Pursue your passions

In my life I have seen people pursue dreams and goals and it has resulted in much fruit.  I have also seen people just talk about their dreams and goals and they have eventually fallen to the wayside.  This reminds me of the following scripture:

Mark 4:15

New King James Version (NKJV)

15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.

This is what happens to your seeds by the wayside.  Satan snatches them up.  This happens to many of us when it comes to the dreams God has placed in our hearts.  Well, I'm here to tell you that this does not have to be so.  Even in the midst of your busy life you can pursue your dreams little by little each day.  Matter-a-fact, God wants you to do this.  When God drops something in your heart concerning anything, it's important to take steps to pursue it immediately.  I have just had a revelation about this recently.  Don't wait until you have all the details ironed out. Don't wait until you have figured out how it's going to work.  Don't stop to think about whether you have time to do it.  Make a move on it and see how God moves.  Kind of like a checkerboard.  You make a move then see what move God makes. But you and God are on the same team, not competing agaist each other.  One tiny step of faith can yield something major in your life.  Tune in to the things you're passionate about and spend a little time on that everyday.  There are 3 things that I'm really passionate about right now in my life:
1.  Supporting other parents - I'm in the process of starting a Parent Support Group at my daughters school.  The school has approved it, I'm just trying to iron out the details.  My support group is called "Enriching America's Homes"
2.  Making my own home a place of teaching, enrichment and discipleship for my children
3.  Making my home a place of hospitality for those who need it.

What are your 3 things, or 2 things, or 1 thing??  I believe that God will move on these things immediately in your life if you move on these things.  Matter-a-fact, I believe this so much that I'm going to ask you to send an e-mail to the following e-mail and tell me what is stirring in  your heart right now.  I want to pray for you and anticipate God's movement in your life.  Please let me join with you in this.  The e-mail is below:
I'm praying this message falls in the hands of some people who are really ready to believe God for some things.  I do hope you will let me pray for you.
