Do you ever remember your dreams when you wake up? I rarely remember a dream. When I am asleep I am out and if I am dreaming I don’t wake up and remember them. Sometimes I feel as if that song from Garth Brooks, “Unanswered Prayers” is a good reminder for me of the dreams and things I have prayed for that have not come true. Sometimes a look back in the history books or in my case… an old journal will help remind you of where you have gotten to. Also a song like Garth Brooks’ one above can bring such clarity to why there are unanswered prayers in our lives.
Remembering where we were and what our hopes and dreams were just a few years ago can remind us of how far we have come forward in life. You reach a new dream that isn’t exactly what we imagined but is so much better than where we were in life. I am grateful for so many unanswered dreams, hopes and prayers. I am so glad I am where I am and I have been through what I have been through.
What hopes dreams and goals do you have for yourself? Keep striving for them even while sleeping and dreaming! May you always remember your dreams, hopes, goals and achieve them! If you cannot remember what those dreams are write them down so you can remember them a few years down the road. Also make sure you hug the ones you love everyday as they are your hopes/dreams and unanswered prayers from years ago.
