The knock on the door startled me and immediately I started grumbling. It would be nice if, just once, the delivery man could be satisfied with a gentle tap instead of a rushed pounding guaranteed to wake up a napping child. But as I saw the big box sitting outside my door, my irritation dissolved and excitement took its place.
I do love finding a box from DaySpring on my front porch!
Lugging it into my dining room, I tried to remember what was packed inside of this box. The first thing I saw when I opened it was Holley Gerth’s new book, You’re Already Amazing. Ohhhh, I breathed. It looked lovely. My thoughts quickly turned, though, and I didn’t stop myself from wondering, “Am I? Really? And does it really matter, anyway?”
Next I pulled out a beautiful teal tote bag. Teal is one of my favorite colors, so it’s no surprise that I loved the bag. But I was surprised when my eyes filled with tears after reading the message on its side.
Make that difference.
Take that step.
Follow that dream!
Just like that, my cynical questions were answered. Dreams are why it matters that I am amazing.
God knows that we will never follow our dreams if we don’t believe that we can reach them. Those dreams – dreams that He gave us – seem too far, too big, too amazing for little ol’ us. But they’re not. You’re amazing. I’m amazing. And God has amazing dream-catching plans for us.
The theme of Holley’s book is echoed in the messages of the Loved by God line. “Dare to make that difference,” “perfectly loved,” “God made just one wonderful you,” “loved by God” – all of these words are true. And that truth is a little bit like dream fuel. It matters if we believe we’re amazing, because if we believe we’re amazing, we’ll follow our dreams. And it matters if we follow our God-given dreams.
We want you to remember how amazing you are. We want you to follow your dreams. So we’re giving away five (5) Loved by God sets that include a Perfectly Loved mug, a Perfectly Loved journal, a Loved sticky note set and a Dare to Make that Difference tote.
