Hold On, Dreamer!

Reject the sleepers gravitational pull! His mediocrity and compromise feels so easy but brings such torment. (Eph 5:14)

While the old, learned, and supposedly wise stare down their noses at your youthful spirit– lead them by chasing your unfalteringly impossible dreams. (1 Timothy 4:12

Yet don’t be deceived. Those temple-loving Christians want you dead. Your dreams are dangerous to them. Your dream soaked actions threaten their man-made puffed-up power. (Mark 11:15-18)

Their positions of power are a well-intentioned den of vipers. They’d rather be popular hypocrites than simple servants to the poor, the lost, the widows, and orphans. (Matthew 23

But not you. O, your life itself is shalom. You don’t just study God’s Word— you’re wild enough to live it. (James 3:13-16)

You spend time with the wrong people. You’re more comfortable eating dinner with a pimp or pimply-faced punk as the self-righteous. For you dream that theirs too is the Kingdom of God. (Matthew 9:10-13)

Your faith is untamed. It’s a raging inferno of purpose. It’s more driven than any model. It’s wide-eyed and beautiful recklessness. Strategy and planning take a back seat when you’re at your best. For the Spirit both comforts and guides. (John 14:16-17)

You see earthly success as wasteful failure while embracing Kingdom dreams of another way. (Matthew 4:19)

Christ shines not on your sweet sleep dreams, but on the vivid realities of your waking walking wonderful dreams. (Ephesians 5:14)

These dreams aren’t just for you, they are you

The Gospel isn’t just for your eternal destiny, it lives through you to renew your neighborhood. (John 1:14)

Hold on, Dreamer!

Hold on.
