Trust in the Power that Created Us

Muskoka River
As we commit to our real dreams, we commit to ourselves. As we commit to ourselves, we also commit to trusting the power that created us. We are then aligning ourselves not with false gods but with the true power of the universe, the Great Creator through whose power all dreams are possible. Julia Cameron, Walking in This World Page 238

Committing ourselves to God in all areas of life makes it possible for all our dreams to become a reality. We commit to pursuing our creative dreams and, at the same time, we commit to trusting those dreams to the power of the one who created us. The Great Creator created us with those dreams instilled in our very being—the dreams we have for ourselves are the very dreams God gave to us at the time of our birth.

Sometimes we accuse ourselves of dreaming too big. This is false pride. In most cases we tend to dream too small. God has created us with amazing gifts and dreams and we barely touch the surface of what is possible for us. We doubt ourselves, our gifts, and our abilities instead of committing to and trusting in the power that created us.
Like the disciples, we are astounded by God’s promise to us, but Christ looks at us intently, deep into our soul, and says, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10: 27 (New Living Translation)
Trust then in what is possible with God in your life and on your side; dream big and align yourself with the Great Creator; search deep within yourself for the dream that God instilled in you at the beginning of your life on earth; take hold of that dream and turn it into a reality to the glory of God.
