Wishes and Dreams
Posted on 07/02/12
Excerpted from One-Minute with God by Hope Lyda
I’ve closed my eyes to blow out many candles and have made many wishes. Those wishes became dreams; some eventually turned into the stepping stones of goals. I walk forward with my sights set on how I’d like life to be.
Our wishes and dreams are important. They often rise up to lead us toward our true calling and purpose. But when our hope is grounded in the security of God’s faithfulness, we can do more than make a wish, we can lift up a prayer and know that it is heard.
God, reveal to me those dreams that are of your plan and purpose for me. Thank you for those moments when I feel the wonder of a future hope. I know that the wishes that do come true are reflections of your brilliant life-giving light.
