Dream Chasing

Dream Chasing

I recently completed a 20 day bible study hosted by Havilah Cunnington about dream chasing God’s way.  The bible study was called “Eat Pray Hustle- Dream Chasing God’s Way”.  I loved it because I couldn’t watch it every single day along with everyone else, but I was able to replay episodes and they were never more than 7 min long! Just perfect for me.  Lots of truth packed into very little time.  I wanted to share a few nuggets of revelation and insight I gained from this study. It was so enlightening!  We all have dreams and we all want to seem them fulfilled.  Here is a bit of what I learned:

  • Dreams are road maps to freedom
  • Your encounters with God are personal and powerful and will reveal the dream of God
  • Your dreams are connected to your gifts and talents
  • Dreams confirm what you already possess
  • “Overnight success takes 10 years” Don’t be discouraged if the dream takes time
  • No one can take the dream of God from you
  • Fear and unbelief are dream killers
  • Dreams are not bound by time
  • Protect your dreams
  • Dreams require a healthy envirmonment
  • Who is your dream chasing tribe? Family and community are so important in surrounding your dreams
  • Fulfilled dreams = a fulfilled life

There were so many more great nuggets in this study. I wish I could share them all. I feel so encouraged after this 20 day journey. You can view and listen to the entire study for free, here.

On to this outfit! I love items that are versatile.  This poncho can be worn two different ways which means two different outfits! Win. I also just love all the detailing.  These are my favorite jeans right now and no lie they are sooo comfy! I wear that like 3 days a week. My clutch was thrifted but I linked one similar.  I can’t get enough of amazing thrift store finds! Lastly, these shoes pictured below were a Marshall’s find from last year.  I love them so much! Open toed booty’s are the best & Marshall’s has a part of my heart! Lol

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog this fine Monday morning! Let me know your thoughts on dream chasing and this sweet poncho!! Much love,

Ruthie xo
