God wants Us to Focus

Chasing the evening sunset on a country Oklahoma road when I realized that my life was okay. Truly I had a long night ahead of me full of tasks and responsibilities. Also, I had yesterday's list still needing to be done. I still had a pile of dirty clothes that needed washing, a dog that needed his nails trimmed, and much more. But even in all that heaviness I still could see the beauty all around me.

I realized that I have allowed many seasons to pass by feeling like my hopes, dreams, and future goals were dead. I was still alive but my desires seemed dead.

Until a shift happened when I realized that the things we call dead, God calls sleeping.

See, in previous seasons, I called my love-life dead, I called my dream of ministry dead, and I called my dream of buying a new vehicle dead. I called it dead because I had to wait on it, season after season, and it felt like it would never come, but God knew it was only sleeping in that season.

Today, God is challenging us to remember that things we think are dead, are only sleeping. When we think our joy is dead, our hope is dead, our future is dead, and our dreams... God sees a chance to resurrect them! Today, choosing to remember the thing you thought was dead in the last season is actually resurrected in this season.

God is calling us to get up again and remember. To remember the promises, prophecies, and dreams he has placed in our hearts. The thing you've called dead actually is alive now!

If you have felt like your dream of marriage, travel, buying a home, or experiencing more of Jesus has been dead, then today is your day to see it resurrected! Whatever this desire is, today believe that God is resurrecting it. Your dream wasn't dead, it was only sleeping!
