I Have A Dream

I Have A Dream

By Deborah White Dove

Prayer is what happens when our thoughts are focused Heavenward. A vision is a prayer written down, originating in God's heart.  Our prayers become the script of our future life stories.

Colossians 3:1-2 – Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand.

Hebrews 11:1 – Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

If we want to move from worrier to warrior, it begins with dreaming about what you want. It must be written down.

"A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and unknown." Denis Waitley

And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2)

You might begin with a prayer, as I did, not long ago…

How would Jesus live through my life today? How would He handle ____ and what would He say about ___? What would He eat? How would He earn a living, in and through me?

Father, I submit my whole being to You and I ask You to live through me. Spirit of Truth and Love, fill me so there is nothing left of my ego, only You.

"Cancel your plans and exchange them for Mine. For I know the plans I have for you and they are Good. I have plans to prosper you."

Yes, please, do as You have said, dear Papa. Today, I release the dam in Your River that I built with my worries and doubts and fears. I say, "Let the River flow!" I release myself to sing and dance again. Please cause Your Goodness and Kindness to manifest today in greater measure than ever before.

"Suffer the little children to come unto Me, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

How would Jesus live through me today? As a child – a dearly loved child of God. He would not be concerned about anything except knowing His Father in the NOW.

"Trust Me, you can do anything. All things are possible."

Direct me, step-by-step.

"From the womb to the cradle, a baby has every need given to him, gladly and cheerfully. So I wish to wrap you up and clothe you like a princess. Don't wrestle with the current reality, dear heart. What you see has not yet become what it will be. Choose to see it as it will be. What do you want, my friend?"

I want… 

And so the vision came forth and I wrote it down. And today I remember what came forth and I choose to meditate on what God led me to see instead of my current reality. I feel His pleasure.

"A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and unknown." Denis Waitley

I believe our imagination is not too big for God, and if we can dare to imagine a better future for ourselves and for our world, then our God is big enough to make it happen. He just wants to know what we want!

What are you creating today? Do you have a vision of the world you'd like to live in? Have you written it down? I'd love to hear from you 🙂

Hi, I'm Deborah White Dove. Yes, it's my pen name, and it was given to me by a blind man who shyly whispered it to me in a Divine encounter. Yes, it's my real picture… just an ordinary selfie in my backyard. 

I live with my family in the mountains, surrounded by ancient forests, pure streams, and mighty rivers. I work at a local grocery store to earn my living. My earthly needs are simple as I try to let my inner child lead me, instead of me trying to be what the world says I should be and do.

My kingdom of God career is a Heart Scribe. I love to write from God's heart and have been recording His living Word for the past three decades. It's brought me so much beauty, joy, peace, and happiness! 

I love to inspire trauma survivors to write their life stories, unearthing the treasures of their past and sowing them into the future. We dip our pens in blood and write the pain away… as God has shown me how to do, in the company of supportive friends and family. We are writing ourselves into a better world and it's the most exciting place to be!

"Where the enemy has come relentlessly against the dreams of God's people, that have been standing and contending for their promised dream, surrendered to the timing of God and free of striving, the Lord is bringing an upgrade to the dream. Increase and upgrade is being released upon dreams especially to those who have literally felt like they have been going through the worst possible time in their life in relation to their dreams. Not only is the Lord going to deliver His people up and out as we trust, He is going to deliver some amazing breakthrough, increase, blessing and upgrade. The stones the enemy has been throwing at you and the dream the Lord has given you to silence you and knock you down, those very stones you will pick up and hurl back at the enemy and do great damage to his Kingdom through the outworking of you walking out your dream breakthrough." — Lana Vawser
