Editor’s Vlog & Inspiration: Dream Deeper, Your Purpose and Love Can Change Lives

Dream deeper than how the world tells us to dream – your purpose could make someone’s day brighter just by you showing that you see them and care!✌❤️

Above is a snippet of my story that I shared on Periscope (join me @dreamfleur) of how my life has changed once I found true love. I spent the past few months at Christ for the Nations (I highly recommend that place for anyone who has a dream of changing the world and wants to connect with God in a deeper way to get more direction). One of the biggest lessons is that sometimes God wants us to step out of our comfort zone to reach out to the people around us that we don’t know, to show them love and maybe pray for them if we feel led to.

Our dreams can have a platform that reaches so many people but at times God wants us to get out of our comfort zone to talk to one person and see how they’re doing, and to share His love with them – it could make all the difference in their world!

Dream BIG and dare to dream deeper, seeing people like God sees them, with live, reaching out to the lonely and the overlooked. It fills you up with so much joy to know you made a difference on someone’s life and in turn you change the world!

Smile to brighten someone's day! Dream a dream bigger than you, like Dr. King did, and together we can light up the word! God put big dreams in your heart beyond what the world calls success because His biggest Dream is to see all of His kids come back to Him so we all can play and party together some day! ✌️ Sometimes I think certain people and situations are in our lives to show us how He can empower us to love radically like Jesus did – the kind of love that don't make sense to most – that's unconditional, not condemning even if we feel hurt (remember our real enemy is invisible and loves to distract us with silly offenses) and is not about our feelings or self interests…the kind of love that the world will scratch it's head at like huh??

Below is one of the devotions I wrote for CFNI on this topic of being love to people to change the world:

“…Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.” Mark 9:36

Our culture often looks to crowds and numbers as a measure of influence, especially in our social media-driven world. Even in ministry we could get distracted by being overly focused on status and boosting our numbers.

Jesus did teach crowds and feed multitudes but He also did significant ministry work on the personal level. There was the moment He looked tenderly into the face of the woman at the well and several times when He stopped to heal determined individuals who were in need.

Loving others is our call, but how often do we leave our comfort zones and the church building to love people one-on-one? Are we too distracted striving to be great to notice individuals God has placed in our path for a greater purpose? When we cultivate relationships with others and genuinely show compassion they’ll tangibly experience God’s love.

Let’s ask God to give us eyes to see those who feel invisible and forgotten, the downcast and weary. We can heal the broken-hearted and set captives free through love and service – if we dare to get uncomfortable and personal. -Julene Fleurmond #cfnidevotionals #relationships Find more inspiration and nourishment for your spirit on my blog http://dreamfleur.com.

Let us learn to trust the heart of Love from which freedom flows and everything begins…

lovesetsyoufreetoplaydreamfleurmed

We began our journey on this Earth with the freedom to discover, to explore with wide-eyed wonder, we dreamed, we played naturally – until we lost our trust and fear drew us away from our real life reverie and the freedom that is ours…

What would happened if we embraced the childlike freedom to dream and play again?
I’ve been learning the freedom of having childlike faith and joy since interning at the children’s ministry at my church and seeing how full of joy and wonder the kids are…

Permission to Play Flourish Conference

Flourish 2015 Conference Recap from Covenant Church on Vimeo.

Recently at my church the theme of the women’s ministry conference was “Permission to Play” and when I heard it announced it was like a nudge of confirmation. God has been instilling the lesson of trusting Him in me for the past few years – since He rocked my world in a vivid encounter in 2009 giving me visions of God’s deep love for us…

In one of the visions I saw little kids giggling and playing dress up, and it was as if He was showing me how joyous and free like kids we were meant to be. In another I was in a vast forest that reminded me of the Garden and I was a little girl dancing in a pure white dress asking my Daddy question after question, trying to make sense of life and why things are the way they are.




His response was a deep, extravagant impartation of His love, a glimpse of His passionate plan from the Beginning to end, for us His children, to discover His love and dwell with Him forever and words I will never forget: “Do you trust Me?”

Trust is so important in the journey of purpose and living out the dreams we were made for! Jesus Himself says that it’s like a child that we enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Let’s just rest, play, embrace joy and trust Him, not leaning on our own understanding – He’s got you covered!

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3-4

These songs from Bethel Music have spoken to me recently, I they do you too, as you worship, dance and stare in wonder at our King…
