Dream Big!

By Hazel Holland

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and
 not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:31

The only way to blow bubbles and enjoy their weightless beauty is to let them go wherever the wind takes them.  As a child I remember trying to "guide" a bubble in the direction I wanted it to fly.  Of course my  "help" only made it burst and disappear.

Our childish dreams are often like soap bubbles, aren't they?  We imagine and pretend and create all sorts of wonderful things in our little minds, never believing for a moment that we can't make them happen. 

But now as adults who live in the real world, we're more realistic and down to earth.  We see things differently than when we were children...  Our dreams of yesterday are but fleeting memories of the good times we had when the world seemed a lot more simple.

But what about our lives today in the realm of the Spirit?  Is it safe for us to dream big and allow Him to carry us in the direction He wants us to go?  If our hope is in God, can we soar high and be the eagles He intended for us to be?
