I once saw someone who I haven't seen in years and upon seeing them I asked them how they were doing? They replied that they are living the dream. Nowadays to say living the dream may mean the opposite while to others it is a reality. To many people living the dream seems impossible though. And can you blame them? Their lives didn't go as planned and things are not going their way. But the fact remains that deep down in each of us lies dreams. Dreams to achieve incredible things. Dreams to be more than what others say we are. People love to put limits on others and we even put limits on ourselves so many people never see the dream come true.
I think that a lot of people like to dream in the night because you can do things that defy the natural laws or defies what seems to be your life. It is the same for our dreams within us, we tend to want to dream things that defy the natural possibilities of our lives. Things that defy how it looks like our life will play out. It is possible to achieve the impossible, but you have to remove the limits that this world and others have put on you. You must even remove the limits you put on yourself. You have to believe there isn't much difference between the dream world and the real world.
In the Bible God made Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve were naked for a long time and it didn't affect them or bother them. Then when they ate from the tree of knowledge and sinned, they were ashamed of their nakedness and tried to cover themselves. Gods reply was "who told you, you were naked?" Everything was great till they gained the knowledge that they were naked. In the same way we could very well accomplish our dreams if we didn't have the knowledge or the limits that said it is not possible for us or that we can't do that.
Once a person believes something or has a belief, you can't tell them any different and they can't see anything different no matter how much proof there is that their belief isn't true. They only see what they limit themselves to see. If you only limit yourself to see certain things it will never manifest in your life. In a dream you can do anything but the minute you start to wake up the dream is over. Why is it over? Because you are entering another reality or what you perceive as reality. That reality that you leave the dream world and awake to has laws and limits. Or at least that is what you perceive and have come to believe. So many people don't believe in miracles because they think nothing can break the laws of nature. They perceive it as impossible. Even if a miracle were to take place, they wouldn't see it as such. What we see and the way we see things becomes our reality.
Whatever means you learned that you couldn't do this or that is not important, but what is important is that you have that set limit and you will not manifest the impossible. You must take a leap and settle it in your heart that your limit you believe isn't reality. You have to believe that the dream world and this world come together to manifest things. Who are you really? What do you see yourself doing deep down? These things are more reality than the limits the natural world has you believing. You can do the impossible, you just need to believe it is impossible you won't achieve it.
There are some people that can do extraordinary things, I have seen it. If you have an internet connection you can see it also. The internet and television are flooded with them. While the bar is getting set higher and higher for people to make it with their gifts and talents, because of all the people out there who are gifted it is still important to do what you are gifted to do no matter who thinks it has value or not. Most of our talents and giftings are God-given and God wants to see us step out and use them to make the world a better place. So, one can say it is each person's calling to use the gifts God gave them.
There are times when justice seems to prevail, times if your due a reward you get it. But it's not always like that. Sometimes life just isn't fair. The Bible says, "I have seen something else under the sun. The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant, or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11 It says that that the fastest don't always win the race or the strongest the battle. This is true in so many situations. It shouldn't be that way though it should only be fair that they do win the race and the battle.
I recently read an article about a pastor who said he was leaving Christianity because it didn't work for him. The article was about how God didn't work in his marriage and how Christians were mean. I think it also mentioned how God didn't seem to bless him with material things. While reading it I discovered that he was really upset that his congregation didn't approve of the affair he was having with a married woman. While I can't relate to having affairs with married women I can relate to how sometimes it seems as if Christianity isn't working.
