As the summer moves along you may be saying, “It’s been a long hot summer and I am bored!” Or you may be saying, “this summer is flying by – I can’t believe school starts in a few weeks!” Whichever it is for you, I hope you can get a little “hammock time” yet this summer. A nice cold drink, a shady spot and quiet spot can afford some great dreams. Dream a little about how you might grow in faith and service in your Christian life. God says through the prophet Joel, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.” Joel 2:28
Do you have spiritual dreams for yourself or your family? How about for your congregation? We still have the freedom to dream – even dream big! See if you can catch a little “hammock time” during these “Dog Days.” If you fall asleep and wake up without dreaming, you may need to learn to dream with your eyes open!
