Now, I'm not a dreamer, at least I wasn't a dreamer. As a child or teen, I never dreamed of what I would do one day, or who I would marry. Life just kind of happened.
Needless to say, I wasn't sure why we were there at the Quitter conference, until I heard this one word...IF.
Matt Chambers was talking about finding balance and eliminating excuses. And when he talked for just a moment about the word IF drowning out our dreams, I literally caught my breath.
I never thought about it before,
but the word IF leads to either
HOPE or EXCUSE.
Think about it...
"I'd love to work on that missions project, IF ONLY I had more money."
"I'd love to help tutor children IF ONLY I had more time."
That IF leads to excuses.
Now think about this...
"It's only an hour of my time, but WHAT IF God could use it to ___________?
"It's only a few dollars, but WHAT IF I used it to ___________?
"WHAT IF..." brings HOPE!
It's my new favorite phrase. It holds so much promise!!
I am only a beginner dreamer, but the fire has been lit, and I see so much promise. Thank you Jon Acuff & Friends!
This is just one of the many "take-aways" from a loaded weekend~
