Dreams

The other day I started thinking about dreams and how important they are.  By dreams I don’t mean the ones you have while you sleep or even when you are spacing out in class.  I mean dreams, things that you have always wanted to do or want to accomplish.  Something that you get excited about, and come alive in!

We are each created so uniquely that no one else can do what we do.  God created us each with a specific purpose and to come alive in different ways. “Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:16

There is only one of us.  We are the only one who thinks the way that we do, acts that way we do, and responds the way we do.  Yes, there may be similarities among people, but no body can make the specific impact that we were designed to walk in.

God wants you to dream, and imagine what can be possible with His help.  What is your dream?  Playing professional sports, getting married, writing a book, or starting an art school?  What about seeing slaves set free, or broken family relationships restored?  At times our dreams can seem so distant, and so far out of our reach.  The world around us and the situation we are in may not look like what we imagined or seem like it is on the path to our dream.

The best thing is that God has us written on the palms of His hands; He will not forget you. (Isaiah 49:16)  Know that He knows your every move and wants you to ask for your hearts desire- your dream.  Don’t let fear get in the way, because nothing is impossible with God.

While our dreams may not come together in the way that we expected, don’t lose sight of the little things that God is doing along the way.  How has He shown His faithfulness?  What is He up to?  He does not put dreams and desires in our hearts to watch them fade away, unless He is replacing it with something else from Him.

Take a step.  Do the next thing that God is saying to do…you never know where it may lead you.

Here is a great blog post about dreams:
