When you were a child, what did you “pretend” to be? Did you become the thing you aspired to be?
I had wanted to be a school teacher, it didn’t happened, but I encouraged my children to take up education that didn’t happen either, however my son is a Chiropractor and his wife is an elementary school teacher, my daughter is an amazing wife and mother of two, married to a wonderful man who works for a law firm. When her son, 16, was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes she became acquainted with every facet of the disease and keeps him adjusted so well that he is in excellent health, and her daughter is a beautiful, hard working 24 year old who works as a dental assistant. So, I’m not a teacher in a school but I must have done something or taught something right to have raised two such wonderful children. I envisioned being a wife with a husband that came through the front door, like Ricky and Lucy, or Warren and June Cleaver, and said “Honey I’m home, what’s for dinner?” That dream ended in divorce. Then there’s the part of me that wants to feed the world, to teach an amazing, eye opening, revelation revealing Bible study, or lead a prayer group that can change the world, yes you are right, I had a lot of lofty dreams. The biggest one through everything else was that I wanted to write a book full of wonderful stories or maybe one great epic novel. Maybe it’s just that I never settled on one subject that was important enough to me to explore and make it come to pass.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Now, what about you? What are the dreams and visions for your future? Have they come to pass, or have they flushed along with all the other waste in your life?
Don’t give up on your dreams, they can still come true!
