The Dream Giver

Before I read this book, I had called this whole project The Big Dream.  Then a few months after I started the project, I read the book and realized the synchronicity of it all.  The book by Bruce Wilkinson is called The Dream Giver: Following Your God-Given Destiny.

Bruce wrote the book Prayer of Jabez and I had just finished his other book Beyond Jabez to learn about the Dream Giver book.  Here is a brief audio that talks about how I came to this book.

Lessons Learned

God is the Dream Giver who gives us our Big Dreams. He plants these big dreams in our hearts.  “You were made to be someone special with a Big Dream beating brightly in your heart.  The whole world is waiting for you to begin your journey.  Once you decide to pursue your big dream, you’ll be amazed at how much your life changes.”  A God-given dream brings you together with what God wants to do in this world through YOU.

The three insights into every God-given Big Dream:

  1. A Big Dream seems overwhelming at first
  2. Ultimately a Big Dream is aimed at meeting a Big Need in the world
  3. It’s never to late to start a Big Dream

You’ll come along those people and things that support you – your Dream Champions.  Other times you’ll have to Face the Giants who are opposed to your dream and go into a wasteland, which is a test of commitment and preparation for your dreams.  The bigger the dream, the longer it takes to prepare for the dream.

Lessons Applied

Let the Dream Giver plant your Big Dream in your heart and go for IT!
