Dreams and Resolutions

“Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.” – Henry David Thoreau

As we head toward New Years, we find ourselves once again at a time when we set goals that will get us closer to our dreams. Whether it is getting in shape physically or financially or maybe even making a big career move such as starting a business, this is the time when we set our goals. Unfortunately, however, we all too often forget about or give up on those dreams until the next year when we are pumped up once again and “for sure going to make it happen this time.”

I like those words – Make It Happen. Nobody can make things happen for us, instead we have to go out and take the chance that we will fall on our faces and maybe even get kicked around a little. But will we stay down? Of course not! Paul said in Ephesians that “God . . . is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of – infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.”

So, have we stopped hoping or are we merely too afraid to take that first step out of the safety of the lifeboat? We were not created to live in mediocrity. Christ said that “The thief’s purpose is to kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness” John 10:10. Remember the guy who said “I will never leave you or foresake you”? He’s the same one who said that he wants us to have life and have it to the fullest. He’s still with us waiting for us to Make It Happen. So, let’s get on it and make our dreams come to life now while we still have life to live.

Just a thought,
