Dream Big" is a beautiful encouraging poem inspired by the Holy Spirit that the Lord blessed me with one day.
In God's word He says through the apostle Paul, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."( Philippians 4:13)
The Lord must often remind me of this verse and this truth. He asks me in Christ to "dream big." He says to remember that through Christ I can do all things. To remember that He empowers me to do all things that He asks me to do for Him. It is the Lord who sows His dreams in my heart and then gives me the power and grace to accomplish them as I rely on His Holy Spirit to guide me in His wisdom and understanding.
For there are so many things I don't know how to do that He asks me to do.
And yet He whispers to my heart "dream big."

In the illustration for my whimsical digital poetry prayer print, I’ve painted three characters chatting together. (It’s based on an earlier illustration I did several years ago and repurposed for this poem!)

This is a whimsical visual satire of events that happens all too often in reality.
Fortunately, we serve a wonderful God of mercy and grace who loves each of us despite our flaws and weaknesses.
