From children to old age, we dream. I don’t fully understand why and how we dream but it’s something that is within each of us. God’s given us the ability to dream.
I believe God gives us the ability to dream in order to see into our future. To propel us forward and to give us a hope towards our future.
Ever since I was a little girl, I had dreams about what I wanted to do when I was older. One of those dreams was to be married and have my own family and live in a big house, unfortunately that dream has not come to pass yet but I know it will. God has given me a dream about my husband and given me dreams about my future family. I know it will happen because I’ve learnt to trust Him.
God’s given me so many dreams that I’m so certain of my future and that He has everything sorted for me. I don’t even need to worry.
I find that our dreams are closely related to the desires that we have in our hearts.
I guess in school and growing up we are not really encouraged how and what to do to make our dreams become a reality. It’s only now at the age of 32 that I’m starting to live my dreams, they are slowly coming to life but I’ve finally allowed myself to dream and have faith in God that He will give me the desires of my heart.
Yes we can have what we want but God’s word is the absolute truth and His word works. Gods word does not tarry and it does not return void. Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.”
I wondered why I could never accomplish anything in life. It was because I never had a relationship with God, I didn’t understand why I kept dreaming and imagining a bright future only to look at my miserable circumstances and get depressed.
Once I received Jesus as my Lord and saviour, I still didn’t put God first, I put Him at the bottom of the list or second, I tried to do everything in my own strength. I did everything out of works.
2017 has been the year where my dreams have actually become a reality. There are countless things that God has done in my life over the last 12 months but one thing is for sure…He loves me and wants to bless me. I need only follow Him, serve Him, rest and trust Him.
I re-dedicated my life to Jesus earlier this year and I said “Lord, this time I’m doing things Your way, I’m giving every part of my life over to You”. Slowly, God has weaved a fine tapestry of His goodness into my heart and life. 32 years is a long time to start making your dreams become a reality but in fact it’s been the best 12 months of my life for a long time and I’ve not done anything but to say “I choose You God”.
God has brought amazing people into my life and has given me opportunities to pursue my dreams. I thought it was too late but it’s never too late to start dreaming.
In fact, never stop dreaming. Never stop reaching for the stars, never stop running after God because the more you run after Him, the more He will reign His blessings and goodness all over your life. So much so that you will want nothing more than just to have Him love you alone. So much so that nothing else in the world will matter but His love alone, that’s when you will know the true meaning of “delighting” yourself in the Lord.
Whatever you dream and desire right now, God wants to bless you. Seek Him first and EVERYTHING else will be added. ~ Blessings Jonda
