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!
