"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing." ~ Jesus in John 15:5

Beyond fallin’ there’s hope. Beyond a face-plant and failing, real life can still be found.

Been talkin’ with a guy who got so caught up in what he was doin’ that he crashed.

How caught up have you gotten? What’s been more important to you.. that dream, that job, that goal.. or the One who first inspired it all–the Fulfiller of dreams? Or.. do you have one that he did not inspire?

It’s good to make sure. Was it a so called dream.. from Him? And if it was…you know He’s still far better than that dream or blessing don’t you?

“Hey, your dream is out there and we’ll help you find it” said an investment company.

Why do so many Americans live for their dreams? In the Bible I don’t see people living for "their dream." I see people that had some wild dreams that shook em. Not every dream is from God or is good. Met people who go to classes weekly to learn to interpret their every dream thinking they're all from God. Stop that. That's just weird.. and not biblical. Me knows some are from spicy tacos.  

What happens when our dreams die, when they don’t align with God’s will for our lives? Might be gone forever, or might come back later after we get our priorities back in order.

“He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God only.” ~ C.S. Lewis

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.” ~ Isaiah 55:8

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” ~ Jesus

He who has God and many nice things.. say a new shiny car, a big house, a wonderful healthy marriage, an impacting ministry that’s sound.. doesn’t really have more than he who has God only.

Have God. Let God have all of you. God is enough–He is my all in all. Never let me down. Ask Him to meet your needs. He can see your heart, knows what you want, and sure… He is able to resurrect any dead dreams.

So live for Him not your dream–put your hope in Him alone. If you get too busy serving Jesus–working for that dream where you don’t have time for the dream-Giver.. then you’ve simply gotten too busy.

One sign that you’re in the right place with the Lord.. it bears fruit. Changed lives! He causes growth.

But even with that joy.. Christ is by far the best of it all still. He beats all ministry dreams, opportunities, other kinda dreams, and blessings.
