As I sat ringing in the New Year, I marveled at how quickly the old one passed. I vividly remember doing that exact same thing and it seemed like just yesterday. Well not exactly yesterday, but the recollection was fresh in my mind. Now you have to understand that I have a hard time remembering what I ate for breakfast two days ago…but this I remembered.

And as I sat ruminating over the wisps of hopes, or prayers for others, or even the “to-do” items I was compiling for myself to complete in the new year, it occurred to me that the reason I remembered last year so clearly was because those dreams were my action items for the year…the things I wanted to accomplish…the kind of things dreams are made of.

So as each of you starts this year fresh…with a clean board in front of you, I urge you to write on it your dreams. Not resolutions…those hard things that you start out the year forcing yourself to do…but dreams…the things that you would speak into being for yourself.

Remember the Lord tells us to Ask. Seek. And Knock, and then to believe as though you have them, until they come into being.

Blessings to all…and Happy New Year. May all your dreams come true!
