Our dreams and God's dreams

Debra at As I See It Now has some encouraging meditations on dreams.

From experience, I've noticed that my own self-made-up dreams are always too safe. Too quiet. My own dreams require little risk--practically none, in fact. I can carry them out whether God shows up or not.

But God's dreams for me... Oh my. They have always required that I step out of the boat in deep seas and then, yes, walk on water.

Debra's writing is a beautiful exploration of the heart --- darkness, redemption, and the quiet confidence of a long-in-coming miracle of peace. Her blog is worth a visit.

Thanks, Sarah. I went to your page--loved the header, but use Mozilla (IE keeps crashing) so wasn't able to view the whole thing. Will try again if I ever get IE working. Peace.
