The Holy One is extremely generous. We have a greathearted God who gets excited about the things we get excited about. He knows us so well! As we grow to love the Almighty He caters to the dreams hidden in our hearts. What a concept!
Some people have strong visions, and they go for it, build their lives around it and fight to promote it. However, God is going to open doors that lead to the fulfillment of dreams beyond what we were shooting for. And even if we’re not dreaming, or if we have stopped dreaming, or if we don’t exactly know what our vision is, God, who knows our hearts, knows what makes us tick.
The Lord Almighty catches our dreams. Under His care this dream will take on shape, color, and flourish; before we know it, this dream will turn into reality.
I once had a dream. It was a dwarf of a dream. I dreamed that I could make music on the side. That dream actually didn’t come true. My day job became all-consuming and didn’t leave much room for my sidekick.
One day, out of the blue, I got a call from my doctor’s office at work. I was told not to drive. “Have someone drive you to the emergency room. You have an aortic aneurysm that is about to go bad.” – Well, dip me in buttermilk! I had no idea. Didn’t I just go in for a CAT scan? In the end, that CAT scan initiated my first open heart surgery.
Unfortunately, it took two more open heart surgeries to convince me to let go of my so-called day job. I finally started devoting my energies to the things I love doing. And as it turned out, music was only part of it. Once I tapped into my dream, more avenues opened up.
Now my husband and I own a publishing company dedicated to publishing our music, our art work and writings. Never in a million years could I have come up with a dream like that!
Whatever your dreams are, His dreams are bigger. Personally, I think that our dreams are sometimes detrimental to the bigger purpose God has in mind for us. Our own dreams can very easily turn into a horrible nightmare. How many people have dreamed to become rich and famous, and when their dreams came true they had lost themselves along the way.
Our safest bet is to entrust our fickle hearts to our faithful God. God is a catcher of dreams. Let Him catch yours too!
