What Unfulfilled Dream is Most on Your Mind Right Now?
Unfulfilled dreams – I wonder if life ever reaches a point where all your dreams are fulfilled. Or is it more like a TBR pile (a “to be read” pile) of books, that no matter how many you have you’re always adding more, knowing you’ll never actually reach the end of it. To be clear I don’t mean that in a depressing way, but in an way that means, as we continue to grow as humans we continue to have dreams both big and small.
I don’t know if I have one specific dream right now that has yet to be reached. Are there things I still want to do? See? Try? Absolutely. I always have a running list. Many of these take time and pieces are out of my control. Thankfully, just this week, I came, once again, across the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000.
After everyone had their fill, John writes: “When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.” John 6:12-13 NIV
A story and verses I’ve read hundred of times, but it hit me this week, as I was reading it, that this is what Jesus does. He turns nothing into abundance. And for that I am so thankful.
