Great Things

Last year I dreamed of sitting with an angel at the table. She pushed corn, hot dogs, and ham off my plate and said to me, "Expect Great Things."

I thought that it meant "Expect great things from God, Do great things for God."

A month later, a girl from church brought some food over. Corn on the cob, mini hot dogs, and ham. 

I kept asking what the great things were. My fame as a writer? Healing for me and son? Then I was outside and opened the Bible to this. Seekest thou great things for thyself? 

Jeremiah 45:5
And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.
Jeremiah 45:4-5 

good confirming point.  Jeremiah lived in such an incredible time; I cant imagine how he dealt with it emotionally. So, we are to expect great things. But we are also part of the world. The great things we do or that happen to us aren't meant for us alone. And if the world around us falls, are we to expect great good things  for ourselves while all around are suffering? Heck, I'd like to be super-wealthy and to have my books be famous. But only to help others. I'd like my son and my healing to manifest...but only so we can help to heal others. Will see. In the meantime, here are some other wonderful great thing verses.
