Until… 2012 ends and 2013 begins. Unlike past years i would be very excited to have just made it through another year, and almost dreadfully anticipating yet another year. Not this time! Rather than trying to teach something, i as always, will just share my personal journal of “Counting Down The Days Until… which is what i’m calling my journey through a book called “The Dream Giver.”

Yesterday i left it that, for the most part, not much happened in Familiar that hadn’t happened before.

That was, Until the day Ordinary noticed a small, nagging feeling that something big was missing from his life. i can describe this nagging feeling with great detail. Even today for no reason at all that nagging feeling slipped its way into my thoughts and has my emotions feeling like something is missing. It just so happens to be a unusualy dark and cloudy day here in Florida and that kinda adds to these feelings. The truth is that i know, that i know, nothing is missing from my life. That means that this nagging feeling is a lie. i have learned that there are many well dressed lies trying to impose their lies on me and “i’m not buying it.”

This is the nugget from today’s post. Then he had a surprising idea. Could it be that maybe the Dream Giver gave every Nobody a Dream, but only some embraced their dreams? And even fewer pursued them?

What i get from that is this. i can share, preach, teach whatever i want to call it and there will be some, few, or even all of them, that will not hear it, or do anything with it. “Welcome to God’s world. Only some will embrace their dreams and even fewer will pursue them.”

i must keep on moving forward regardless of feelings. At this point Ordinary was about to step in the lake when something caught his eye. A small boat was moored nearby. Those steps that i must take are not always easy. Ordinary was going to walk through the lake or swim across it to get to the other side. He knew he had to get there and leave the border bullies behind. i went through this same experience last year when i had to separate myself from some that i was doing life with for several years. Today i am still working out what that looks like and on other fronts just beginning the same process. That small moored boat which was waiting for Ordinary looks like this for me. A person who is excited about what they are hearing from God comes in to specifically share with me. Someone comes into the center to watch for a second time the video teaching from last week. Then there are those that come to pray. These are small boats that carry me across the lake. i am encouraged by their effort!

The message Ordinary finds in the boat once he sees it is, “Ordinary, if you’ve found this boat, I know you’ve chosen to please the Dream Giver. Enjoy a dry crossing!”

For those who are engaging in this series with me today’s post is your message in the small boat. “If you are reading this post, i know you’ve chosen the Dream Giver. Enjoy a dry crossing.”

Best Friend shook his head. “So you’re going to become a Dreamer,” he said. “I am a Dreamer!” answered Ordinary.
