Have you lost your dreams? Dreams are the seeds that lived in your heart at one point in your life. Pastor Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding California says, “that every dream is born of God.” God the creator loves to dream. He created the heavens and the earth from His dreams. He created you in His image and gave you the capacity to dream.
Your dreams are planted in your soul, your mind, your inner being. They grow as you water them by faith and hope. The more you believe your dreams the more your dreams grow. When you stop watering your dreams they stop growing, they wither, they die.
When your dreams no longer direct your life they are lost. They still exist in your soul but they no longer speak to you. They are no longer the impetus of your progress through life. Your dreams may be buried but they are not destroyed. They can live again.
Stage two in the creative awakening is the rediscovery of your dreams. This sometimes happens when something traumatic or life changing happens in your life. Stage two happened for me after my mother died in 2003 and I took a look at my life. I asked myself the question, “If you died now have you done everything that you were born to do?” I knew that I had not. I had buried my dream of writing and being a published author from my childhood.
I rediscovered my lost dream in 2004 and started to write what became my first published book. Now I’m living other dreams. That one buried dream has released many other dreams.
It’s time to dig up old dreams. It’s time to breath life in what you buried. It’s time to be extraordinary instead of mediocre.
Your dreams are only lost because you packed them away in the attic of your mind. It’s time to starting digging those dreams out of your mind. Your life needs those dreams, your family needs those dreams. Your future needs those dreams.
What dreams have you buried? What dreams are you rediscovering? When you rediscover lost dreams you are in a creative awakening. It’s time to wake up.
