Like tumbleweed drifting along dirt paths, the idea of dreams saunter around in my mind for days now. With it being the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. day, it’s common for our thoughts to drift back to his famous I have a dream speech. Although most of our dreams will not be captured and shared with the world as his, we each have a dream or dreams.

What dreams are stirring in your heart these days? Have you allowed the responsibilities of adulthood to lock away your child-like belief in the possibility of your dreams?
Food for Thought
Questions I have been pondering and perhaps you can shed some light.
- How does a dream differ from a vision?
- Does God still speak to His people in dreams? Many people in the Bible received instructions from God through dreams or visions.
- If dreams are still a communication method God uses do we give enough attention to the dreams we have?
- How do we distinguish God dreams from our desires or imaginations?
I stumbled across this passage of scripture from Job 33:14-18 just last night as I was reading a novel by Lisa Wingate.
For God does speak–now one way, now another— though man may not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn man from wrongdoing and keep him from pride, to preserve his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword. (NIV)
