Dreams are great things. They push us, prod us, exhilarate us, give us hope for a brighter future.
They also frustrate us to no end, especially when we have a dream, a desire, a longing, an aching — for years and years and years — but despite how much we work toward it, pray about it, give it back to God in case we’re worshiping it too much — it doesn’t happen.
But it also doesn’t go away.
Does this strike something deep inside you?
Surprisingly, not all people understand the concept of a long-term, chronic desire, ache, dream, and when they don’t, they can be frustrating for people who possess one of these long-term desires. If you, however, are part of the club of people who live in limbo-land — adequately functioning in day to day life, but always with that dream you’re working toward and praying about — then please follow the link to Are Your Dreams — and Life — in Perpetual Limbo? at my Commonsense Christianity column, BeliefNet.
