We are the warriors, ready to slay the dragon.
We dream of a world with more laughter and less pain.
We see more than meets the eye.
We are the Dreamers.
As a dreamer, we believe we can accomplish anything we set our minds too. And sometimes, we don’t understand when others give up easily.
Big Dreams, Big Risks
Do they not know that the biggest dreams require the biggest risks? That seeing something come to life takes a lot of sweat and tears?
Have you given up? Maybe you dreamed, and the dream came up empty. You tried, and everything fell apart… or you were too afraid to try. Did someone, somewhere, tell you that you couldn’t do it? That you’d never be good enough, smart enough, or good-looking enough to reach your dream? Please stop believing those lies.
Take a moment to soak this in: God isn’t done with you. He still has dreams and plans for your life.
Deep down, you know it’s true.
You let the dream go, thinking it could never be. But is that hope I see? That little seed of your dream has just been dormant. Now that it is seeing light, it wants to grow. Will you water it? Some days it may seem to just sit there, not growing or changing. But don’t let it wither away. Work at it, fertilize it, and give it sunlight.
Even More Beautiful
When the time is right, God will bring about a more beautiful bloom than you imagined. Actually, it will be quite different than what you thought the seed would produce. But isn’t that what makes it even more beautiful? The fact that you can tell it was not of your own doing, but Christ at work in and through you, bringing your dream into being?
Guess what?! You are not limited to one dream. On the contrary, you shall have many dreams. Not all of them will be your job to see through from start to finish. You will need people to join you in making your dream happen, people who believe in you, and people to make you think outside the box. Then they may take on your dream as their own, and God calls you elsewhere.
Either way, keep dreaming, keep fighting, and keep believing. The adventure with Christ is a lifelong one… and someday I truly desire to hear “Well done, my good and faithful servant,” from the One who loved me and held my hand every day of the journey.
Are you excited for an awfully big adventure?
