Dream Great Dreams

It was a warm afternoon and we had stopped between Ciudad Valles and Rio Verde to cool off by the waterfalls at Tamasopo. I was walking with John Mariner in the shade of the huge tropical trees by the pool at the bottom of the falls. That morning we had left Tampico and the humid Gulf Coast and were now enjoying the more comfortable mountain air.

As we walked we talked about what we had seen and done since arriving in Mexico. The day before my wife, Helen, and I had made a commitment to start an English program at Ebenezer Seminary in Tampico. John asked me how I felt about it and I confessed that I was feeling that I might have gotten into something over my head. I wasn’t sure we could really do what we had committed to doing.

“I have no doubt you can do it,” John said.

He then said, “Someone once told me that we should dream dreams so big that the only way they can be achieved is if God is in them.”

I had not heard that before and must admit that his words made an impression on me. It was somewhat freeing to realize that we aren’t limited to what we know we can do, but if the Lord is in it we will succeed in spite of ourselves. If we don’t succeed it was not meant to be and we have learned something and need to move on to new dreams. Of course, if our dreams do succeed we must give credit where credit is due.

This comment by John changed the way I look at problems and dreams. It has been confirmed many times as Helen and I have taken on some missionary challenges that have amazed us with their impact on people.

I encourage you to dream great dreams and pray that the Lord is in them. He will not disappoint you.
