I wonder if many people give weight to their dreams anymore.
Or if we are too jaded and cynical because of the world around us to even dare to dream. And then furthermore, to actually pursue those dreams.
I can say that my dreams have changed over the years. Where I once dreamt of things like wealth and living comfortably and having a nice car, nowadays, I dream more about what kind of legacy I’m leaving for my children.
Am I giving them the encouragement to chase their dreams?
Am I providing them the right environment to dream?
Do they have a good foundation to fall back on when their dreams don’t come true? And then to dream new dreams?
As many of you know, I’m a single momma to two amazing kids. While this road has been challenging and rewarding, I also dream about becoming a wife. Not just any wife, either.
No, I want to aspire to be the woman/wife/mother that Proverbs 31 describes. Yes, I know it’s a long shot, but hey, a girl can dream, right?
I dream of being the wife that makes her husband glad to come home.
I dream of being the mother that her kids know is their safe haven.
I dream of being the woman that inspires other women to never give up.
But mostly, I dream of being the daughter of the King that He would have me to be.
I dream of living a life that gives Him the glory and the praise.
Even if it means re-evaluating my dreams.
Until next time…dream on, dreamer.
