Do You Have a Dream?

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:4

The most secret, sacred wish that lies deep down at the bottom of your heart, the wonderful thing that you hardly dare to look at, or to think about- the thing that you would rather die than have anyone else know of, because it seems so far beyond anything that you are, or have at the present time, that you fear that you would be cruelly ridiculed if the mere thought of it were known – that is just the very thing that God is wishing you to do or be for him. And the birth of that marvelous wish in your soul – the dawning of that secret dream – was the Voice of God himself telling you to arise and come up higher because he has need of you.

    Thank you for writing this. You know I have lost the desire for my deepest dream. I guess because of all the trials and tribulations I’m going through. I use to have a burning desire for my dream to come true but I feel as though it won’t ever come true because my dream seems so far away and unrealistic. Why do we allow the world to take away our dreams that God Himself put there?

    I had read and reread this post, over and over it swirled in my head as I thought about what that thing was….the thing that I want so badly, “because it seems so far beyond anything that you are” I am scared of failure, of ridicule or of being told “it’s not possible” I want it so badly. Do I dare imagine that it could really happen? I will dare to dream it, and dare to pray for it.
