Looking around the blog posts today, I found one that stuck out to me immediately. “Dream Maker vs. Dream Breaker” was the title and it was obvious to me which one I wanted to be.
The following are excerpts from that post.
“In your ministry or business, you can be one of two things: a dream maker or a dream breaker. A dream breaker is the type of leader who is just happy with where they and their team are at, settles for just making sure things get done in there ministry, doesn’t really welcome too many ideas from others because they are afraid of change, and are just kind of satisfied with their ministry.”
“A dream maker is someone who challenges their team to dream big and bring those dreams to the table, who trusts their team, who always wants to move forward, who isn’t ever happy with where they are at as a ministry, who is open to change, who truly trusts that with God anything is possible, and who cares more about their team then themselves.”
“…What happens if we go after a dream and it fails? We’re right back where we started? What happens if it succeeds? We could possibly take our ministry to a level we had never imagined it would be!”
In addition, the best news is that the question shouldn’t be “Are you a dream maker or breaker?” but really, “What do you have to lose by being a dream maker?” Just like it says, “We’re right back where we started.” Is that the worst?
Being back at square 1 is discouraging sure, I know. I’ve been back at the first square plenty of times. Thank You Lord, for Your Grace to love me still and help me to carry on.
Not only is starting at the beginning OK, but we can’t forget just Who is on our side. With Him, “soaring on wings like eagles” is certain.
