Genesis 40:6 (NIV) And Joseph came in to them in the morning and looked at them, and saw that they were sad. 7 So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in the custody of his lord’s house, saying, “Why do you look so sad today?” 8 And they said to him, “We each have had a dream, and there is no interpreter of it.” So Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me, please.”
Do you have dreams that seem to never came true? Let’s take a look at some fresh inspiration and move forward with our lives and journey in the Lord.
Think about your great dreams that haven’t come true, we all have some. Yet our broken dreams are by no means the end of the story, because they hold important lessons within them.
• Maybe you were you told you had great talent, that you should go for it and make it to the top.
• Was your dream to be a star on stage or screen?
• Maybe your dream was to live a peaceful life teaching at a university with the security of tenure, writing a few books.
• Maybe you believed that you’d grow up, easily discover the person God chose for you, marry that person, make a lot of money, have great kids who were never a problem, and continue to live happily ever after.
If you have faith in Christ, your final destination is secure, I really believe this truth. Our life here on earth is a character-building journey full of opportunities, to dream, to connect, and to love one another, and when there is brokenness, to adjust your dream, to re-connect, and to continue loving one another. If there is anyone like myself that have some dreams that have not been realized yet; today’s message is designed for you to hold on a little while longer.
Quote Helen Keller “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.”
