Elvis had many box office hits in his movie career. One of his films, titled "Follow That Dream" did not have a dramatic plot; it just gave fans the chance to see him on the big screen, and enjoy his music. We all need a dream; and the challenge to follow that dream is motivating!
We should seek out our goals, those repressed dreams and line them up against God's plan for our lives. ""Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14 NAS)."
In many ways a dream and a vision are similar. Search several Bible translations for wording in Proverbs 29:18. The word vision is also shared as a revelation. The tragic results of a lack of vision includes: perishing, running wild, and being unrestrained. It seems that individually, families, churches and nations need a dream, a vision renewed and refreshed in us. I desire that within my mind and spirit.
I do not want my life to be "running wild!" It brings to mind a car on a busy interstate, with a loss of control, leading to chain reaction accidents. Take my challenge, "Follow That Dream" of reaching that goal ahead. Jesus is waiting at the finish line!
