*Choice 5 of 10 in the Take Back Your Life Blog Series
My former professor, mentor, and friend, the late Dr. Howard Hendricks warned, "When your memories are more exciting than your dreams, you’ve begun to die.”
How often do you limit your dreams by setting standards based on your best memories? I often find myself happy to simply maintain and hold my ground. My pride says, “I’m good enough.” But according to Hendricks, that’s not dreaming, that’s dying! God wants my dreams to always be more exciting than my memories.
So think bigger, God-sized dreams. Think beyond your own capabilities, and with patience and grace, rely on God’s strength and ability to carry you through.
God’s dream for every one of us is to remake us into new creatures, new creations of grace, shaped into His image. God has no desire to wait until heaven to fix our lives and us. He wants the transformation to start now!
So where do you start? What makes a good dream? Here are some guidelines to help you as your set your goals.
