Big Dream

Dream-BigAt this point in time it is impossible to say, with any degree of certitude, who will eventually become the forty-fifth president of the United States of America or how history will judge the new president. But this much we can safely say: The person who will take the oath of office on January 20, 2017 will have done so because he/she dared to imagine the impossible.

Likewise, each of us has tremendous power in our imaginations. Our imaginations are the fuel cells of our lives. Without imagination we will forever live shriveled up lives tethered to the here and now. As kids our imaginations are super-sized; we believe that the sky and beyond is within our grasp.  But the older we grow, our imaginations seem to lose their power and resiliency in direct proportion to number of candles on our birthday cakes.  That does not have to happen.

The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 (NLT) “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

Our Founding Fathers had faith in a dream – a BIG DREAM. On the surface, initially their dream may have seemed more like a fairy tale. But it became much more. It morphed into reality! Faith always starts with the way you look at things. It is a God given ability.  The lesson for all of us in this election year is to never let anybody or anything downsize you dreams or your imagination. Dream big; dream the impossible. Keep the faith no matter what.
