Something to think about. Do you have a dream? Not a God-given Vision but a personal dream?
The dog was running along a clearly defined road when the bird swept down and began to hover with little chirping noises just above her head. It was an exciting game and she began to chase. The bird was enticing and kept the dog following along the roadway. Right at the end the bird changed direction and led the dog into the bush. The dog followed and I could hear far in the distance the sounds of the chase through the scrub. I called and called but there was no response. The dog followed deep into rough and relative dangerous terrain.
Yes eventually she did return. Tired, bedraggled and disappointed but even this animal was relieved when she found herself once more on the easily identified pathway. The bird returned to tease the dog with triumphant little darting calls as we returned to the car.
The thought that came to me was this. May we all ponder on it today. It is great to have a personal DREAM. We should follow it . It is the stuff of life but………..if we believe in a Higher Purpose for our end journey we also need to take the time to
Does our DREAM still align with the Will of God? Is the pathway to follow Him although indistinct, biblically sound. Is beguiling Deception having any part in the enticement to deviate?
Thoughts to think upon.
Shine a Light for Him today.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
