I've lived many a day in my life waiting for the time when I would get to live the life of my dreams... I always seemed to think that life was around the corner. Now I look at everything God has given me and I smile because really, the life I am living is the life I dreamed of as a little girl.
No, trust me, I'm not living in a fantasy land, and there are totally days that I don't feel like I'm living a dream. Actually lots of them.
But that's when it struck me. I've been blessed with so very much, but in the end, that's not what matters. The fact that Jesus has fulfilled so many of my longings is not what's important.
I look around me and it hits me that when I really think about it, Jesus is the dream. Sure, I may have a dream family, friends, and job but take all that away and I still have a dream life.
Because I have a dream best Friend.
Living the life of my dreams isn't based on my circumstances and the people around me. I get to live my dream because Jesus is that dream and life with Him is the sweetest thing in the entire world. Tomorrow I could be stripped down to nothing at all. And that day could still be a day of living the dream, if He is really that dream.
It makes me wonder... How much of our lives do we live waiting for a dream life when the Dream is stood right by our side?
Maybe it's time to think about what and Who our dream is.
Maybe that would change the way we live every. single. day.
