FOLLOW THAT DREAM!
Have you been dreaming? Then follow your dream. Don’t give up on it. Be like your Creator. God had a dream. His dream was to have a family – an entire species of beings made exactly in His own image – speaking spirits – with free minds and free wills – who could dream, imagine, decide, and act, just as He could. Beings who could love as He loved. So He created that species. He created us for the purpose of loving us and being loved by us – according to His own Word on the subject. Unfortunately, we did not cooperate, so the dream cost God much more than it was ever intended to cost – and much more than He should have had to pay. It cost Him the sacrifice of His only-begotten Son.
But for God, the dream was worth whatever it cost. And as a result, the dream has come true – through Jesus Christ, His finished sacrifice, and the eternal life He earned for all of us – and that He freely gives to all of us who will surrender to Him. When we take Jesus as Lord, we are truly “born again” into the family of God. He has a real family now – one who loves Him. Oh, we may not be quite as perfect in our thinking and our actions as we need to be. But our hearts are like His, and that’s what it took to fulfill the dream. God will work with us from this point on and eventually, we will think, speak, and act just as He does as well.
I hope YOU are following YOUR dreams. I hope you’re not letting the cost of those dreams cause you to give up on them. If those dreams are in line with God and His love, they have every potential and every opportunity for fulfillment. Because – with God’s help – if you can dream it, you can do it!
