Your Very Best Idea Ever

January 22, 2016

It’s locked in you. You know it. You feel it.

It’s a sacred stirring. You sense it so deeply that you know it’s not an inkling of your imagination but rather an igniting of God’s revelation. God is pointing you in the direction of this idea. You are thrilled by the general sense of it. You are willing to do it. You are eager for the specifics and desperate for the details to come into focus.

You just can’t get a clear picture of what it is.

You just haven’t figured out how to get to it.

This is the chaos of the creative who gets close, very close to their very best idea ever.

I know this version of blurry vision. My eyes have longed to see and my fingers have pulsed to touch the defined edges of this buried brilliance that feels as uncertainly certain as the wind. I feel it, but I can’t hold it.

So, we go to God with this declaration of desperation, “Please, Lord, give me this very best idea ever!”

But God is too good to do this to us, my friend.

We don’t know the weight for which we are asking. Our very best idea feels as light as a feather when it’s a general notion floating in and out of our dreams. But it carries with it a crushing weight if it lands on a person’s character unprepared for this calling.

I’m sharing some truths that we all need to know about our very best idea ever on (in)courage today. Click here to read more!

    This was unbelievably inspiring. I can’t even put it into words. But the anticipation of what God is going to do is so exciting. I have been waiting for many things for many years and unclear about many things and impatient about the waiting. But realize that the waiting in the sense of this article is one of the greatest parts of the gift that is yet to come…the answer.
    I pray that I can embrace Him to the fullest in the waiting!
    Thank you Lisa,
    ( I love your book the best Yes FYI)

    I was struggling today. Trying to find the path I feel God is calling me to and yet feeling so uncertain how to get there. Desperately seeking an outlet for the idea within, but just not sure where or how. Then, I found this post. Thank You for these words. For reminding me that I need to keep on working on me and God will work out the rest.
