What is life? Is it to be lived for or dreamed about? Perhaps both.
Maybe our dreaming determines our living to some degree. And Yet so much tries to kill our dreams, snatch our dreams, take away our dreams, defer our dreams, and keep our dreams from reality.
Maybe then, we must fight for, pray for, and ask God to grant us the gift of dreaming afresh and anew. Dreaming God’s Dreams! Dreaming, hoping, and delighting in the things of God freshly poured out upon our hearts and minds like the morning dew. How we need it so! Perhaps if we dream right, we will live right, and then we shall know the answer to the inquirer’s quest.
What is life? Is it to be lived or dreamed about, or both?
The Spirit brings the gift of dreaming into the now. What God has hoped, becomes, even if at first just in our thoughts, a new reality.
We begin to see and dream in the now what God has always wanted since the beginning. God’s Dreams become our desire when the Spirit is at work.
Some people may never understand, but this is what happened deep in the soul place of Fredrick, Mother Jones Sojourner, Lucretia, Mary Mcloud, Dorothy, Martin, Medgar, Malcolm, Harriet, Rosa, Fannie Lou, and Mandela. What moved them and so many others?
God’s Dreams! By the Spirit, come take a look.
The cow lying down with the bear. Children playing over the hole of a snake. Lion and lamb frolicking together. God’s Dreams! Humanity redeemed. Grace imparted. Pain pushed away. Tears wiped. Death vanquished. The hungry fed. The hurting healed. Justice ruling. Righteousness prevailing. Deliverance complete. Satan snared.
God’s Dreams! What a wonder! What a look!
Our lives are transformed when we dream God’s Dreams! No longer mere mundane Movement. Away with despair and life without purpose! We now rise, captivated and controlled by God’s Dreams!
And so, it seems —our dreams determine our living, and we live because of our dreams.
Oh, Spirit of the living God, invade! Invade! Invade! Invade once again the nightmarish corners of our minds. Do not let the nightmares of injustice have the last say. Loose the prophetic flow into the depths of our being with God’s Dream…so that we might live anew and afresh!
