About the Author

Anjuli grew up as a missionary kid secretly wondering, “Why does everyone else understand what a relationship with Jesus is, but me?” It wasn’t until she ran into her fears instead of from them, that Anjuli found her voice and the love of God meeting her there. She is a...

  1. Wow, Anjuli…you touched on something I don’t think I’ve every thought about–that our dreams are a means of entering into the lives God called us to, not escaping [fill in the blank]. I’m gonna sit with that a while. I felt a Holy Spirit twinge, so I’d better listen … :).


    • Thank you, Robin! I have been thinking about this a lot recently. I am so glad it encouraged you. Dream on, friend!

  2. These words! Whoa! They hit home today. I needed the reminder I don’t need to have it all figured out. Trust the Lord and the journey I’m on with him as the pilot.

  3. Thank you, Anjuli! What wise words! I will ponder them today, while I explore what I’m dreaming of.

  4. Anjuli,
    Thank you for this.

    I feel so much pressure to find that something & create.


    I just need to rest, sit, let it find me.

    • Dawn, I am not sure you will see this, but you described me exactly! A very profound statement. This spoke to my yearning soul. Bless you!

  5. Good thing for you to write and share how to continue to walk God in life. God’s the captain of my ship of life. I have had plans to help people in life with Young Living items that are helpful in life that’s helped me through 5 years, as of 1st full week of June. Then pandemic hit and life in the world changed again. Will see what happens this year. Prayers always good to do for self and those in need of healing , etc.

  6. Amazing! Touching and thought provoking.
    Take care dear friend as you dream and walk toward your journey.

  7. I don’t believe in coincidences because God know everything.

    There are a lot of circumstances that I don’t understand and I don’t have to understand matters and situations. We can take a leap of Faith and wait on God to reveal what He wants us to embrace when He is ready to add to our growth patterns.

    Fear is not a spirit that God has given to us. God has given us the Spirit of Power, the Spirit of Love and the Spirit of a Sound Mind.

    How long will it take for me to make my own decisions about speaking up when I want to be seen and heard even at the age of 64. I have permission to change my mind, thoughts and behaviors. My opinions are to line up with the Word of God.

    The Bible says we have not because we ask not or we ask amiss (with the wrong motive/selfish intentions). I’m not supposed to only want success without wanting others to embrace success as well. Then engage in works that will edify (help to encourage, enhance and grow the Church). Time belongs to God. He has already set boundaries for our life. Get in line with God’s Plans for your life. Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee.

    As long as we are living on this side of Heaven, we will have the struggle between right and wrong (spiritually and naturally). We need the Strength, Power and Wisdom to win battles as they arrive. Remember, we win the war, Victory in Jesus !

    Dreams are seeded in our hearts by our Creator. Sometimes we don’t know our dreams until the Holy Spirit reveals the dreams to us. We can accept the dreams and ask for wisdom to walk the journey it will take for the dream to come to fruition. Never give up, don’t be discouraged or dismayed because it is our God who goes with us. He will never leave or forsake us.

    Glory Hallelujah ! Thank You Lord for Your Plans for my life.

    With Much Gratitude,

    I have dreams waiting . . .

  8. So touching and heart felt. Absolutely beautiful writing. I could feel your longing and your loneliness. I am so blessed, with so much, and yet there is still this empty place in my heart that I have never been able to fill. A dream, that perhaps I ran from…
    Like Ana said in her comment, maybe that dream will find me. Blessings for the journey we are all on to do more for our wonderful Father God in Heaven.

    • Sorry, I meant to reference Dawn’s comment…typed in wrong name. Sorry Dawn!

  9. Anjuli,

    This is so true. I remember years ago praying for a godly husband to be there when my parents aged more. Four years later God sent the most wonderful, caring hubby I could ask for. He allowed me to quit for a while & be available for my parents & his as well.

    Now wanting to leave this job for one that uses my skills better. I get interviews & have people say good things about me, yet no new job offers. Can’t understand why. God knows & He will orchestrate my life & dreams.

    Blessings 🙂
