There is a truth associated with the pursuit of dreams than must be factored into the planning and persistence toward dreams. Notice what the man given tons of credit for our space program had to say about this essential part of achievement:
“When old dreams die, new ones come to take their place. God pity a one-dream man.” Dr. Robert H. Goddard, Father of the Space Program.
In a lecture in the 1920’s Dr. Goddard stated that thrust was impossible in a vacuum, with the back thought that space, being a vacuum, prohibited any force to move a foreign object such a space vehicle. He was publicly ridiculed and in time adjusted his thinking, and well, you know the rest of the story.
Often, along the journey of realizing your dream, adjustments must take place, sometimes, so much so, that the achieved dream hardly resembles the initial impression. Think about, we landed on the moon, a creation long impossible dream, because we experimented on the dream with the knowledge we had. As we learned what did and did not work, added the positive knowledge to the dream and we now have photos of American Astronauts walking on the moon.
The same dynamic can be seen in all the accomplishments of our nation, our industry, family and certainly the field of sports.
Impossible dreams will demand adjustments, as our politicos in Washington are learning, with much embarrassment I might add. (Note the hidden word).
In our daily walk with Jesus we find that adjustment to His pace is constant, for He adjusts His pace to our need at the time and the events that are taking place in our life. He adjusts to our need, and we in turn must adjust to His solutions. Simple, isn’t it. Go ahead and give it serious effort and you will be amazed at your progress.
Psalm 23:3 “He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.”
