Do you dream?
I suppose that most of us have dreams from time to time while we are fast asleep. However, the dreams I am alluding to, are those daytime, wide-awake dreams. Such dreams as losing weight and having an hour-glass figure, or a man dreaming that he could have that he-man physique. Perhaps we have dreams that we will win the lottery or fall into some inheritance that will totally change our financial picture for the better.
I have often wondered what would happen to my life if any of these type dreams come true for me. It does not take but a Nano second for me to stop dreaming and get back to work. Maybe you have had that deep, for lack of a better word, gut feeling that there was something good that would happen in your life if put forth an effort to make it so. Now, I mean that certain something that you desire to attain in life. You know that Cinderella moment, or perhaps the American Idol experience. You get the picture.
Dreams, wishes, and goals are very important for us. The important thing is that we strive to make the important things come true. Many times, they do come true. But, in such a different form that, we fail to recognize them. One thing is for sure, we must work and pray and work, to see a dream come true. Sometimes the waiting is the hardest part. However, the wait is worth it when at last we recognize, YES, it has happened. Then…I suggest a prayer of gratitude for the gift of strength and patience and, for that Help from Above that made it all possible.
