph had plenty of it...even from his family. But a pit, slavery, betrayal, temptation, trials, and prison couldn't stop him.

When will you see the dream fulfilled? After you let people know about it...after you start planning for it...after you take your first step toward it. It will be a journey. It certainly was for Joseph. But when God is the originator of a dream, it will become reality. Perhaps 2011 is the year for your dream. Dream....dream...dream.

Each day as I sit down to work on the Sunday Plus Curriculum it is a step of faith.

The vision (dream)is seeing churches committed to whole-istic discipleship of their own church children and then reaching out to walk through life with at-risk kids.

It takes feeling like a fool - who am I to think God would use me like this? It takes persistence in the midst of those feelings. It takes continual prayer - trusting that God would stop me if I wasn't walking with Him.

What could stop me - hopefully only God. Things that hinder are finances.

Had the joy of visiting a pilot church and heard from volunteers and moms how appreciative they are of the overall vision - it is way more than just the curriculum. That will certainly keep me going for a while.
