Keep On Dreaming…

Posted on September 18, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

There’s a country song out now by the Eli Young Band that says, “Keep on dreaming, even if it breaks your heart.” The song talks about a guy who began dreaming of being a musician when he was a little boy. But that line is a proclamation of encouragement to anyone with any kind of dream. I can’t get it out of my head. It is one of those lines that is going to become a life motto! 🙂 Because to continue pursuing a dream until you reach it will involve some heartache. For me, with a dream of being a writer, this means rejection letter after rejection letter before I get published. The line from that song reminds me not to give up. The heartache is part of the process of reaching a dream. And if it’s really your dream, you should hold onto it with everything you have and it’s worth every bit of the hurt.

Abraham in the Bible knew all about this. He and his wife, Sarah, had dreamed of having a child. But there they were, past child-bearing years with still no children. And then God breathed new life into that dream and promised them not only a child, but descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky! Yet even after God made that promise, there still seemed to be no child in sight. Imagine the heartache then. Though Abraham struggled with this, he held on to his faith in God, and God fulfilled his promise and Abraham’s dream with the birth of Isaac.

Abraham was a man who kept on dreaming, even though it broke his heart. Except the Bible puts it this way: “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, ‘So shall your offspring be.’Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.” Romans 4:18-19
