3 Spiritual Reasons to Go after Your Childhood Dreams

3 Spiritual Reasons to Go after Your Childhood Dreams

In every one of your childhood delights, there was God, teaching you about himself. And the more we can reach into this deep well of delight, the more we can give to others. Not only do our childhood hobbies and dreams bring us joy, they often involve BIG visions of how we can help others, too. Like the Japanese principle of ikigai, your childhood dreams can be the key to not just what you love, what you are good at, and what you can be paid for–but what the world needs, too.

So, reignite those dreams! Get out that journal, be brave and record yourself singing, if only for yourself. Buy that Lego set so you can feel what it's like to build again. Start with doing what you love without judgment, and the rest will follow. Your inner child will thank you for it, and so will your future self!

Called to Be Faithful in the Here and Now

Called to Be Faithful in the Here and Now

We don’t know if our moment is one where the enduring faithfulness of God’s people standing athwart the tides of history will push this world back to reality. Or if it is one where we will lose our lives in our quest to be faithful. What we do know is that Christ has called us to this time and this place. As Gandalf said to Frodo, when he wondered why he should have to live in such times, being meant to be here and now “is a very encouraging thought.” So, whatever comes, great victories or the full evaporation of progress, our task is the same: faithfulness, not success.

When We Truly Believe We Are Who God Says We Are, We Find Everlasting Peace

This week, I’ve been discussing the significance and implications of Christians’ status as the “children of God.” We have noted that we are loved passionately and unconditionally by our Father and thus called and privileged to love our fellow Christians and those outside the faith as our Father loves us.
