Do you have one so deep down inside you some people close to you don’t even realize it. How long has it been there? Do you know when it will be unleashed? Does carrying it around every day hurt?
I’m talking about a dream. A desire to do something for God. Perhaps more people have them than we would know. There are those who want to be in one form of ministry, or another, full time. Not just to minister on weekends, or part time, but all the time. Not getting that opportunity can hurt, and at times it makes getting up and going to work somewhere we don’t want to be extremely hard to do.
Yes, I have one. I can relate to Joseph in Genesis 35:7, “Joseph had a dream.” I desire more than anything to become a full time author, and public speaker. I write where and when I can. I try my best to be faithful with the time I have to minister with words. I struggle to, but I know I need to be content where God has me now. There are people where I am now that need to be ministered to full time.
I am learning this: to be faithful where I am today, and that practice will prepare me to be faithful where I want to be. If you have one, I know what you are going through. If you would like to be on this special list of God dreamers, so that I can pray for you as well then let me hear from you at: firstname.lastname@example.org As I have shared with another just this past week, it stays with me, but you can know this; there is at least another who understands what you feel, what you want, and what you cry out to God for, that the dream will one day be more than a dream. It will be your life.
