They are crazy things.
Often times they are difficult things.
Day dreams, night dreams, life dreams.
Sometimes dreams come crashing down.
Sometimes they are ripped away.
Sometimes it hurts so bad.
Sometimes I cry so hard I can't breathe.
Sometimes I want to scream at God.
Sometimes I yell at God. I know He can handle it.
And He loves me no matter how human I am.
He's got the best "dreams" for my life.
Better than I can imagine.
Even if they hurt like heck sometimes.
He doesn't promise an easy life.
He does promise He'll be there every painful step of the way.
His love is deeper and wider than any gut wrenching trial.
The little day brighteners He sends are priceless.
A few moments in His Word changes my perspective.
A few reminders of His faithfulness gives me new motivation.
A few recollections of what He's done in my life gives me hope.
He gives me the guts to dare to continue to dream.
He gives me the ability and gift to be crazy and have fun during even the darkest times.
He's teaching me to change what I look for and notice.
To look for the good things.
To be thankful for all the little things.
To trust Him with the big things.
The things so important to me I don't want to let go of them.
To have enough faith to allow Him to change my dreams.
To praise Him when the the going gets tough.
To continue to dream and trust Him with those dreams.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
