Dreams, Goals and Purpose

When dreams are shattered the cliché thing to say is, “I believe there’s a reason for everything.” There’s a lot of truth in that. God is certainly at work in our shattered dreams. Romans 8:28 says “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Where I think we sometimes get off track is in trying to figure out God’s reasons for everything that happens. We certainly should pray and seek to understand what God might be doing, but the truth is we may not be able to see what God was doing for many years. And with some situations, we just won’t know the reason this side of heaven. It’s important to accept that we won’t understand everything God is doing and trust in his character – his love, his kindness, his faithfulness. When we trust in his character, we choose to believe that God is up to something good even in the midst of our shattered dreams.

Never allow someone to steal your dreams or desires. We need to always focus and ignore the nay sayers.
