I woke up today to a beautiful yet heart-wrenching post at https://cristianmihai.net/2018/09/24/these-dreams-of-mine/#comment-103822

Heart wrenching because it’s true. Too true for my spirit to interpret.  Too true for my guts to like. What would I die for? But, more importantly,  what would I live for?

So many dreams swirl inside me. So many things I want to do. So, why am I not doing them?

Is it God’s perfect timing?

Is it lazyness?

Is it just not what I’m suppose to be doing?

The psalmist says “Take delight in the Lord , and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4 NIV)

I have many desires. To tour the United States in an RV. To sing and play guitar.  To write the many novels I have pent up inside of me.

And, YES! One day I will do these things that bring me joy.  One day, I’ll live my dream life every day and not just sit here and talk about it.  One day, I’ll write that blog post that says, ” Here I am! I did it!”

But, for today,  I’ll clean out litter boxes and wash more dishes. But, come to think of it,  I’ll be doing that then, too. Why? Because I love my cats,  and I have to eat. And, because life is life regardless of if you’re living your dreams or not.

What are your dreams for your life? Are you living them? Praise God if you are! And, if not, let’s pray today about how we can get a little closer to that burning desire God has placed in our hearts.

And, live.
