Summary: There are two kinds of Dreamers in the world. Those who "Dream" & those who "DREAM!" Those who Dream & only Dream & those who "DREAM!" and Do!
If I were to ask you this morning, if you want to live an exciting lifestyle you would say yes. All of you would say “YES!” You know, the kind of lifestyle that we see in the movies, on television, traveling in private jets, jetting all over the world, eating the best foods, wearing the best clothes, hanging with all the most important and beautiful people of the world. Everybody wanting to see what you’re going to do next, have an exciting job. You know; live that life that all of us have “DREAMED” about from time to time. It’s only natural. We all want that kind of lifestyle! We all want life to be exciting!
You might say, “I DREAM of a life like that!” I’d love to be able to jet around the world in a private jet! Again, it’s only natural that we all want something better out of life. We “DREAM” of things like that!
There are TWO kinds of “DREAMERS” in the world! Those who “DREAM” those who “DREAM!” Don’t misunderstand me. There are those who “DREAM” and “ONLY DREAM” they never do anything about their “DREAMS!” Then there are those who “DREAM” and they strive to make them come true and many times they do come true.
Ben Franklin was a “DREAMER!” Jonas Salk was a “DREAMER!” Martin Luther King was a “DREAMER!” Ronald Reagan was a “DREAMER!” The greatest people who ever lived were “DREAMERS!” Even Jesus was a “DREAMER!” He “DREAMED” of a world full of people who “LOVED & SERVED GOD” with all their HEART, SOULS AND BODIES, So much so that He died for that “DREAM!”
Many are called or classified as “DREAMERS” are done so in a detrimental way. It’s not always looked on as a good thing to be called a “DREAMER!” Many people think “DREAMERS” are goofy, crazy, out of touch with reality, don’t have a good grasp on things, they’re made fun of and put down. But these who “DREAMED & DREAMED BIG, THEY DREAMED” something into existence! What others thought was impossible they could see as possible. Our forefathers on this great nation were thought of like that but they “DREAMED” of freedom and fought and died for it till they achieved it!
If you are a “DREAMER” then good for you! But! If you are only a “DREAMER” who does nothing about it then that’s just sad! BUT! If you are a “DREAMER” who “DREAMS” and does something about it then you are among a great elite of “DREAMERS!” It’s the “DREAMERS” who get things done in life!
Most people in life are happy to “JUST GET BY!” They’re happy to live life without all the commitment that “TRUE EXCITING LIVING” is all about! I see the people who excel in life and they are the people who refuse to “JUST GET BY!” They refuse to “JUST DREAM” about how it “COULD BE” and “DREAM” about how it “SHOULD BE!”
THEY REFUSE TO LIVE LIFE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! THEY REFUSE TO “NOT” GIVE IT ALL THEY HAVE TO GIVE! THEY ARE THE “TRUE WORLD SHAKERS!” THIS IS TRUE IN EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE ON THE PLANET AND IN EVERY SOCIETY ON THE PLANET!
You can look at other societies in the world who don’t have it like this country does and see how it works! How “DREAMS & DREAMERS” are squashed, how they are not much better off now than they were 1000 years ago! LIVING LIFE IN THIS FRAME OF MIND SEEMS TO “DESTROY” FORWARD THINKING AND FORWARD MOMENTUM!
They question you have to ask yourself is simple and profound!
“AM I A DREAMER OF JUST A DREAMER?”
Do you “DREAM” and do nothing and wonder why or do you “DREAM” and work towards fulfilling your “DREAM!” You see that is the difference in being a “DREAMER or JUST A DREAMER!” It’s the difference in “WINNING!” If you only “DREAM” and do nothing then your “DREAMS” FRUSTRATE YOU AND DEFEAT YOU IN AND OF YOURSELF! You become, and are happy to “JUST GET BY!” But if you “DREAM” and work towards your “DREAMS” then you are on the “WINNING CUSP” and they “WINNING WAY!”
How do you live a life and not “JUST GET BY?” Good question! It’s relatively easy but at the same time I realize how profoundly difficult it really it, BUT!
IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE!
Romans 12:1 says it all for the “DREAMERS!
“I beseech you therefore bretheren, by the mercies of God, that you present you bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what
is that good and acceptable will of God.”
