I Have A Dream...

God used Pastor Rod to convict me this morning in church that I have not been dreaming BIG enough for this ministry!

God gave me the vision for Worthy of the Prize Sports Ministries 7 years ago and I know that He has a BIG plan for this ministry...I just need to get out of the way!

Pretty much everything that we have accomplished up to this point has been done entirely out of my own, don't get me wrong...He has given me ALL of the ideas and visions and has provided me with some VERY talented helpers...I could not have come up with or done these things on my own.

However, I have not allowed Him to totally take over and take control to carry out these visions...I have not allowed Him to show me what He alone can do!

I have let myself worry about little things like money and manpower...I have forgotten that I serve a Big God!

So, forget my small plans...let's see what God can do!!

It's time to start dreaming BIG!!

Are you with me?

God gave me the vision for Fit Bands and Fit Cards and out of that vision, He gave us the vision to create these very special Baby Gifts that will allow moms to spend precious time praying the Biblical virtues over their child/children in ways that naturally fit into their hectic routine!

The time that I have spent in prayer for my little guys has been very special to me...Lord knows that the hardest job on earth is that of the mother (of which I am the worst) and we need all the prayer we can get!

I have a dream that every mother will have the chance to be given one of these special Baby Gifts, so that she and her child will have the benefit of her precious prayers...

I have an even bigger dream that every "mother in need" will have the chance to be given one of these special Baby Gifts, so that she and her child will have the benefit of her precious prayers....

By "mother in need," I mean...

-mothers who sit in the NICU day after day praying for their child's survival
-mothers who wait day after day for a child to be brought into their family through adoption
-mothers who are going through crisis pregnancies
-mothers in abusive relationships
-mothers with cancer and other terminal illnesses
-mothers who are enduring high risk pregnancies
-mothers living in poverty

...the list goes on and on...

I am currently in the process of working with some organizations who are in direct contact with these "types" of mothers...we are discussing ways to get these special Baby Gifts to these mothers.

It is my dream that we will be able to donate the Baby Gifts to these organizations, so that they can turn-around and give them to the mothers who come to them in need.

What I need you to do is PRAY PRAY PRAY!!

Pray for God to move in a BIG way...bigger than we could ever imagine!

Pray that finances and money and manpower will not be an issue because at this point, there is no way we can afford to donate these Baby Gifts...I have a huge debt hanging over my head just to pay them off!

One obvious way you could help would be to buy one of these special Baby Gifts and give it to a mother in your life that you know could use it...

But more importantly, I need you to PRAY!

PRAY for our BIG God to do something BIG!

We have a few ideas of our own in the works about how we can accomplish this mission, together with God (not that He needs us, but how good He is to allow us the privilege to be used by Him).

I will fill you in on our ideas when the time is right...but for now, PRAY and let's see what God can do!

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Pin It!

What an awesome post about an awesome dream! :) We are one of those living on a shoestring budget families who have to keep a revolving bill file so everyone gets paid in turn though frequently not on time. I share that because I want you to understand that thousands of dollars for international mission trips are not readily available and yet God has taken our teen son, who is called to missions, to Guatemala, Brazil (twice), the Philippines (twice) and China (twice) in the last few years as well as several trips within the USA. We have learned, in spite of our doubts and fears, that He is a BIG God who pays for what He ordains! Excited to watch what He does in and through your family and your ministry!
