We are people of dreams, we grow up wanting to becoming heroes. Someone that society can look up to. We would like to champion the cause of the poor the homeless and the disenfranchised. Your family might have made a covenant; you would be the great hero they had hoped to become. A dream they have been long waiting to see fulfilled; they have lived the disappointment and now all eyes are placed on you. You were their hopes and dreams but alas their hopes have all but faded away.
Gods’ word said, without a vision the people perish. Prov.29: 18. What is vision you? Visions are dreams locked up inside our hearts waiting to be released. (This is my personal interpretation base on my opinion.) While it is important to dream, be careful to follow those dreams if they are going to lead us to a path of success. Dreams are important driving force that propels us to the next level of life experiences.
I must admit that in our quest for fulfillment, we are faced with many frustrating moment. With the hope for self-fulfillment, self-awareness and self-gratification, we have lost what it means to be a hero and a leader. We have sold morality for economic privileges. We have given up the dreams of what was once important to us. What once grab our attention, the things for which our heart and soul craved. We progress through time and have now come of age to see our dreams come to pass: We have lost our dignity as producers in the work force and have succumbed to the stresses of eroded humanity and have lost our ideals to immoral, illegal, unethical or irresponsible actions. Every day we hear about it, someone is reaping from the seeds they have sown. They are unwilling to be identified because now their harvest has blossomed while they are refusing to reap their crop of indignity!
In this world, we live, we are progressing in technology but we are taking a backward turn in morality and spirituality. Our young people have become fathers and mothers but could only be qualify as children themselves. They are not equipped with the tools, the moral fiber and daring courage to stand up to society and give direction to the ones they help to bring into this world. Frustration has cause them not to want to dream. The result is a life of crime, hopelessness and now we are a decadence society. If we fail to dream, we are not fulfilling our God given responsibility, we are not living the life of success that God has ordained for humanity.
I once heard someone make this remark, “I have been down so many times, I don’t even think of getting up.” What are we living for, what are our hopes and aspiration? We cannot allow the pressures of society to guide us through a life of hopelessness. Let us turn our situation around by giving God first place in our lives; only then we can find the hope to dream again. People of the twenty first century, let us take up the torch of responsibility and run with dignity against the race of injustice, inequality and misfortune! God has given us a life filled with hopes and dreams. We must reach out and take hold of the promises He has left us. Those promises will lead us to live fulfilled lives with His blessings ever abounding in our path. Live the dream, you can make it to the next level in this life!
