Peach says: I can remember dreams I had 15, 20 years ago. I don’t have those same dreams today. Over the last 5-6 years I’ve let them go, and moved on to various other dreams, and I’m probably in a transitional state of discovering new dreams. Because we should always dream, yes? I have spent the last 2-3 years realizing this and evaluating how I feel about it and what it might mean. And I had a realization about this today.
Like these two cakes one made it, the other didn’t, some dreams will prove themselves to be just that. Dreams. Nothing more. Nothing less. The dreams I have let go of, in more recent years, were still good for me, and still benefited me as well as those around me. Like a plant in the window following the light of the sun, and every so often you have to turn it so it can move toward the sun in in a new way. The dreams I had, that clearly are not happening and not my ‘dreams’ anymore, they grew me. They moved my focus in a direction that had me following the Lord in that particular direction, in a way that helped me develop in a fashion that I NEEDED to fulfill what He had/has for me. Not wasted. So, yes, dreams need goals, and goals need plans. And plans need work. But, when dreams fall away, it’s ok. The progress we make along the way, helps get us to NEW dreams, and The Author and Finisher of our faith is helping us get to His GOOD plan and purpose for us. Never stop dreaming. Never stop setting goals. Never stop planning. Never stop believing He has great plans for you. He’s growing you! In His Light!
