Jill and I have been married for a little over 30 years. I remember a conversation we had shortly after we started dating. It was a conversation about dreams… dreams we had for our future together… dreams for the life we would live together and the things we would accomplish together.
It’s funny to me how things look so much different now than they did then. There are some things that we dreamed about that we’ve accomplished, but many of those dreams still remain… dreams.
So, what happened?
Well, I guess LIFE happened. You know… marriage, children, jobs, careers… life. I mean, that is the adult answer, right? We give up our dreams to live responsible, adult lives. The question is “Is that really how we were created to live?”
Psalm 37, 4-5 says this; “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.”
I’ve decided to let myself dream again. I’ve decided that, as I worship, I will allow God to touch those areas of my life that I have let die and bring them back to life. I will allow Him to awaken the dreams He gave me so long ago. It will be an adventure and I’m not sure where this journey will take me, but I’ve decided to trust Him. After all, He did promise me that His plans for me are good.
Will you allow Him to awaken your dreams?
