Dream Big

Posted: June 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

I always love hearing the dreams and desires of our guests. I often ask people what their plans are and what they want to do with their future. For most people who are on the street or living in addictions today is the only day they are planning for. It is hard to get some people to dream again, or for some to dream for the first time.

Over the past couple of years it has been a great blessing to see some friends start working on their dreams. 1 wanting to have a career in tattooing, and another in wrestling. I have encouraged both many times to follow after these dreams they have had all their lives.

The other day I got a strange phone call from a recent resident of the shelter. He had a message for another guest that he would like to read the book that he has written, and that maybe in the future he can publish it.

It was only a few min before the “author” came into my office. I gave him the message, but he said he currently doesn’t have a copy, that he needs to write it again. He then started telling me how he wants to be a Christian rapper, he informed me he would have to change some of his lyrics, but wants to tell people about Jesus.

See he recently became a Christian and is excited. He told me the title in his song would need to be changed, and then started rapping the song for me, and when a swear word came up he apologized lol.

I love that people can just be real! Some might be upset about his swearing in that instance, but I just loved the genuine attitude he was in.

He has moved into our Step Up program, is working and taking GED, but wants to make a living at his music.

I love hearing people’s plans, I exceptionally love being able to encourage people to go for their dreams!

The biggest dream we think of is nothing compared to the plans Jesus has for our lives.
