As a two and three-year old I used to gather all my stuffed animals together and stand up on box and begin to “preach” to them. My Mom called me her “little preacher boy.” As a child God put within my imagination the dream of being a preacher.

As a teenager I began to pursue my divine-daring dream to one day being a preacher. I recognized God’s call upon my life. While my friends in high school questioned the direction for their lives, I had a path laid out in front of me to attend Evangel College and then enter full-time ministry.

Unfortunately I found a detour in the road I had chosen. Instead of completing college in 4 years and seeing my dream fulfilled, God entered me into the “school of hard knocks.” While I was in my first year of college at Evangel, the Lord told me that His plan would be fulfilled “IN HIS TIME.” God set my schedule. Little did I realize then that it would be another 8½ years before the dream God had put in my heart as a child and developed as a teenager would finally become a reality.

Chasing or running after a divine-daring dream is a PROCESS, pursuing your God-given dream TAKES TIME. Wouldn’t it be great if the Lord gave us His dream for our lives, and we woke up in the morning and found that all our dreams had came true? Unfortunately that isn’t reality; that’s fantasy! When God gives us a dream it takes time.
