A Little Toby Mac Quote

I have been thinking about this Toby Mac lyric off and on all week:

I got a handful of dreams and a heart full of God.

That really stood out to me. I need to identify my dreams. Sometimes that seems so obscure, so vague. I want my family to serve the Lord cheerfully and passionately. Uh.....I....ummmm..... I want to uhhhhh........bring refreshing and encouragement to people.....uhhhhhh.....mostly women.....and, umm, maybe teenagers.

Are you following me here? I don't really have my handful of dreams! And, do I have my heart full of God?

Oh, boy.

I'd like to think so, but I have a heart full of busy some days (more than I should). A heart full of pride on some days. A heart full of fear every once in awhile, and a heart full of crankiness once a month. God? Are you in there anywhere?

So, before I work on the dreams, I'm going to work on my intimacy with the Lord. I'm winding down my final days at work and plan to really spend some good, uninterrupted time seeking Him while the kids are at school. And, when that happens, then I believe the dreams will come.

Like I've said before, He's cool like that.

I like this post! Indeed an interesting point to consider! Having a heart full of God rather than a heart full of a lot of other things is something I've been finding more and more difficult!

Or, not more and more difficult so much as the fact that I am realizing and understanding more and more, and THAT really makes me look at my progress - where I've been and where I need to be.
