Never Stop Dreaming
Children are dreamers, they see themselves doing great and noble things. “When I grow up, I’m going to be . . . a firefighter, a policeman, a nurse, a princess.” Yet, as the realities of life sink in around us, it is all too easy to give up on dreaming.
Is it because dreams involve risk? I don’t know, but I do know that I sit and counsel with way too many people who have quit dreaming. Without dreams we do not live, we exist. Without dreams there is no passion. Without dreams there is no vision and as it is written, “Without a vision the people perish.” Don’t let the comfortable and the convenient rob you of your destiny. You were created for greatness, but before greatness comes dreaming. Chose big humongous impossible dreams that challenge you. Take the risk, dare to dream again.
This is one of the greatest things that you can model for your children. Make dreaming big be the norm in your family not the exception. Jeremiah 29:11-13 – God has great plans for you and your family!!!
