Do You Remember When?

Do you remember when you first had the dream?  The dream of something greater than your could imagine? So great than you could barely comprehend what it meant at all, much less what it truly meant?

Do you remember when it first went wrong?  Was it when you shared the dream?  Was it when you got the robe?  Was it when you were thrown in the pit?  Was it when you were sold into slavery?

Do you remember what it felt like to feel safe?  To be bought by a kind soldier and his wife?  To be entrusted with the household.  To pick yourself up from nothing and be back on the path to success?  To  have another dream perhaps?

Do you remember when it went wrong again?  Did you notice when she first began to take notice of you?  Did she begin to flirt with you?  Did you notice her gaze?  Did you expect her to invite you into her intimacy?  Did you expect to be charged with taking advantage of her?

Do you remember what it was like to be in jail?  To be a model prisoner?  To gain some power and influence in jail?  To interpret the dreams?  To have hopes to get out?  To wait and wait and wait to be remembered?  To be picked?  To interpret HIS dream?

Do you remember what it was like to rise to power?  To be given the power of a king?  To hold a nation’s life and death in your hands?  To save millions of lives?  To save the lives of other countries?

Do you remember what it was like to see them enter?  To see them bow before you?  To see your father again, kneeling in front of you?  To see your dream brought to fruition?

*****

Do you remember thinking God was through with you?  That your life was over?  That you were stalled forever?  That you were topped out?  That there was nowhere to turn, nowhere to go?

Do you remember long ago what you wanted to be?  Do you remember how you got where you are?  Do you remember where you want to go?

Do you remember your dream?

    Been reading the story of Joseph the past two days in my Bible reading. What a phenomenal story.

      Bill, I wonder if he got frustrated between the time he had his dream and the time the dream was reLized.

    This life is a journey. Sometimes God takes us through difficult times. Not to cause pain, rather, to make us stronger and more prepared for something yet to come. May we, like Joseph, never forget the dream God has given each of us.

    I’m not even sure what a Daydream Believer is, but that’s what I thought as I read this. I’m not sure of the meaning, but I’m pretty sure it describes who I am.
