For All the Dreamers and Graduates

For All the Dreamers and Graduates

The below article was written by Holley Gerth, a Wall Street Journal bestselling author, certified life coach, speaker and close friend of DaySpring. She loves encouraging the hearts of women through her popular blog, holleygerth.com.


This time of year brings all the graduates and dreamers in my world to my mind. You too? I'm especially thinking of our niece and nephew who will graduate high school soon. We are so proud of them.

I was recently looking back at my book, You're Made for a God-sized Dream, and I want to share it as an encouragement to all the graduates and dreamers in our lives (including our own hearts)...


Dear Dreamers and Graduates,

Before you ever came into being, God called your name. He formed you with love and intricately designed part of who you would become. You truly are made "in an amazing and wonderful way" Psalm 139:14 NCV.

Your journey on this path is not by coincidence. You are here because God looked out over all of history and chose you for a particular time and purpose. You could have entered the world a hundred years ago or a thousand years from now.

But you are in this generation, this time, and there will never be another you or another opportunity to do what only you are chosen to complete.

So go out there in boldness knowing that you don't have to be like anyone else. You don't have to do what any other person has done. You are chosen for one life - yours.

And the wonderful news? Whatever God chooses for you to do, he will equip you.

Being chosen means you will be given all you need. Being chosen means that success is simply obedience and trusting God will do the rest. Being chosen means that you have a great big God as your partner every step of the way.

Those who love you will be cheering you on every step too! The best is yet to be for you and we can't wait to see it unfold.
