Loving Jesus more Than Our Dreams

1. Be willing to go. You may be unsure of the direction that the Lord is leading you, but keep your heart open to the Holy Spirit and willing to follow the Lord anywhere and watch Him move!

2. Let Him prepare you. Surrender your heart to the Lord's process, the Lord's timing surpasses our understanding.

3. Ask yourself, “What do I love more, Jesus or the dream I’m going after?” You May have to ask yourself this question several times along your journey in order to refocus your heart.

4. Remember that you don’t have to prove your worthy of your dream. Jesus has already approved you, now let Him train and teach you.

5. Simple and important, Jesus loves you and wants to give you the desires of your heart. He wants to plants them in you and then help you harvest them.

Loving jesus more than ourselves

2. Ask the Lord what is clouding your love lens. Ask Him to show you what is keeping you from receiving all the love He has for you.

3. Receiving of the Lords love and the Lord cleaning our love lens comes from worship. “Worship teaches your heart to believe what your soul knows.” 

4. Remember the Holy Spirit was sent to help us ( John 6:13). The battle of and for our hearts freedom is not one we have to fight alone. The Holy Spirit will lead you to the truth.
