When Your Dream for Tomorrow is Robbing You From Today.
I have dreams in my heart that I long for so much, that the thought of them never seeing the light of day makes my body ache. They're the type of dreams that I really don't have much say in them happening or not. Of course, theres hard work and a good attitude that can go a long way in making lots of dreams come true! But, what I am talking about is this feeling of vulnerable suspension, like you're just standing there not sure of what is about to come or not come your way.
I will keep this short in saying, I am slowly learning that for the things I cannot control, I can at least control myself. I can control the person I am right now and the one I am becoming. I may not have the things I yearn for today but I can make sure that if I ever get them, I will be ready. I can make sure that my dreams for tomorrow do not rob me from my today. I can be sure that when tomorrow comes, I am the best version of myself I can be. Ready for the dream becoming reality or the dream dying and a new one starting.
I can make sure that my dreams for tomorrow do not rob me from my today.
Just because I want something with my whole heart, doesn't mean I will see it one day. But, it is definitely something to hope for, its something to challenge me daily and a reminder that I am in His hands and He is working all things for my good. So, it is to Him that I want to give all the glory and try my best each day to not let my dream rob me from today. There is this surprising balance to be found between the two. I'm not always aware of how to locate it. But I hope to keep getting better at it. And I hope the same for you if you've ever felt like me.
