Dreaming the Dream




Dreaming big dreams about the future is easy for kids. The only thing standing in the way is time. Kid’s dreams are not about skills, or opportunities, or even practicality. Those things come much later. 


My grandson hopes to be professional soccer player when he grows up. This week, a small piece of his dream came true when his Boys and Girls Club was invited to participate in pre-game activities with the Seattle Sounders Football Club. 

He got to suit up in a real jersey and walk on the field with a real pro player. Imagine a young soccer player looking up to who he hopes to be one day.

If you haven’t taken the time to talk to a child about their future dreams—you should. 

They believe. As we get older we sometimes forget that dreams fuel our hopes—and that's something we all need.




So, do you still dream? Or have you left those childhood thoughts behind? Spending time with children will inspire you to believe again. We’re never too old to dream, even if our dreams change over time. All we need are bigger thoughts, a heart full of hope, and willingness to work for the dream. 


Our great desire is that each of you keep up your eagerness to the end, so that the things you hope for will come true. Hebrews 6:11
