“Realists know where they are going. Dreamers have already been there. ” ~~ Robert Orben
I came across the above quote of Robert Orben and it stood out to me as being profound. To dream, to REALLY dream against all odds and not give up, takes faith. To believe that dreams can happen means you can already see it as if you have been there before.
When someone has a dream, we have a choice to either speak life or death to their dream. Joseph had dreams and his brothers attempted to kill it. But God was the author of the dream so it couldn’t die. If God has birthed a dream within someone’s heart, let’s roll up our sleeves, look them in the face and ask, “Can I run along beside you to help build this dream?”
Disappointment. Hurt. Betrayal. Humiliation. Competition. Comparison. These are all able to kill dreams.
Affirmation. Love. Acceptance. Believing in someone. These all breathe life into the dreams people carry within the heart.
Let’s take the dream journey with people today. Let’s speak life until we see their dreams take flight. Agree with the dream God paints for yourself and for others. Speak it forth for the sake of others.
