Never Allow Your DREAMS To Die For A Reality…
‘I’m a big fan of Dreams. Unfortunately, Dreams are the first casualty in life–people seem to give them up quicker than anything for a REALITY.’ -Kevin Costner
Allowing our Dreams to die to, as they say, ‘Face reality,’ is a settling for less than we are and a giving up on what we want to become, on what we could become. No matter whom we are or where we are, we ALL have Dreams or have had Dreams of becoming or doing something Great in our lives. We have ALL had or continue to have our Hearts whisper or either scream to us from within, telling us to listen to it and follow its lead to reach our ULTIMATE happiness. Our destiny that GOD has planned for us but we, as humans, give up on our Dreams and settle for a reality that’s beneath us or not a part of our ‘greater-good.’ We tell ourselves that our Dreams are so slow to come to fruition that they must not be meant for us to achieve and we give up on them, throwing in the towel, instead of holding on to our patience and persevering until our Dreams comes to pass. We give in to our ‘so-called’ reality and go about our lives day to day simply existing, stagnant, unhappy and unfulfilled because we have allowed our Dreams, our Hearts, the voice of GOD within us to die or to be taken up by someone else. We have to remember that GOD said in HIS word that, ‘A Man that faints along his road to a goal set before him is not fit for Heaven.’ GOD needs those of us who will listen and take heed to our Hearts, HIS voice within us and persevere, endure, have patience and Active Faith, stepping out there and doing ALL that we can to allow our Dreams to live and see them through to fruition. That is the reason HE provided us the Dreams to start with, to see them be the same outside of us in the Natural just the way we see them on the inside of us in our Hearts.
My Friend, your Dreams are a preview to your Greatness. All Men who have achieved Great things have been dreamers. BIG DREAMERS! And, I feel that those who do most, Dream most. Those that do not allow themselves to Dream, or that allow their Dreams to die may accomplish some things but not the truly BIG and Amazing things. Not the things placed in them by GOD. Those things are achieved by the Dreamers of Dreams. Those that allow themselves to Dream and follow their Dreams through to fruition are the ones that have VISION. They are the ones who can see the INVISIBLE and have the patience, endurance, perseverance and ACTIVE FAITH to do the IMPOSSIBLE. These are the ones that ‘Change the World!’
I, Myself, am a DREAMER. A BIG DREAMER! And, I pray daily for the strength, the Courage and the Heart to never allow My Dreams to die. I have Dreams of being the COMPOSER and not just a part of the orchestra or the audience. I have Dreams of being the AUTHOR and not just the reader. I have Dreams of being the CHOREOGRAPHER and not just a backup Dancer. I have Dreams of being the VOICE OF CHANGE and not just a voice in the crowd of voices. I have Dreams of being in a GREAT MARRIAGE with a GREAT WOMAN and not just in a marriage and going through the motions. I have Dreams of being a GREAT MAN doing GREAT THINGS and not just a Man among Men. I have Dreams of being a LEADER and SERVANT to the people and not just a follower. I have Dreams of being a CHANGE AGENT and not one that simply speaks of a change. I am a DREAMER of DREAMS and I will continue to be because I know that, where My Dreams are, that is where GOD is. I will never allow them to die. I will see them through to fruition because GOD makes it more evident to Me every day, that My DREAMS are coming true.
No matter what your Dreams are, My Friend, I hope that you will allow your Dreams to live, give them life continually, never allow them to die. No matter how long their coming to fruition seems to take, keep praying, keep the FAITH, have Courage, patience, endurance and persevere until your DREAMS are the TRUTH.
