A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes
Posted: Friday, April 21
Verse of the day:
“It is pleasant to see dreams come true, but fools refuse to turn from evil to attain them.” (Proverbs 13:19 NLT)
This same phrase in the New American Standard Bible reads, “Desire realized is sweet to the soul.” The Message reads, “Souls who follow their hearts thrive.” Everyone loves attending a wedding, a graduation, or a retirement party. The feeling of accomplishment sets the tone of the day. The work is complete. The reward has come.
There’s a different tone when a C+ high school student declares they want to become a lawyer. Are they actually going to make it? We don’t bring gifts and eat cake; we taper our reaction. We wait and see. The reward is still so very far away. The journey has barely begun.
