Dream Fulfilled: Dream Chasers
God will put you in a community of dreamers: people who support the dream even if it takes a while for it to happen.
COMMUNITY OF DREAMERS
God wants you to have a beautiful community, and He wishes to help you build it. He is very invested in this thought. His desire is for us to help bear each other’s burdens (Galatians 6:2). He knew we would be better together, and two were better than one (Ecclesiastes 4:9)
Living with intention and purpose will draw people with likeminded lives. The healthier you are, the healthier your community will be because you will have healthy boundaries and only allow those behaving nicely to be around you.
God will give us a tribe that’s for life. My family easily fits into this category. They loved me and invested in me from the beginning of my life. I was born into their tribe, if you will. I now have some lifetime friends that fit into this category as well. We have been with each other through thick and thin. We are in it for life. They are my Life Tribe.
Other times, God will place you in a tribe for a season. Something you have and something they have clicks, and you begin to encourage each other. They are our Seasonal Tribe. God placed them in our lives for the season at hand.
PROMISED LAND DWELLERS
Lastly, it’s important we know who we are running alongside. I love the phrase, “If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.” I compare it to Dream Chasing. If you’re the only one Dream Chasing in your tribe, you might be working harder than you need to.
