SHARE THE DREAM (3)
'I'm out.' These are the fateful words you'll be hearing if you haven't sold your dream well to others. People need to actually see what it is you're on about, or at least some semblance of that reality before they'll be putting their metaphorical money where their mouth is.
The thing about dreams is that they're not so great if that's all they ever are. Whether it's transforming a community, or creating a new team, it's the impact of your dream that matters. Think about the person you're sharing your dream with, and look at things from their point of view. Are they going to improve themselves? Will they have the rewarding feeling of a job well done? Do they feel valued? Do they like being around you? All these questions matter to people, and if people feel like they don't matter to you, they'll soon be off. If you're already a living breathing example of what you're trying to sell, then a large part of the battle's won. Part of them choosing whether or not to climb aboard will be working out whether you're a person of integrity and whether you actually do what you say on your tin.
Remember that Jesus Christ was the expert in all of these matters, so keep focusing on Him. When it's all clicked in to place, you might never get a gold star but you will have that sense of peace and joy that only comes through God's stamp of approval.
Ask God about your dreams. Perhaps He's calling you to step out in faith and believe Him for His power.
