What are you dreaming of?

This is the title of the next chapter in a book I am reading by Nancy Guthrie. And this is the first statement I came to today as I opened the book where I left off....
Are your dreams molded by the culture we live in and what this world values and recognizes? Or have your dreams been shaped and reborn as the Holy Spirit remakes you and as the Word of God renews your mind? Nancy Guthrie
...after reading it, I closed the book and realized before I go on, I need to ask myself this question and ponder the answer.

Good stuff.

That is the sort of question I ponder for days. I love it when something makes me think new thoughts and stretches me a little.
Thanks for sharing that quote Chris.

Wow! Great question! What (or who) molds our dreams holds a supreme position in our lives, for sure. Great food for thought.

Somebody make the coffee, this is a really good discussion question. I'm thinking I have quit dreaming lots the dreams that made me discontent with what I have been blessed with. American Dream? Wonder how that differs from Ugandan dream or a Christian's dream in Iran? I'm liking the thoughts of what dream would the Holy Spirit have me dream...?
Thanks Chris, good post.
