As children we are told to reach for the stars, to dream big. Our parents tell us we can be anything we want to be. We dream of being firefighters, doctors, princesses, and knights. We daydream all day about what it will be like to get big.
Why does this stop? Why when we get older do we stop dreaming? Why are we constantly told to come back to reality?
No, I don't think we should still be playing dress up and acting like a princess (unless of course that's REALLY what you aspire to do). I think our dreams should change as we do. Being in ministry, my husband and I like to dream big for what is ahead for us and new and better ways to reach people. We don't like being tied down to "standards" and the "way things should be done". I don't think that's how Christ calls us to dream and to live.
Keep dreaming big. Keep reaching for the stars! We CAN change the world for the better.
Ok, I'm going to find my princess crown.
