I am reading the book What Happens When Women Walk in Faith by Lysa TerKeurst. It is targeted toward any Christian woman who has a dream. I have had plenty, some of which have even become a reality. There is a line that could keep me grounded, if I remember it:
My friend, I pray that along this journey of walking with God toward your dream, your greatest joy will be seeing and experiencing God, for that is the real joy of this entire adventure.
That is the reality check for me. It isn't about planning something cool and exciting, it is about getting to see God at work in my life, and the lives of those I hope to impact.
