When you stop dreaming
What’s this got to do with you and me? A lot of people sleepwalk through life having no real dreams. Somewhere along the line we’ve lied to ourselves and believed a lie that chasing dreams is for kids, that we’re grown-ups now, that we need to make the best with what we have, just get through this day and forget about tomorrow.
- Michael Jackson died after 60 days of no REM sleep. He had no dreams for two months.
- Some people haven’t really dreamt in decades.
When you stop dreaming, you start dying
In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
