Some people go through life always dreaming but never fulfilling it.
Some go through life wanting to throw water on others’ dreams because they have no dream or their dreams have failed.
Some go through life living other people’s dreams.
The dreams I have had are not mine at all. They have been dreams given to me by God. Dreams that impact others’ lives and changes destinies.
Some have received, some have resisted, and some have stayed true to themselves and continued their apathetic life plan started years ago as a result of laziness and unconcern.
Dreams have a way of imploring one to go through life regardless of the storm, deaf to criticism and mockery. Dreams invite attitudes and disdain derived from jealous people who have lost their dreams.
Being around others who dream further engages and encourages those who are dreaming.
But there comes a time when the dream has to be planned, shared, illustrated and fulfilled. One cannot just sit around and think about what could be. No, they have to say it can be and let’s do it.
Persuading others to buy in to your dream, convincing a community to dream with you, putting those dreams on paper only to see it later come to fruition is part of the excitement.
When others catch the vision and buy into the dream and realize the potential of reality with you, that’s when it gets exciting.
My dream is big because God is big. How about yours?
I love the song, “I Made It Through The Rain” especially the verse at the beginning:
We dreamers have our ways
Of facing rainy days
And somehow we survive
We keep the feelings warm
Protect them from the storm
Until our time arrives
Then one day the sun appears
And we come shining through those lonely years
Dreams have a way of finding themselves into reality. Don’t quit dreaming. Don’t quit looking forward to that which God has placed in your heart. Dream until you can’t. Dream until you leave this place. Keep dreaming.
That’s what I think about it.
