“Have I ever told you the dream I have for my life? The thing I really want to do?” my friend asked me.
“No. I don’t believe you have!” I responded.
“Someday, I want to be a haven for children, ” she said. “It looks like that might be a reality by next summer.”
And then she outlined the steps she has taken to be debt free, work entirely from home, while at the same time, opening her space up to at-risk children. She has a dream!
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.Proverbs 13:12
Not all dreams come to us in the overnight hours. Sometimes it is in our everyday, routine tasks that a dream begins to take shape. A dream for a preferred future. Maybe it is a career change, a retirement plan, a home renovation, a new ministry — and when those dreams are realized, there is life.
What keeps you from dreaming about tomorrow? What stands in the way of achieving your dream? Who can you collaborate with to reignite passion and begin dreaming again?
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…Zechariah 4:10
Often the work begins with a dream….so let’s get dreaming!
