How to Begin Dreaming

In this episode we talk about how to begin dreaming about the things God is calling us to, which is very different than the cheesy instagram notion. We also share about dreams being deep desires that God places in our hearts to build up the kingdom and how to invite the Holy Spirit to restore the broken place so that new life can come forth.

Extra scriptures for this episode:

“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions” – Joel 2:28 

“The LORD answered me: “Write down this vision and clearly inscribe it on tablets, so that a herald may run with it. 3 For the vision awaits an appointed time; it testifies of the end, and will not lie. Though it lingers, wait for it, since it will surely come and not delay. – Habakkuk 2:3

  1. Loved this episode!

  2. Thank you for this podcast! First time listener, and it seemed to be just what I needed to begin dreaming at this time of my life. I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for over 10 years and my youngest has just started kindergarten. That leaves me with more time during the day to explore what God has in store for me! You gave me so much to think about, and I thank you for that! You’re all so precious!

    • So glad you enjoyed it Angie! Thank you for sharing with us.
