God’s Dream

Thanks Prodiglal Kiwi(s) for this gem to bring to the surface the heart of God in all Christian ministry .

” I myself will dream a dream within you…

Good dreams come from me, you know

My dreams seem impossible,

not too practical,

not for the cautious man or woman

a little risky sometimes

a trifle brash perhaps

Some of my friends prefer

to rest more comfortably,

in sounder sleep,

with visionless eyes

But, from those who share my dreams

I ask a little patience

a little humour,

some small courage,

and a listening heart

I will do the rest

Then they will risk

and wonder at their daring

Run…and marvel at their speed

Build…and stand in awe at the beauty of their building

You will meet me often as you work

in your companions, who share the risk

in your friends, who believe in you enough

to lend their own dreams

their own hands

their own hearts

to your building

In the people who stand in your doorway,

stay awhile,

and walk away knowing that they, too, can find a dream

There will be sun-filled days

and sometimes it will rain

a little variety –

both come from me.

So come now, be content

It is my dream you dream

my house you build

my caring you witness

my love you share

and this is the heart of the matter.
~ French Poet Charles Peguy (1873-1914)
