Psalms 27:4

"ONE THING I have desired of the Lord,
that will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord."

It is our dreams that define our lives. It is our dreams that define the way we spend our time. Dream God's dreams for your life, and God's dreams will cause you to seek Him above all else, prior to all else, and at the risk of all else.

Wow, Bethany -- I needed to hear that. Thank you for sharing this. By the way, which book did you get it from?

And that is an absolutely gorgeous photo!

Blessings!

If my dreams indeed define my life, and my dreams are to be like Jesus, why do I so often fail?

My dreams don't get me anywhere, without Christ.

That's a really great quote as well! I just got two of her books last week. Authentic Beauty and Set Apart Femininity. I'm really excited to start reading them soon!
