We all have dreams and aspirations. Some of them are bigger than others. Some are related to writing, while others aren’t. Most of us who aren’t yet published have a dream to become so – whether it’s in a magazine, a journal, a short story or poetry collection, or our own book.

We have dreams for personal growth – to become better friends, siblings, spouses, church members. We dream of vacations in Hawaii, the top of the New York Times bestseller list, and self-cleaning houses (yeah- that’s MY big one :::roll::: ).

We’re not the only ones with dreams, of course. In fact, forty-eight years ago this week, Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech.

He dreamed of equality for all–that all of God’s children would be treated the same no matter the color of their skin. And he died for his dream.

Though his dream is not a reality, it is closer, and it is certainly a dream inspired by His Word.

Sometimes we let go of our dreams – or we dream too small. Remember – if it’s a God-sized dream, with prayer behind it, there is no need to let go. Whether your dream is related to your writing career, your family, your walk with Christ or something else, hold on…until the Lord tells you to grab another dream.

What are your dreams? Have you had any come true? What is your greatest writing dream?
