Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
God wants us to dream big!! With His Spirit to guide us in everyday life, we can dream big according to His purpose for our life. Do you have or did you have a big dream come to pass that the Lord directed?
I know my biggest dream that God directed was with the "On a Mission Magazine". As its publisher, the Lord helped me carry this publication to heights I never "dreamed" of reaching. "On a Mission Magazine" signed on with a national distribution company that carried it to several store outlets in all of Ohio such as: Kroger, Target, Meijer, Giant Eagle, CVS Pharmarcies, and Walgreens. Unfortunately, it hit the shelves right at the time of Coronavirus. Since sales were low, it was discontinued after seven issues. Then, it was distributed by direct mail. It published a total of five years.
"On a Mission Magazine" was directed by prayer from all its contributors and in my thought was my greatest purpose for the Lord. It couldn't have been done without God's direction.
Before this Blog, Lynn Berna was also on the journey with the print publication as well. Now the Lord has us both on the Blog circuit and expanding horizons as we go along.
I am thankful for what I learned by this experience and desire to keep living for God's purpose in the forefront of my life.
