In the midst of intense preparation for an interstate relocation (PA TO SC), God has paved the way for me to attend the 2016 International Christian Retail Show—June 26-29th. It was months ago when my husband, Paul, and I prayerfully accepted the Deep River Publishing invitation to represent Faith Feedings…12 principles to nourish your child’s spiritual development at the annual ICRS convention. This gathering of book buyers and sellers will be held in the city of the Great American Ballpark—Cincinnati, Ohio. What a perfect place for my Great American Dream!
The Ask Me About My Dream for Faith Feedings sticker will be part of my daily wardrobe as I seek to enlighten “the world” to the need for faith in our next generation. What is my dream for Faith Feedings, you ask? My dream is that Faith Feedings will infiltrate Urban America across our land. It is not a pie in the sky dream. This dream is founded in the Lord. It is God’s dream to change the faith landscape of our Nation as well.
For many years, I have been praying Psalm 20 for Graduates. I have a long list of precious names written in the margin of my Bible. It so beautifully expresses our “dream” for those who are venturing into their future. Verse 20 speaks to this dream of mine. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. I understand it this way: God gives me the desire of my heart and then he gives me the desire of my heart. He makes my plans succeed when my desires are founded and grounded in Him. Immediately, my mind jumps to John 15:7. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given you. When I abide in Christ and His Word lives in me I ask according to His will. This is a spiritual formula for dreams that come true!
I entreat you to share my dream for a movement of faith in our inner cities through Faith Feedings. Please pray that God would connect me with a faith partner to share OUR Dream. Also, pray for this book to be embraced at the ICRS as a movement of God. I truly believe that it is and will be…for his name’s sake. The Faith Feedings theme that I am highlighting is Bring God into the Moment. May it be so in all of our Great American communities! All I do is Dream, Dream, Dream!
Let justice flow like a river and righteousness like a never-failing stream. Amos 5:24
Watch for Dream Updates. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, make it your way of living to BRING GOD INTO THE MOMENT.
