Change, challenges or transitions in life, is a great time to pause, pray and invite God to reveal His dream for your life. Every January I set aside time to getaway for intentional time with God to assess my life, roles and for A Time To Dream. Most years I invite a few women to join me for a weekend at a retreat home, but I’ve also enjoyed a personal get away. Armed with my Bible, my 3 ring notebook, page protectors, magazines, scrap book materials, markers, photos, or anything that inspires me, I rest, reflect, read the Word, and listen for God to speak to my heart. Each year I invite the Holy Spirit to inspire me with a theme word for the coming year and He always does.
Then I spent time creating a few pages for the new year in my dream book. A dream book is personal and may include words, pictures, places, Scriptures, or items that encourage you or communicate the desires of your heart. I look at it often and sometimes include my dream book as part of my daily devotional time.
Unleash your creativity and give yourself permission to dream or invite a friend to join you for time away to dream. Or…contact me and come with me for my weekend, A Time to Dream Retreat.
