DREAM ON!

"...men shall dream dreams" (Acts 2:17)

 

Actually the text says "your old men" shall dream dreams but I think all men ought to dream. And the dreams ought to be daydreams, I mean from sunup to sundown the dream needs worked on. Florence Littauer has an outline she has used in countless seminars. First she urges, dare to dream. Dreaming costs because it forces us out of the comfort zone. Dreamers have to stretch out into the future. The quest messes up routine. Next she bids us, prepare the dream. School isn't one of those necessary evils. It is preparatory to life and success. Preparation includes, study, planning, targeting, marketing, setting goals, defining the dream, setting deadlines and so on. To that let me add that we must square the dream. Make certain it is God's will. Focus on the goal, laying out the details. Not everything will work by a squared plan, there are always alterations made to any blueprint during construction, but the job will be completed much sooner with a course of action than without. And we must declare the dream, because until we get out on the limb with a public declaration our commitment level may never be enough to see us through to the end.

 

Be always ready to spare the dream. Those navigating deep waters will run into sharks. Obstacles are what get in the way of moving things. If you're not going anywhere you will never meet an obstacle or a problem. Hurdles are in the fast lane; on the sidewalk they are only cracks. So be ready to defend what you believe in. When critics seek to demolish your dream spare it...fight for it. Littauer also says we need to repair the dream. Emotions get damaged and hopes often get shattered along the way. In that case we need to remember what it was we were believing for to begin with. After Edison's laboratory burned to the ground he had to make a decision, concede or rebuild? Such questions are easy to answer when you have a dream. Whether an all-out fire or just a test tube blowing up, the Wizard of Menlo Park continually repaired the dream.

 

Obviously, the final step is to share the dream. People need mentors, role models, people that know the way, can go the way and will show the way. Bible characters' stories are documented for us as "examples" (1 Corinthians 10:11). Want to know how to slay giants? Go talk to David. Want to lead a great army? Check out Joshua. Great recipes are not to be locked up in a bank vault so only one person can know the secret. Someone else needs to know what you know...share the dream. Iron sharpens iron. The babe leaped in Elizabeth's womb when Mary saluted her. Something inspiring occurs when faith people share their stories and compare miracles. The "babe", that is, the growing miracle inside the one will leap when in the presence of the miracle inside the other. Or as it has been said, nothing breeds success like success! So my power wish for you today is...DREAM ON! Some people speak those two words as if dreams are lofty wishy-washy things, but I speak them in absolute faith that you will reach your goals.
