Dreams. We all have them, some come true and others do not. There was a time during my college experience when I dreamed I would become a doctor. That did not happen. When I realized that my dream would not become a reality I felt sad and disappointed in myself and lost concerning my future.
Where do we go when our dreams do not become realities and when we are confronted with our limitations and disappointments? I believe we should look to Jesus and seek a new way forward, His way forward. The great thing about being a Christian is that while we live, there is always a second chance. God is the God of second chances and new directions. “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21 NIV
