Shared Dreams

You had so many dreams and plans together. Your future was anticipated as a twosome.

Emy, whose husband died, says, "We did not do everything we had always hoped. The golden years were not golden. Some of our dreams were really dashed. But you have to realize that life is not given to you as a rose garden, and you don’t appreciate the heights until you go through the valleys."

Right now you may feel completely hopeless, and all you can see in your mind is ruined dreams. But as you look toward the future, focus beyond the debris and find the light. There is a light in your darkness, and that light is the Lord Jesus Christ.

"You will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts" (2 Peter 1:19).

Lord Jesus, help me to see beyond my broken dreams and to follow the light that will lead me into a new day. Amen.
