dreams vs reality

Often, my days are spent dreaming.
I'm not working my "dream job."
So, I dream about the day I'm offered one.
We're not living in "our" home.
So, I dream about the day we own one.
I don't have a family.
So, I dream about the day that will happen.
Dreaming can be fun.
It can be innocent and fill you with hope.
But it can turn quickly and fill you with discontent.
Reality comes in and ruins the wonder filled dream land.
No longer do you just dream, you desire, you envy.
Living in dreams doesn't mean you have to be out of touch with reality.
Living in reality doesn't mean you have to be negative and hopeless.
I believe there's a healthy marriage between the two.
An equal amount of room for both, in one mind.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity;  she can laugh at the days to come."
Proverbs 31:25

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans."
Proverbs 16: 3

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Romans 12:12

"We have this hope as anchor for the soul, firm and secure."
Hebrews 6:19
