We always know when we’re hungry, but we don’t always know what we’re hungry for. The same is true in our lives-we know that we want to do more, to see more, to be more-but we’re not always sure exactly how to gratify those hungers.
According to the dictionary, appetite is “an instinctive physical urge.” Hunger is so basic that it’s part of our physical makeup. It’s the mountaintop you want to reach, the door you want to open, the fire you want to light. True hunger is the lack of some nutrient, some essential element that allows you to grow. Satisfying that hunger is about satisfying your spirit, allowing it to grow. That hunger comes from a God idea.
There’s a difference between a good idea and a God idea. Good ideas are good things, usually. They make your life a little better, a little easier, or a little happier, maybe all three. Good ideas spring from what is happening in your daily life, and you need all of them you can birth, beg, or borrow. Just making it out of bed in the morning and getting all the way back into bed at night can be an exhausting journey.
“For me, ambition has become a dirty word. I prefer hunger. To be hungry-great. To have hopes, dreams-great.” Johnny Depp
Our lives are so busy that it’s easy to forget our dreams. But we never lose our appetite, so even when we haven’t found that God idea, we try to satisfy that hunger with something else. Like working too much. Or playing too much. Or, depending too much on someone else for our happiness. Or watching TV too much. We get filled up every day with the spiritual equivalent of junk food-somebody’s temper tantrum at work, a disappointment about something that seemed to be an opportunity, being ignored by someone we love.
We become filled up until we can’t take any more, but we’re not really satisfied. You know that feeling you have after getting a big ol’ bag of takeout food-too much bread, too many fries and chips and cheese, too much sweet soda and ice cream. You’re just melding with the couch, right? Can’t move a muscle. That’s what it feels like to live without a God idea. You can’t move.
We can’t sit by and let our dreams, our destiny slip by. We need to be hungry for life. Not just any old life, but the life and dream we were purposed to live with greatness. I’m excited about joining people on their journey to living out their dreams…living their utmost life. I look forward to helping you sculpt and develop your life, talents and dreams through the Dream Academy.
