Reflections from the Heart of Allan Redenius
I’ll admit it. I’m a dreamer. When I was younger, my dreams were imaginative and even sometimes beyond reach. Way back then, I was young and didn’t know some dreams just don’t come true. Though beyond my grasp, my quest for what I dreamed, was not diminished. Could it be my dream will come true, just over the next hilltop?
I’ve climbed a lot of hilltops and, when there at the pinnacle, do you know what often comes into view? In the distance, on the horizon, are a thousand more hilltops.
Every once in a while, at the top, I find a treasure. Those treasures motivate me to move ever forward, hoping the next impossible dream is realized.
Here are some dreams of my youth:
There are dreams yet to be realized. Yes, there are dreams to be had, dreams to be fulfilled, even in old age. That’s God’s promise in Joel 2:28. “…your old men shall dream dreams…” Here are just a few of my dreams of today.
Over the years, my dreams have changed. The dreams of my youth were, for the most part, self-centered. I climbed a thousand hilltops to find treasure here on earth. Now my dreams are centered on that mansion just over the hilltop.
What are your dreams?
