Living the dream
September 1, 2009
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
There was once a young man by the name of Dwight L. Moody who was led to Jesus Christ by a shoe salesman in Chicago.
Afterwards, as he was getting started in his Christian life, Moody went to a conference and he heard a man say, "The world has yet to see what God could do with one man totally consecrated to him." Those words found a place in young Dwight L. Moody's heart, and he embraced them and said, "By God's grace, I will be that man."
God eventually raised Moody up to be one of the most powerful evangelists in the history of the Christian faith. And it all started with a dream God gave to Moody as a new believer.
Far too many people reach the end of their life only to ask, "What could I have done if I had only dared to live the dream God gave me?"
Today, I plead with you, please don't let that be your story. Ask God to reveal to you the dream he has placed in your heart… and then pray for the courage to live it!
ARE YOU READY TO LIVE THE DREAM GOD HAS PLACED IN YOUR HEART?
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
