In 1982, Disney World in Orlando, Florida finished work on the Epcot center. Walt Disney had recently passed away, so the Disney executives asked his wife to cut the ribbon and say a few words. When the MC called her up to the podium, he smiled and said, “Mrs. Disney, I just wish Walt could have seen this!”
She smiled and responded by saying, “He did.”
Dreams and visions are tricky things. They are often hard to nail down and can easily become a distant memory if we don’t give them their due attention. Yet, when embraced, such things spur us on to accomplish the assignments downloaded into our spirit by God.
Joel 2:28 talks about the times we live in—promising that young men and women will see visions and the old will dream dreams. I suppose I’m in the “dreamer” category now. Life is lived more at the pace of a camel than a cheetah, but I’m still moving. And I’m still headed in the direction of my dreams.
If you can’t identify your vision or dream, try answering the questions below:
- When you were little, what did you want to do when you grew up?
- When you left home, what were you going to do “someday”?
- When you sit and daydream, what do you daydream about?
- What brings joy to your heart?
- What dream does God keep nudging you about?
- List three things you would like to do before you move into a nursing home.
- Whose permission are you waiting for?
What dream or vision are you pursuing? Let us know in the comment section below. (Oh, in case you are wondering—I’m continuing to pursue my dream of being a writer. And to celebrate how far I’ve come, I’m having a Book Giveaway this week. Please consider entering to receive a free copy of my latest book—you have four days left!)
