“Are you doing what you were created to do? What can you DREAM of doing that would get you out of bed in the morning and keep you awake at night?” Dr. Myra Perine
Every summer, our church invites famous speakers within the U.S. and sometimes from around the world. This is good to give the congregation a chance to hear other pastor’s insight and to give our pastor a break. It is very hard to preach Sunday after Sunday all year long.
One such speaker was Dr. Myra Perrine – a famous Author, Life Coach and Church Resource Minister.
She told us that dreams help you discover your inner compass and can also provide a picture of your future that you want. Dreams are treasures. They can show your life as it is or as it could be. Of course, she also reminded us that dreams can come with a price. It will cost you to take risks you need to take. Often, sacrifice and pain cannot be avoided to fulfill your dreams.
I think whether you are a Christian or not, the successful processing of dreams are the same. The only difference is a Christian will often look to and rely on God to restore them in the midst of difficulties.
Dreams with God have many benefits. Along the way, He will be our helper and sometimes He takes our burdens away. Many people succeed without God’s help. But many of them are very lonely after they reach the top of the mountain. Some of them even destroy their lives as well as their families.
Dream with an unselfish motivation and succeed with a blessing to the world as well as in Heaven. That will be the greatest fulfillment.
