It doesn’t make sense, but often a dream must die before it truly can be resurrected.
I don’t understand Gods ways, he often confuses me…
Why must we often let go, before a dream can come into reality.
Have you found this in your life?
The bible says for us to gain our life we must loose it.
Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle. Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: jesus of nazareth, the king of the jews. Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.” Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.” When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”
This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said,
“They divided my clothes among them
and cast lots for my garment.”
So this is what the soldiers did. Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. (John 19:16-27 NIV)
This is the story of the disciples. They had no idea that the story of Christs death was far from finished at this point.
Christ had to die so that he could raise back to life.
What dreams do you have that you are holding onto so tightly, that there is no possible movement in their inception for growth?
What dreams do you need to lay down?
It is in letting go that we create space for the new.
God might have a new and better plan or dream to replace the one you are doggedly holding onto.
In my life I had to let go of preconceived notions of marriage, I had to let go of my timeframes and attempts to speed up motherhood, I had to let my dreams die, so that God could bring about something new.
The new was better than I could have ever hoped or dreamed of.
What expectations have you created that you just need to let slide?
What people are you holding onto, that you need to let go their own way?
What dreams are you frustrating with lack of perspective?
Lay them down dear friend and awaken to the potential of the possibility of the new…
All my love
