I believe in dreams, and their importance in our lives. I think they can inspire and motivate us to do more, reach higher, achieve amazing things. But, I also realize sometimes we have to abandon dreams. The reasons don't really matter. There have been a couple abandoned dreams when I actually went through the complete cycle of grieving.
This isn't about abandoned dreams. (Go ahead, admit it: you thought this was going to get sappy and depressing, didn't you? WRONG! Just sappy.) Dear Reader, I pray you have rarely had to leave a dream behind. And I pray that letting go only led you to something even greater.
Well, isn't that amazing!
Dear Reader, I have no idea if any of these interconnected dreams are going to come true. Their likelihood seems better now than ever before. My excitement is two-fold.
Of course, I'm excited that these dreams may actually come to fruition. But equally exciting is knowing that the Lord hears and sees our innermost thoughts and hopes and dreams. When we live our lives in tandem with His, He longs to bless us like crazy. Including making our dreams come true.
Dear Reader, here are some things I fervently hope for you:
- that you have dreams, of assorted sizes, tucked in your heart;
- that you have already been blessed by having dreams come true;
- that you never stop dreaming and believing.
For now, I'm holding my triad dream up to the light, waiting, pondering, praying. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, what are some of the dreams you may have had tucked away for a while? What's holding you back from taking them out for a closer look? It's a new year: a good time to think about the dream, wrapped in a blessing, right around the corner.
