Maybe you have heard it this week. Maybe you have said it.
Someone asks how you’re doing. How do you respond? “Living the dream!!!” is often the answer.
That’s awesome, isn’t it. So many people who you run into answer back that their life is the dream they have always wanted.
Are that many people really living the dream? I don’t think so.
It’s become a cliché’, like so many other sayings. People say living the dream just give the facade that their lives are exactly like they have always wanted. They want to give the perception that their lives are awesome and couldn’t be better.
How many people are really there?
I don’t think that many.
Very few people are living the dream. If so, there wouldn’t be so much divorce. If so, there wouldn’t be so much of pursuit of happiness in things that don’t really matter.
Stop living a cliché’.
Stop living the dream.
Where is your dream really coming from?
In the days when Samuel was young and serving the Lord, word from the Lord and visions were rare and infrequent.
I think it is that way today. Why? Because most people aren’t pursuing God through Christ.
They don’t know Him.
They don’t believe in Him.
They don’t trust Him.
They aren’t turning to the Source.
They may say they are living the dream, but they don’t even know the Dream-Giver.
They want to live the dream, but He wants to give them the Dream.
My prayer is that they their eyes will open and they will see the One who can truly give them the Dream.
Then they really can live the Dream.
Let’s make sure that we are.
Are you living the Dream?
