A Stream of Dreams


One simple question–just one–opened the floodgates.


Where do you see us in five years?


My husband and I lay in bed facing each other, our heads on the pillows. One simple question. A stream of dreams.


  • For our careers.
  • Our family.
  • Our church.
  • Our neighborhood.


Some dreams were goofy; others serious. Nonetheless, they were–they are–our dreams.

God wants us to dream. He places desires in us and the power to carry them out (Philippians 2:13). He rejoices when we give ourselves the freedom to dream–to express our desires–big or small. Whether we want…


  • A family.
  • Our own business.
  • Friends that are welcome at any time.
  • A dog to play with.
  • Missions trips to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.


God can make my dreams a reality. My life can take a sudden turn, and things don’t turn out as I dreamed. But God’s ways are not my ways (Isaiah 55:8). When I think of how God has brought me to this very place in my life–how all the events and life decisions to this point are shaping my innermost dreams into reality, not even the best Hollywood director could have written my story.


And to think of what is yet to come!



My mind goes to the Biblical character Esther–an orphaned Hebrew young girl adopted by her uncle and later made Queen alongside the Persian King Xerxes. She later saved the lives of her Jewish people. I’m sure she never saw that in her dreams. But God did!


We–like Esther–can have a life far better than those in movies because we have the Master Storymaker.



No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9).


Come alongside…What dream has been taking shape within you? Would you speak it into existence–give it life with your words? Will you let God make it a reality in whatever way He chooses?
