Let us dream

Psalm 126:1 "When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream."

Don't you love this verse?

Think upon where we once were.

Think about the Lord; take a quiet moment to think about how He took us out of where we once were and set our feet upon solid ground. If the Lord hadn't rescued us, we wouldn't have been able to dream. We should be in awe of having this chance at a purpose-filled existence when we did nothing to deserve it.

The Lord has given us good things and blessed us with abundance of life. The joy we experience as a result of this relationship with our Creator is so surreal at times that we feel as if we are dreaming, don't we?

On the other hand, because we each have a life filled with purpose, we are able to dream big dreams. We are able to have big hopes for our futures. Why do we have these hopes? We can have these hopes because our Lord has promised us certain things for the future and we can count on Him delivering on His promises.

We can keep dreaming because we know we can count on the One who gave Himself up for us. We can safely dream because we know whom we have believed.  We can dream of a future free from the worries and fears this world brings. Can you?
