You are in a relationship with the God who spoke the world into being, who hung the stars in place, who created that dream in your heart. You may have many opportunities in your lifetime, but none better than this–to let God take you by the hand and lead you into all he has for you. –Holley Gerth
Maybe you’re asking:
What is a God-sized dream?
Could God have a dream for me?
What could it possibly be?
How do I pursue it?
Isn’t dreaming selfish?
Best-selling author Holley Gerth answers these questions and more in her just-released book, You’re Made for a God-sized Dream: Opening the Door to All God Has for You.
She explains a God-sized dream as “‘more of Jesus, more of what he’s created you to be, more of what he’s called you to do.’ Less of you, actually, and more of all he is and all he has for you–which is beyond what you can even imagine.’”
What that looks like will be unique to each person, whether it is:
Starting a business
Starting a family
Quitting a job to stay home with the kids
Healing a relationship
Healing your personal wounds
Working in ministry
or whatever He places on your heart.
Every dream or desire you have that comes from God is an invitation for more intimacy with him.
Can you tell I’m a bit inspired by the wealth of quote-worthy content in this book?
In You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream, Holley takes you step by step. She provides questions and tools to help you identify your strengths, skills, and interests. She identifies obstacles you will face in pursuing your dream and how to overcome them. She includes specific stories of real life people and their dreams fulfilled.
And she is your own personal cheerleader. Holley encourages each step of the way, with both Scriptural truth and her own experience. Reading this book is like having coffee with a heart friend.
She reminds you of things like: Our part of the dream is obedience. God’s part is results.
About 100 women and I have been working through this book, and our own dreams, alongside Holley. I am blessed to now call her friend. The genuine love that permeates her writing is evident in her own real-life interactions too.
I am not quite objective in my evaluation of this book.
I am invested in it, and perhaps that speaks louder.
Pursuing God-sized dreams is life-changing.
And this is the resource you want to to do it.
