I had a dream this morning in which I was experiencing some lack. I had to move back to a place where I thought I would never have to go back again . Have you ever felt like you had graduated and moved past certain places, and ways of life? Imagine having to go back. In my dream I did just that. I went back to live in a place that I once loved but thought I had moved way beyond. In my dream I could no longer live where I live, or on the same income level that I live now. In spite of this. I was some what happy, but I did have some concerns for the safety of myself and my family.
When I awakened from my dream I realized many things in a profound way. I know that these realizations may not sound like anything new, but often we think we understand some things, and maybe we do. And then something hits us and we see that yes we did understand before, but now we understand much more. These are my realizations.
I need to be more humble and not ever judge anyone. We are all doing the best we can with what we have and what we understand.
I must remember that all I have comes from God. This includes all my ideas and hard work, all the opportunities and information I get. At times I give myself way too much credit.
If I want to be a better instrument of the eternal, I must truly let go of how I am perceived. I can’t worry about what anyone thinks of me as I carry out my missions. After all, once again, I am simply someone who is striving to understand and be used by God in all areas of my life. And the mission is what is truly important.
I am truly blessed and have been given so much. My home, my wife, my family, my business, my health, my connection with the eternal, I could go on and on, I must appreciate all I have.
