Gal. 5:7 YE DID RUN WELL, WHO DID HINDER YOU THAT YE SHOULD NOT OBEY THE TRUTH?

SPLATTING (or falling towers and dashed dreams)

A. Heb. 12:1 Wherefore seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,let us lay aside every weight, and sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

B. REACHING INVISIBLE BARRIERS... splatting!

Long distance runners will always reach a point

in any race that is called SPLATTING OR

knot up, the lungs can’t get enough air, the

muscle tighten, This is a MENTAL and PHYSICAL

BARRIER.

broken mental concentration. Physical fatigue,

collapsing dreams, and quitting the race.

splatting, somehow they discipline their heart

and mind, KEEP PICKING THE FEET UP, KEEP PUTTING

THE FEET DOWN.

impact on others. We often don’t like or

appreciate other’s impact ... WE SPLAT

4. WE NEED DREAMERS. SOLUTION SEEKERS.

Gen. 37:19 And they said one to another, BEHOLD

THE DREAMER COMETH.

If it weren’t for this dreamer the whole family

and nation of Israel would die.

5. You see things as they are and say WHY? But we must dream things that are not, and say, WHY NOT?

deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul ...

the dream opens far beyond ability and egos.

7. THE STORY OF THREE TREES.

Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said,

"Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I

could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty."

Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull."
