If I Was An Elephant…..

If I was an elephant…well…I would forget this pastor's wife thing and go roll around in the mud. Of course peanuts would on the menu Monday- Friday. Possibly even some boiled ones from GA on the weekends. I would snuggle my elephant husband pretty much the whole day because elephants are often seen caressing each other. If I was an elephant I would definitely be an artist. Hand me a paint brush, paint my foot, call it elephant art. 


Do you remember as a kid what it was like to dream of who/what you wanted to be when you grew up? A world of possibilities...maybe some of you wanted to be an elephant. Sadly, I never though of that. We dreamed of being astronauts, singers, football players, teachers, giraffes, and so on. All of that dreaming, then we grew up. We became pastors' wives. 

What would you do if you were an elephant? Pastor's wife do you still dream? No we probably aren't dreaming of being astronauts anymore, however we can dream again. We are already in our dream role. But dreaming doesn't end there. I never want to become stagnant as a pastor's wife. I want to always be growing and developing and dreaming of who I can be and want to be as a pastor's wife.

This year I want to learn how to love people better. With being an introverted pastor's wife people don't always feel loved by me right away. I also want to become better at speaking out loud. Give me paper and I can get what I am trying to say out, however I need to work and grow in the area of speaking with my voice. I want to write a devotional this year, so I need to start using my time better to be able to accomplish that. I want growth, more knowledge, wisdom, and scripture in my life. 

Yesterday I may have failed at dreaming. I may not have read my bible. I may not have used all of the fruit of the spirit in my actions with my family. But that doesn't mean I can't dream today. The bible says, His mercies are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:22-23) When we stop dreaming, we stop growing. If we don't dream/pray about who we can and want to be, then we will just be. It is when we stop dreaming that we stop growing, and it is when we stop growing that we start dying. 

Dream as a pastor's wife. DREAM AGAIN. God isn't done with you yet. He didn't give you this dream role to just get by. He wants you to dream. He wants to grow you. 

Pastor's wife, what would you do if you were an elephant?

If I was a pastor's wife, I would…………….
