Inspired...Even In My Sleep

My cute T-Shirt pillow.  :o)

I’m big on encouragement, inspiration and motivation. And when I don’t have the right words to say, I find that God’s Word is always best. Why, you ask. Because it’s true. It will never fall to the ground void – meaning it will always accomplish what it says it will. It’s RIGHT. It’s GOOD. It endures forever and ever.

I’m a dreamer and I’m convinced that if I can conceive it in my mind and believe it in my heart, then my dream will manifest at the proper time. Sometimes all a dreamer needs is a little push…that can come from you. Sometimes the dreamer needs only 1 person to believe in their dream…that’s you. Sometimes all they need is 1 encourager, 1 motivator, just one…that’s you. Become a dream-builder. Believe in your dreams and others’ dreams.

Encouragement is simply a part of who I am. It’s almost like an additional limb attached to my body. I use it to stand on and I use it to reach out with.

I made this sweet little T-Shirt pillow full of dream-inspiring thoughts. Its purpose is to inspire me even as I sleep and rest my mind through the night. And what better way to end the day than to pray a sweet little prayer to the Dream-Giver, that’s God. I chose the prayer that I learned as a little girl: “Now I lay me down to sleep…”

I have proof that your dreams can be fulfilled... => "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).  There's your proof and He has strengthened me to walk out my dreams.  Now, lets make that scripture more personal.  State your name in the place of "I" and make your dreams come alive.

I believe in my dreams and I believe in yours, too.
Be encouraged and follow your dreams.

Dream on...dreamer!
