The speech became famous when Dr. Martin Luther King used it in 1962. I have read, re-read and quoted parts of the speech for years, always crediting the original author. I learned early on that when I use quotes, which I do most every article, to legally give the author’s name. It really is the only fair way to use the child of someone else’s pen.
As we live life, we come to periods where about all we have is a dream or dreams of something better to keep us going, therefore the phrase, “I have a dream” is powerful beyond comprehension.
It is said of the Father of the Faithful, Abraham, that had a dream as expressed here:
Hebrews 11:10 “for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”
Abraham spent most his life living in tents wandering about the land. Yet we are assured that deep in his heart lay the golden dream of something better. It’s ok to dream big about something that sets your spirit ablaze with hope. It is also helpful to understand the importance of patience as you march upward toward the prize. One of my all-time favorite writers put it like this:
“Sometimes we have the dream but we are not ourselves ready for the dream. We have to grow to meet it.” Louis L'Amour.
Refuse to let the waiting kill your dream!
