Yesterday, I spoke my big dreams aloud, put them out there for the whole world to see – what now?
How do I ensure that I am maintaining momentum?
The key thing for me is to ensure that I don’t push things too hard or too quickly – this is a journey and the destination is not one that can be arrived at in a few days, weeks or even months.
Therefore, I could just sit back and wait for it all to happen but that isn’t how it works. There needs to be activity day to day that ensures I keep moving forward, however small the steps, and don’t stagnate.
I read a book yesterday ‘The Grace Outpouring – blessing others through prayer’ This is the story of God’s work at Ffald-y-Brenin, a retreat centre in rural Wales. It raised a few thoughts for me :
1. The ‘Grace First’ approach. One that Christians and churches claim they have but do we in practice?
2. Praying blessing over people, the local area and the nation. This is something I want to explore further. Is there a tendency to over complicate or to try and force things?
3. Building houses of prayer. This concept really moved something within me and has got me thinking about how it could work practically in my local area. Where would it be? Who would be involved? What impact could it make?
These seeds of ideas and inspiration being sown because I focused some time on reading about what others have done – what worked and what didn’t. How it all began and grew.
These are things I need to think further about, pray over and seek God for. The important thing is doing the seeking.
Friends contacted me about my post yesterday with encouragement and words that I need to spend time weighing and meditating on.
What if I hadn’t written the post? What if I had kept everything internal?
There is a momentum and it all began with speaking aloud the desires of my heart but I can’t stop there.
When you have felt stirred, moved or inspired to act, what have you done to ensure you have maintained momentum?
