Dreamicide

Things I’m finding that kill dreams:

  • Looking back on failure: Ugh.  Repentance is freedom.  Regret is suffocating.
  • Looking back on success: When I relive old victories, I limit God to what He has done and miss what He’s still longing to do.
  • Judgment: Nothing kills dream cells quite as quickly as pinning on the rule-enforcer badge.
  • Satisfaction: Not to be confused with ‘contentment’.  When I settle into status quo, I have to start protecting what I have, and that kind of life is a killer.  I once read a quote by someone who was somebody that went  something like, “What you really need to make a dream come true is a good plan and not quite enough time.”  Whenever I sink into “plenty of time” mode, my dreams fade to gray.
  • Anger: Anger/bitterness/resentment keeps me handcuffed to the here-and-now and out of the land where dreams live.
  • Good dreams...that swallow up the GREAT dreams…small ones that snuff out big ones….temporary dreams that hogtie the eternal ones.

Still dreaming of dreaming,

Bo
