Praying for big things doesn’t make you weak. It opens you up for a higher strength.
If you don’t believe in your God-given gifts, in your God-given drive, in your God-given life - who the HECK else is going to? Who else is going to send that email or take that trip or decide whether today is the day you invest or tomorrow or never? I mean, moms and mentors and best friends rock. They get us pretty far. But there’s gonna come a time when you have to take that interview or make that deal and there is no one else examining your heart and choosing your life except you, and your God.
Friend if you’ve been holding back big prayers about big dreams that, between you and me, you want so flipping desperately to work out in your favor, I want you to clasp your hands together, close your eyes, and tell Him to “TAKE IT.”
Tell Him you’re ready to hold life open handed.
You’re done being the driver in a storyline already written.
You’re finally open to feeling something about these things - you’re searching for solid ground and you are now, today, awake to a holy one.
God doesn’t call us to pretend like we don’t want what we want. He calls us to recognize it, face it head on, tell Him we’re holding on to that dang dream too tightly, and ask for His help in deciding what’s next. Tomorrow? He just might answer.

Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
