One of my all time favorite songs is titled, The Quest, popularly known as The Impossible Dream. Call it what you will it has the power to bring a tear, even a renewed commitment to your dream of whatever its nature. I often tie the song to the taunt of Joseph’s jealous brothers, “What will this dreamer say.”
I talk with folks regularly who assure me that they have a dream, and they make the pronouncement with all the zeal of a prisoner in solitary confinement looking toward a bowl of three day old oatmeal. It’s better than a 50/50 bet that the dream will never materialize. When you vividly visualize your dream, if it doesn’t bring a smile, a tear, a few goose bumps, along with a special thrill to your heart, walk away and get a job.
If, on the other hand, the dream does all of the above when locked onto; keep on dreaming and pressing on the upward way toward your dream. Never give up.
"Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” Earl Nightingale
One of the greatest speeches of the last century, perhaps of all time, “I Have a Dream,” paved the way for the legal fulfillment of its content. We all know it takes more than a pen stroke. And yet, Acts 2:17, “… and your old men shall dream dreams.”
