Broken Dreams

"We both had dreams," they answered, "but there is no one to interpret them." Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams."

—Genesis 40:8

Do you have dreams that never came true?

* Maybe you were you told you had great talent--that you should go for it and make it to the top.

* Was your dream to be a star on stage or screen?

* Maybe your dream was to live a peaceful life teaching at a university with the security of tenure, or to write a bestseller.

* Maybe you believed that you’d grow up, easily discover the person God chose for you, marry that person, make a lot of money, have great kids who were never a problem, and continue to live happily ever after?

Think about your great dreams that haven’t come true--we all have some. Yet our broken dreams are by no means the end of the story, because they hold important lessons within them.

If you have faith in Jesus Christ, your final destination is secure. Our life here on earth is a character-building journey full of opportunities--to dream, to connect, and to love one another, and when there is brokenness, to adjust your dream, to re-connect, and to continue loving one another.
