Day 9 / Dream Factory (pages 57-61)
My ah-ha from today’s reading:
“Take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
I absolutely love how Mark points out this verse is not necessarily about sinful thoughts. Haven’t we all heard that before?? Yep.
Take those thoughts – those dreams, those ideas, those what ifs – take them all captive.
Write them down!
And make them obedient to Christ.
Let’s get to work, friends.
Let’s not just dream and think and write during this season of prayer. Over the next 30 or so days, let’s encourage each other to jump. Let’s be obedient. Let’s do what we’ve been putting off.
I’ll be first.
For almost 2 years I’ve dreamed of my own business. One that isn’t like a normal business. One that combines encouragement, blogging, inspiration for your home and family stuff – all in one place. I want to write and draw and paint and create and inspire.
And for 2 years, that’s really all I’ve had. A dream. Nothing more. A glimpse in my mind and a whole lot of people on Instagram running with their own creative businesses.
Last night I sat in my war room and started documenting. Actually putting words and ideas onto paper. Brian asked me a few weeks ago what the name of my business was going to be. I had no clue. I hadn’t even thought about that. That changed last night.
I didn’t just think, I acted. I researched names (a ton that were already taken..bummer). But y’all. I started DOING! Obedience.
How about you? What thoughts do you need to take captive? What is that thing that God won’t let you forget? What is it that He is calling you deeper into?
This is the season to take those thoughts captive…write them down…and start acting in obedience. You won’t be alone. There’s a whole bunch of us in this challenge and I’m praying a bold prayer: God, make this group a DREAM FACTORY! Help us all to hear You like we’ve never heard You before. Make things happen, Lord.
