Trusting God with Your Dreams

28 DAYS OF SABBATH REST: PART 12

I’ve been thinking and dreaming about homeschooling my son for a couple of years now. This past month I’ve been thinking about it more seriously and wondering how it might become a reality. I work full-time and we need my income so we’d either need to make some major changes or figure out how to do both and make it work.

I go through stages of having dreams like this. In the past it’s been marriage, buying a house, and having a baby. I dwell on the desire and it’s hard to let it go. I’m realizing now that I need to trust God with these desires. These desires are for good things, but they are not primary. My desire above all else is for God.

And whether my current dream to homeschool actually comes to fruition or not, I will be content.
