"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
Not many people get to live their dream. Some people never have a dream. A few live a nightmare.
The reason I am able to live my dream is twofold, God has been exceedingly gracious to me and a big part of that graciousness is His blessing me with a wife who has sacrificed to allow me to chase it.
How can two people become one if they don't share a dream or if they harbor competing dreams?
I believe that a couple should first discern the dream God has for their marriage and dedicate themselves to that above all. Then, I believe that each partner should be fully committed to helping each other chase their individual dreams. Obviously, their individual dreams should not come into conflict with their shared dream.
If you want to have a dream marriage don't be afraid to dream. But share God's dream and let God shape your dreams and then enjoy the pursuit!
Dreams do come true when you are true to the dreams that God planted in your spirit and to the person He partnered you with!
