God Has a Big Dream for Your Life: Inspiration from the Story of One of My Favorite Dreamers Joseph (Editor’s Journal)

josephspeakingcollage4

Sometimes it’s what you’re most afraid of that’s part of your purpose – for me that was speaking! These are the confessions of a former major introvert… I used to shake in my boots literally on-stage and even when I had to talk in class as a kid my heart would beat loudly… Growing up shy I hardly talked as a little girl and people would ask my mom if I was mute. When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I squeaked Oprah – I wanted to speak and use my voice to inspire others but didn’t know how i was gonna cause I was too scared.

Through practice and perseverance I got through that fear and surprisingly now speaking is my FAVORITE thing to do! I find myself on stages and in classrooms (where I’d probably pass out or drown in a puddle of my own sweat years ago) speaking my story and singing encouraging songs to inspire other kids who were like me to overcome their fears and live their big dreams…

Recently I got to speak with a group of teen girls in Dallas (some of them pictured here) about the journey of dreams – how God has a big dream for each of our lives and how even when things get tough everything works together for good for those who live on Purpose. We talked about the story of Joseph the Dreamer in the Bible who is my fave (go watch the Emmy-award winning movie based it, it’s awesome and Joseph ain’t too hard on the eyes;) and how even when he was in a pit and the prison he trusted God and served others with his gifts until his big dream came true. God used all of those trials to develop him into a true, powerful leader who would go on to save his people – a foreshadowing of another great leader to come…

Ever since I was younger God told me my story was like Joseph’s and the word “dream” was always in my heart. Everything about my businesses and life had the word dream included somehow since I was a kid (as did gifts my friends gave me pictured here). Like Joseph I overcame years of confusing circumstances and now I’m living out the very dreams I had written down years before – speaking, singing, serving others’ dreams and creating a multimedia company that inspires youth to live on purpose. With Love everything is possible – so go follow your dreams and dare to share your story – someone needs to hear you speak about how you overcame too. I truly believe your story can set someone free and I believe in you!

Love and peace ✌️ Julene

Above: Inspiring youngin’s LEGO Movie-style… One of my favorite things to do is create and speak at experiences and workshops merging music, drama and interaction for kids and youth to inspire them to live their dreams boldly in purpose.

P.S. Have a group of kids or teens who could use some inspiration through speaking, singing and a creative interactive presentation? Feel free to send me a line and let me know how I could help! Together we can inspire the next generation!

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days
And I’ve prayed prayers to heaven from my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God You give and take away
No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

– Tauren Wells from Hills and Valleys

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

“Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19

Inspiration and Music Pick: I’m With You from HeeSun Lee ft. Sam Ock

HeeSun Lee’s song I’m With you will move you deeply like it did me if you’ve ever struggled with anxiety and fear.

In her third album release, HeeSun Lee makes her epic comeback to music with a bombastic wall of sound. “Beauty For Ashes” starts out on full force of precise rap skills, hard-hitting beats & flawless collaborations. With pumping tracks like “All Out”, “Underdog”, and “Losing Faith”, any audience will gravitate to dance and lay back on the hype of the music. The title track lets Heesun and her harmonious vocalists “Alia Akilli” & “Dana Joe” experiment a refreshing direction that appeals to both rap and dance-pop audiences. From bumping to the album’s anthem tracks, she then, unapologetically reveals her emotional lyricism in tear-shedding songs like “I Love You, Daddy” within her ambient and groovy beats. Beauty For Ashes concludes on the passionate theme of hope and finding the light in the darkness. The album is the first of being released independently but its progressive energy and hype will change the game of hip-hop for many years to come.

Editor’s Reflections: Love Is Everything

loveiseverything

“I have found the one my heart loves…” God’s Love is everything. It was a few years ago when I had a life-changing experience that rocked my world. I found myself waking up in the back of an ambulance and then in the hospital after passing out at my house and was scared of what was happening.

After having one anxious thought after the other a calm came over me and I experienced wave after wave of God’s presence and love like I never had before. He soothed my fears away and said through an electric encounter, if you only knew [how much He loved us] and how love on this Earth is just a glimpse of how He intended our love to be. I found His love in a way I never had before and ever since then I want MORE. The whole experience is too WHOA to be captured in a single post but I will be sharing more of it on the Dreaming of Love series at DreaminSoul.com, stay tuned for more…

When you find Love – the kind of love that’s unconditional, passionate and everlasting you’ve found everything you need. Love finds us and brings us to our purpose in life – to be forever united with Him… – Julene Fleurmond, Editor of Dream in Soul Magazine
