I’ve been thinking about broken dreams lately.
We’ve all got them. Just different ones.
So what are you going to do with yours?[tweetherder]Could it be that God is waiting for you to give Him the broken pieces of your shattered dreams so that He can make a beautiful mosaic from them?[/tweetherder]
Could it be that you are clinging tightly to the shards and refusing to let them go?
Today, I simply want to share a poem. Just ponder these words and ask God if they apply to you.
Just as my child brings his broken toys
with tears for me to mend.
I took my broken dreams to God
because He was my friend.
But then instead of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
with ways that were my own.
At last I snatched them back and cried,
“How could you be so slow?”
“What could I do, My child,” He said,
“You never would let go.”
by Faith Mitchner
I don’t want to be that person, do you? I want to LET IT GO! I want to give God all the pieces.
If you will open your hands with me today, and release those broken dreams to God, simply leave a comment that says…I’M LETTING IT GO!
The poem, Broken Dreams, was taken from my book, The 5 Dreams of Every Woman…and How God Wants to Fulfill Them.
