I asked the Lord to give me way to visually show people how easy it is to fulfill even the largest dream, vision, or goal they may have. He brought to my remembrance a metaphor about “How do you eat an elephant?” At first I thought, “in one setting? That’s impossible. It would probably take weeks just to eat an elephant leg. By that time I’ll be so bored from such a task. I know that soon, as I have done many times before, I will have abandoned and forgotten all about it.”
Then I remembered the answer that was given, “one bite at a time”. In an instant I imagined a huge jungle-sized elephant sitting on a white plate of china, and myself with a knife and fork in my hands. Then, I understood the metaphor! I thought, “I can do that.” Then, the impossible became possible.
So much of the time, like eating this elephant, our dreams, visions and goals that God has put in our hearts will seem much too big, take too long, and seems so hard, overwhelming, and impossible to accomplish. The problem is that we tend to look at accomplishing our task(s) the same way we first looked at eating the elephant, only as a whole. But there is another way.
The same way that you would eat an elephant, one bite at a time, is the very same way to fulfill the dream, vision, or goal that God has given us, “one segment at a time”.
The Dream Planner is uniquely, specifically and especially designed to assist you in fulfilling any size dream, large or small, one segment at a time. The Dream Planner gives you much more control and command over your time so that you can “do all things through Christ who strengthens you.”
