Living the dream
We buy into it every day – the idea that there is always more.
We can be more.
We can have more.
We can do more.
There is a dream and God wants us to live it.
I agree. God wants to bless us and doesn’t want us to settle for second best in any aspect of our lives. But we must gain a little perspective. While we dream of the future we are still in the here and now.
Recently I’ve been feeling a bit frustrated. Frustrated because everyday life was getting me down. I know God has promised good things in the future but the meantime was rather mean. I was frustrated because I felt I wasn’t ‘living the dream.’
Then god gave me a well-deserved slap in the face.
He reminded me that
- People living on the streets dream of living in a home.
- People who have just been made redundant dream of having a job.
- People who have just received bad news from the doctor dream of good health.
I have all these things and more besides.
I am living the dream.
