Like Brad said, God does not need your dreams. That is a burden you do not have to bear. Rather, He calls us all to pursue His dreams in order to step into a work that is greater than anything we could ever fathom on our own. His ways are greater and higher than ours. Trust in His sovereignty and allow Him to free you from the pressure of designing your own vision independent of His leading.
