Last week, the wheels started turning in my head after my last blog post to start a new “series” within my blog about others who are pursuing their dreams, too. I often get goosebumps when I hear about people’s personal stories of how God is speaking to them and working in their lives. I get so excited and passionate about this that I thought it would be a great opportunity to hear more stories and share them for all of us to gain inspiration. It is refreshing and motivating to be reminded that God truly cares and has a purpose for each one of us.
One thing that significantly influenced this idea was a CD that I listened to of a talk by a woman named Mary Vogrinc entitled, Saying Yes to God; One Mother’s Journey. She shared some stories about caring for fifty-four foster children over the years and moments where she had to put her trust in God. One thing that she said, in particular, made a big impression on me. She talked about how God plants seeds in our soul for the future. In her own life, she shared how she found an 18-month old baby abandoned in a car of a pharmacy parking lot when she was a teenager. The baby survived a day in a hot car with no food or water and was turned over to the Department of Children and Family Services. Who knew that later she and her husband would be foster parents?!
If you are pursuing God’s calling for your life or know somebody who is following their dreams, please email me at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you and can’t wait to see how God is working! I will be sharing my first “Dreamer in the Spotlight” post very soon!
Update on Adam’s Musical Journey: Adam will be auditioning for “The Voice” this weekend. Do you think it is a coincidence that his gigs were cancelled this weekend and then found out today about the Nashville auditions?! I guess we will find out… He is in the process of figuring out which songs that he wants to sing for the producers/judges. Please pray for him on Saturday!
