He Makes My Dreams Come True

Dreams. I always have them.

I’ve had dreams for my life when I was a little girl.

I had dreams for my life as a young newlywed, and a brand new mommy.

I have dreams as I near the empty nest.

I have dreams that may seem selfish to others, and I have dreams that are spiritual desires in my life, and in the lives of those I love.

So, so many dreams and wishes that come and go in a life.

So many unanswered prayers.  Some of which I will probably always hold the question, “why” in my soul, for. And for others – I am so deeply, deeply thankful that the Lord did not, and does not, answer them.

For He spared me deep heartache.

Every life has a path. It’s easier to see that path when we turn our heads backwards; than it is to see the direction the path is going, as we face frontwards.

It’s easier to see the answers. It’s easier to see when we stepped off and went our own way – only to waste time and end up where we were supposed to go in the first place.

It’s easier to see the blessings. The ‘thank-you’s.’ It’s easy to forget those blessings, too. But still, they sit there – waiting for us to turn around and see them. To acknowledge.

To remember.

Dreams. Wishes. They DO come true.  As you turn around, do you see them? Are you reminded?

Look. Look there to the left of your path. Do you see that moment when you were thankful for answered prayer? And to the right…. Do you remember the moment you were stunned at something you thought would never happen?

Do you remember that dream you had that someone would do something nice for you? Or the one that you never spoke out loud?  Do you remember the medical test you were worried about? The one that came back, “all clear?”

So many answers. Do you see them now?

God does that. God is there.  He IS answering your heart’s cries. He IS making your dreams come true.

One here. One there.

Some little. Some big.

Turn around. Remember. See them.

And thank Him again.
