I wrote this on my Facebook yesterday:
"God doesn't work within the boundaries of time or finance. He breathed the universe in a second and hangs the earth on NOTHING. He sees our lives as one glorious tapestry from beginning to end and we get to dream WITH him!!!! Oh my gosh. Seriously. Small thinking always leads to discouragement. It's time to think BIGGER!!!"
It's so true! So in order to think bigger... I begin every day reading or declaring something encouraging from the word of God. I don't know if you can relate, but it seems soooo often we wake each day behind the eight ball. We haven't even opened our EYES yet, and our pesky little thoughts try and come in and tell us all about how we can't do this, we can't do that, there's not enough money for that... blah blah blah whatever!
So I have to get in early. It's what I have done this morning. By reading God's truth and setting that as a benchmark, it helps my mind to think from his unlimited perspective, instead of my human, often silly, limited thinking. It sounds funny, but even just saying hi to Jesus helps me. :) It's true! I mean think about it, he's always with us, so it's rude not to say hi right?! It just makes me aware of him. He's always waiting to talk to us and tell us amazing stuff. And He wants to tell you something new today.
I love Job 26:7...
"He stretches out the stars over empty space, he hangs the earth on nothing."
NOTHING! Can we even fathom that? I was having a conversation with a friend on Saturday night and we were freaking each other out with God's greatness... He holds the universe in his HAND. The u-n-i-v-e-r-s-e. And in that same hand, he holds our hearts and all our dreams. Oh my gosh. Stop it.
He sees you right now. He sees all cry out for. All you dream of. And he especially sees ALL the dreams still hidden within the depths of your precious heart. And he is COMMITTED to calling them out.
I've been talking to so many people about dreams lately, and I am finding that "money" is such a big hindrance to dreaming. So often it feels like it rules our lives. But there has to be another way right? There is. We need to change our thinking. It's the key. You and I are citizens of heaven. CITIZENS. So that means we are from heaven, with access to ALL that is there, which is every resource we need for our dreams. So how do we do this? By totally renewing our mind and changing our thinking. We renew our minds by seeing ourselves from God's perspective, and by realising who we are. We are his kids! So we are royalty. And by elevating our thinking we are confident to know we can ask him to provide all we need to see our big dreams happen. Whenever I freak out about money I remind myself, "He owns the world. The WORLD. Everything is his!"
"The earth is the Lords, and everything in it!!" (Psalm 24:1)
I truly believe there is SO much more for you. Hidden treasures lie in your heart and I want to help you awaken them. Even now as I am watching my dreams happen, there are limitations I am facing. So daily I have to renew my mind because I am believing for some big miracles financially. And it WILL happen. Dreaming without money is powerful. So let's do this TOGETHER. Despite your financial situation, it's time to DREAM.
My mindset about all this has changed over the last three years and I am writing this 12 month Mentoring Program ALL about it. I really believe it's got the potential to change lives, so pray about it. I'd love you to do it. Of course I will be still posting and encouraging you on Facebook etc, but if you want to hear in depth about what I have literally done over the last three years to have this mindset of abundance, I'd love to tell you all about it in great detail. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can have a quick chat. :)
I love you and believe in you... thank you for being on this journey with me. We can do this!!!
You are going to have an amazing week my friend!
