104 || How Your Dreams Draw You Closer to God || Merritt Onsa

104 - MOPS TALK - IG.png

I’m wrapping up the podcast for 2018 this week. In this last episode of the year I’m trying something a little different. In November, I was invited to speak to a local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group in Golden, Colorado. The MOPS theme this year is Find Your Fire – an excellent fit for the conversations we’re having here on The Devoted Dreamers Podcast. So, I recorded that talk, and I’m sharing it with you this week in lieu of an interview. I’ll be back on January 9, 2019, with all new interviews for Season Five. May you have a blessed Christmas celebrating the birth of our Savior

IF YOU HAVE EVER DISCOUNTED YOUR DREAM, THIS WAS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.

In this episode, you’ll learn some of my real-life tips about how to find time for your dream, even as a busy mom/entrepreneur/wife, etc. You will be inspired to believe in the value of your dream not only for the dream itself but also for the ways it will draw you closer to the Father as you take risks, leave your comfort zone and do scary things to pursue it.

Hear why you’ll face opposition, what that looks like for other dreamers (including the most accomplished women you know) and how you can fight back in the face of these challenges. We also talk about letting go of the mom-guilt and, instead, discovering the benefits to your kids as you take time to pursue the dream God has placed on your heart.

SCRIPTURE:

“…and behold, a voice from heaven said, 
‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’”

~ Matthew 3:17 (ESV)

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.

~ Zephaniah 3:17 (NKJV)
 

Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
~ Romans 5:3-5 (ESV)

 

“…we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!”
~ Romans 5:5 (MSG)
