Shattered Dreams 

Have you ever had this big dream? Maybe you wanted to be a Dr. or a teacher when you were older. Maybe you wanted to be an astronaut…or maybe you wanted to be a mommy and daddy. 
I remember finding out we were pregnant with baby #4 this past summer. We were so excited. I have always dreamed of having a big family. 

And I’ve always dreamed of growing our family through adoption (which with Gods grace we will). We were making plans on having another child. We were making arrangements with who would share rooms. What would we have? What will he/she be like? What will life be like with our growing family?  

And then, we as parents, dream for our children. What will they become? Where will God take them? Where will they live? 

But what happens when those dreams shatter? Maybe your child went home to be with the Lord. Maybe a tragic accident. Maybe life threw a curve ball and you watched as all your dreams fell all around you. 

What then? 

We pray asking, even begging, God to take this cup from us. We pray asking Him to move the mountains. But sometimes we don’t see those mountains moving. We sometimes feel we are all alone with our dreams all in pieces. 

But what if we could truly understand that God has us right where we belong. He goes before us. There isn’t a day He hasn’t seen. He is there building our dreams back. I have to remind myself daily His plans His dreams are way bigger than I could ever imagine. Even though it hurts when our dreams shatter…may we always yearn for His ways! 

What dreams do you have to lay at His feet? What dreams are shattered? I’m currently fighting a dream that is being shattered…and I’m trying to hold on knowing God has already seen my days and His Dream is bigger than my wildest dreams! 

What dreams do you need to lay at the feet of Jesus? 

Deuteronomy 31:8 

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
