A Dream So Big

giveusthenationspost

When you have a God-dream it goes way beyond yourself…

Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession… Psalm 2:8

Even before I was born,
the Lord God chose me
to serve him and to lead back
the people of Israel.
So the Lord has honored me
and made me strong.
Now the Lord says to me,
“It isn’t enough for you
to be merely my servant.
You must do more than lead back
survivors from the tribes of Israel.
I have placed you here as a light
for other nations;
you must take my saving power
to everyone on earth.” Isaiah 49:5-6

The Latest Editor’s Vlog & Diary: Love Yourself, Overcoming Insecurity and Comparison

Baby you should go and love yourself…Have you ever scrolled down your Facebook or Instagram feed or been somewhere and found yourself comparing yourself to other people – maybe feeling like you’re behind in life and in your purpose or don’t measure up to others’ standards? I’ve been there!

Here’s an entry from my Dear Diary Video series at Dreamfleur.com where I’m talking about life topics that we can all relate to – this one is avoiding the trap of comparison, judging others and insecurity…


God Can Do More Than You Can Dream: Editor’s Journal and Inspiration from Ephesians 3:20

ephesians3collage


No matter what your world looks like with Love there is beauty and anything is possible. We have the power to be the change, to fly high, way beyond our dreams – just take a leap and believe

“…[He] will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in…the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights… Live full lives, full in the fullness of God. God can do anything, you know – far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3 MSG

From my design series at dreaminsoul.com – Julene Fleurmond, editor of Dream in Soul Magazine…Keep dreaming!

Check out one of the dreams I’ve been pursuing at my blog, creating inspirational music with a greater purpose…

Above is an animation showing a snippet of lyrics for my song “Arise and Shine (Dare Dreamer)” and a little venturing into stop-motion (I love trying new things) The lyrics in the clip above say:

“Arise and Shine, Dare Dreamer can’t you see you’re full of purpose and possibility! So arise and shine O Sleeper, don’t give up now dare, Dreamer, arise and shine Dear Dreamer come alive!” That’s my message to YOU today and everyday!

A while back I shared how I have been pursuing my dream of inspiring others through music. It’s weird but I’ve been realizing that one of the reasons why I’ve been avoiding doing music is because I’ve been feeling so unconnected with so much of the music in the world and felt like I had to follow the way things have been done. I was like I’m not even as passionate about singing as I am about other things and as much as music artists are, I don’t feel like a “singer,” I’m a speaker/writer/visual artist why do You want me to do this??? Then He told me though multiple ways and people, why can’t you be both, I made you that way…why can’t we merge our passions into something that hasn’t been seen before?

youremadehellopurposeIt came to the point where I couldn’t even listen to music or enjoy it much, like I always felt like something was off for me. Not because other music is bad music but because when God wants you to step out into the unknown to create something new He makes you restless and annoyed until you do it, lol…so don’t avoid your purpose. You won’t feel fully alive until you fully embrace your calling.

Dreamers often get frustrated because what God asks them to do doesn’t make “sense”, as they are made to do something new and get tired of the status quo – usually because they are meant to shake things up to change the world – misfits are lit yo… we weren’t made to be “normal.” We color outside the lines to pioneer a new path that no one has seen…

juleneyounowtwitterscreenPeople like Walt Disney and Oprah Winfrey inspire me (I might have been their wild child) because they paved new paths, defined their own success and innovated unique dreams that did not exist before and didn’t wait for anyone’s validation. That’s my dream – to meld my passions into something new that may not “fit in” but expresses that part of God’s heart I’m created to be. For the longest time I felt pressured to do what others expected me to or to fit a mold so others can like me but that’s no way to live!

I don’t want this to be about me – stars don’t shine alone in the dark sky. My dream is not celebrity but community – to ignite a movement to unite singers and artists who have a heart for creating art with a greater mission and together we support one another, collaborate and change the world. Sound like you? Send me a line!

<3 Why do so many great artists fall and why do so many artists struggle - maybe because we were never made to carry glory alone or to be worshipped but to unite to draw people to the greatest Artist of all...

Alex G on Overcoming Anxiety and Music with James David and Danielle Bennett

Life can get stressful especially in the world we live in and maybe you can relate to Alex G’s story of how she’s learning to overcome anxiety – I definitely could relate to the frustration, feelings and am inspired by her vulnerability…

“I have had bad anxiety since I was 10 years old. For those of you struggling with it, I understand now that it can be really serious and damaging. Be compassionate towards each other. You have no idea how much it can help those with emotional needs!

“This is my story. I hope that it encourages others who struggle with mental disorders to start the process of stepping away from their shame and fear. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!” – Alex G

Be sure to check out Alex’s amazing music – here are some of my favorites: her passionate cover of “I Was Made For Loving You” with James David (DAVIE) (the original is by Tori Kelly and Ed Sheeran) and her original song Lighthouse with spoken word by Danielle Bennett – so beautiful, heart-moving and relevant to what so many people are feeling in the world today. All of these young artists are inspiring ones to follow, be sure to check out their sites below!

Inspiration: I Know from Group 1 Crew and Don’t Rush Your Blessing

“I know that you’re with me, See me ridin – I ain’t worried about nothin…”

I’ve been jammin to the song “I Know” from Group 1 Crew from the album “Power” that is out on July 29. It’s a great reminder that in whatever happens in life we don’t have to worry because God’s got it under control.

I also love this message from Manwell, on how important it is to trust the timing of God and the preparation process He has us going through in order to live out our purpose – embrace the process and don’t rush your blessing. Thanks for the realness and encouragement!
