Seeing Through New Eyes

There is a time for everything, 

   and a season for every activity under heaven

Ecclesiastes 3:1



Today I want to ask you how is your baby? What baby, you ask? The one that is being formed in you now. I am not talking about a human baby...unless of course you are pregnant now. Then by all means you need to put those feet up and nurture the beauty within, resting in the wonderful season, delighting with the precious soul you are presently birthing. 

I am actually speaking figuratively about that dream within that wants to be birthed. 

Perhaps a shelved dream, derailed goal, thwarted plan or even the need for renewed commitment to the same resolution. Is it the book that needs to be written, a specific career path, a life role that needs more active participation from you? It could be a specific regimen, lifestyle change or volunteer opportunity you know is God's call. I could go on and on. But really, you know already what is beneath the surface which needs to bear fruit, is rooted, sprouting or in some kind of growth process. 

Now take a look at that cute little baby picture. I find that an irresistible baby, right there. I love babies and children. They really bring me great pleasure, as all is new in them, 
and through their eyes we see some things new again as well! 

Do you have an old dream that needs to be taken down from the shelf, dusted off and looked at with fresh new eyes and inspiration today? 

Why not see it with fresh, new eyes and see if it is time for that baby to be born.

You don't want to keep that cutie hidden on a shelf forever do you? 
What is your secret or temporarily shelved dream?

What is the God seed planted that longs to burst right out of your heart


Stop beating yourself up if you have failed or derailed
and start visualizing the irresistible outcome of that little seed dream
be it small or great!


He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true. 
Revelation 21:5

  1. Thanks for reminding me that my "baby" dream(s), as I have a few, are important. It's so easy to get distracted by others, who don't believe in my hopes and dreams becoming a reality. I am, by nature a dreamer, maybe overly so, but those dreams are what push us to accomplish so much for God!

    In His Lo♥e, Ann
