Dreaming…

I have decided that no matter what I am going to dream and I am going to follow Jesus into the future he is stirring in my dreams. This past ministry trip I took back to the mid-west I had a hand full of meetings and was speaking at a camp but one of the things that really stood out to me about this trip was the two little kids I sat next to on my plane rides. A young boy to Kansas City and a young girl on my way home from Kansas City.  Both were around the age of 12 and both were full of the kind of imagination that only a little kid can be full of.

The little girl, Kimberly was an artist. In her words “I’m really good at drawing, you want me to draw you something.” She is dreaming of a life as an artist some day and she drew for me a suburb little elephant.

Then there was Tyler, he wants to be a baseball player and he’s sure he will play for the Yankees someday and drive expensive cars! Yes the Yankees, despite the fact he was wearing a Red Sox hat. The Red Sox were his other favorite team. Tyler’s dream of being a baseball player was the first thing he shared with me. He’s a dreamer!

These two kids were dreamers…

I think we let things steal our dreams all to often.

Not to long ago I was able to sit in on an interview with Erwin McManus and also chat with him a bit. He made a statement that I found absolutely intriguing and I have been thinking about every since. He said that God dreams…

I’m not sure what he meant but I think I believe it. And since I am called to be like God, made in his image, I think I to am created to dream as well.
