The room was quiet. Shuffling in seats. A nervous cough. More silence.
Tentatively, I said, “I want to write.”
There. It was out there. I’ve dreamed it for a few years. I’ve never said it out loud. And now I’ve said it to the church leadership. I held my breath.
The response was amazing. The validation of the dream. The encouragement. The loving and prayerful support.
The next day, I’m walking in the park with a friend. Out of the blue she turns to me and says, “So when are you going to start writing for others?”
I stopped. “How did you know?”
It’s a God-thing. Validation. Encouragement.
"It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else."

I took the chance. And God validated the dream.
I want to be in the business of validating dreams, not of hampering them. How about you?
