Currently I am traveling across Vancouver Island, speaking to students on behalf of the Joy Smith Foundation and inspiring them to invest their time, money and resources on the things of this life that matter most. I want them to know that with God, the impossible is possible and when we choose to be braver than our fear, God can use us to do incredible things, like ending human trafficking in our neighborhoods and throughout our world.
Meeting these inspiring students and watching the passion burn in their eyes brings me this burning question in my heart right now…What would you do if you knew you could not fail? What sets your soul on fire? What is the burning force that inspires you to spring out of bed in the morning or keeping you awake late into the night?
When we really stop, slow down and think about it, what are the dreams of your heart that whisper possibility of a better world?
I believe if we quiet our hearts to hear the roar of Jesus, we will find the dream that you’ve kept closely guarded because you thought it was too big to handle. Yet that dream, when lived out for its purpose, is what makes you audacious.
No matter who you are or where your journey has brought you. We all have dreams waiting to be unleashed into their full potential. But if we’re honest most of us are still afraid.
I know at times I am.
Its easy to get comfortable, to slow down, to accept this season, to relax a little or ease into a safe routine. And while taking rest is absolutely vital to our journey, we cannot sit on the sidelines for so long that we miss the joy of running a good race.
If we only knew all that God has to offer…
We need to stop allowing fear to hold us back. Step beyond our comfort zones, where the impossible can be realized because of who we have on our team.
What if we truly took God at His word and believed Him to be who He said He is.
That would be audacious. That would be a life worth living.
