But then we grow up, trained for the future we want and then the reality of the world as it is puts the brakes on our plan. Yes, we can overcome it, but it will always be different and we may always wonder what it would have been like otherwise. For some, an unexpected illness interferes, for others it was war, a never ending problem that changes the course of many lives, maybe it was falling in love and unplanned parenthood, things that have always been commonplace. So, we labor on and do become a success but never quite lived up to those dreams.
So what? After all, there is something attainable to us all, something that can dramatically change our lives and put us on a path to a result that is greater than imaginable. And the course to that end is reachable if we just open our hearts and let Him in. I'm talking about the Holy Spirit, folks, that resides inside us. It is waiting hopefully for us to open that heart and let Him in, for He can guide us to "get the log out of our eyes" and see the reality of the Living God, a God who created us in His own image. When we let the Holy Spirit in to work his wonders through us, we will see the reality of the sin that we all live in daily and be aware that only our believing by faith in our Lord and Savior can save us from the darkness of eternal death. When we commit to being a believer and work as hard as we can to overcome the temptations of the world by putting Him first, all other things become manageable and we can live in peace within ourselves. We may never reach those childhood dreams, but we will meet a future when this life is done which we could never even have dreamed of. It will be indescribably greater.
Think about it. What could be greater than living forever in a most wondrous place with Our Lord and Savior every day. So, live your life with hard work and some good times, but turn it over to God and let Him guide your every step. You'll find joy, personal peace and will be on the road to the highest level of greatness attainable and it's all a gift from a loving God.
