Living A Dream

Today, I am living a dream.
Years ago, I heard God say to myself and other worshippers, that someday....................... our voice of worship would be heard in the nations.
Now when I heard God say this to me, I thought, like Mary, "How can this be?"
In my natural minds eye, it seemed almost outrageous! And yet, deep inside my heart, I knew that voice that I heard was from God.
So, in faith, I proclaimed it to the worship community that I had the priviledge of giving leadership to. I remember saying, "I don't know how He is going to do this, or when, but I know that some day it will happen"
Well, today, I am living that promise. I had forgotten it, until last week, when He reminded me of this promise.
It made me stop and take a deep breath and remember. At that moment, I was humbled and in awe of His handiwork.
Its good to remember and muse on the promises that God has made to you.

You see, He never forgets. We forget, but He never forgets. He is a kind God, he is a kind father that always keeps His promises.

I am speechless at how He can turn a simple word into exhistence, but He can.

In the past 2 years I have come to understand in a greater way that He loves to hear our dreams and requests. He loves it when we ask for something so outrageous, that.................... only He could do it!
Today, I am in Holland. I am driving on the streets of Europe, immersed in it's beautiful culture.
I spent the whole day rehearsing for the opening of the IMAGINE tour. A worship tour, of hope and proclamation to the body of Christ in Europe.
Since I arrived, I have hardly slept because my spirit is filled with anticipation. I am living a dream......................................... that He first planted in my heart.
A dream that only He could fulfill....
