For a long time while dream chasing I viewed my family in the wrong light. I am ashamed to admit that I viewed my family as a burden and a road block to my dream. I was going about chasing my dream all wrong pushing aside my family and God to get my dream faster. There was not anything malicious and frankly I was still spending a lot of time with them. The problem was in my heart. My heart toward my family was a little off. Thank the Lord that I pressed into God and in my quiet time He spoke to my heart. You see it is the little things that show us if we are putting our family in proper order. If our priorities are not right we actually end up with a cheap knock off to what dream chasing is all about.
Nothing could be more rewarding than chasing a dream with your family. Don’t leave them behind, but embrace them as co-dreamers. Your dream shouldn’t after all be your dream, rather your family should be referring to it as our dream. You need buy in and staying power with the family or you will be fighting up-stream against them instead of being united going in a common direction.
This is so impactful and important to me that I wrote a book on the subject. I am getting input and direction from my loving wife instead of putting it all on my shoulders. As a dream chaser you and I will be tempted to chase improperly and it can lead to loss of family, faith, and health. The imitation that we are promised in our minds is never there instead it could end up being a bunch of wreckage. It is important to chase our dreams properly so coming soon is my new eBook called, Dreams That Last.
In the book I will discuss proper dream chasing and what God has to say about it. This book will highlight the proper foundational elements to chasing dreams and keeping God in his rightful place as well as your family.
How do you include your family in your dream chasing?
