Dreams I Dream For You

You taste the tears
You're lost in sorrow
You see your yesterdays
I see tomorrow
You see the darkness
I see the spark
You know your failures
But I know your heart
(Chorus:)
The dreams I dream for you
Are deeper than the ones you're clinging to
More precious than the finest things you knew
And truer than the treasures you pursue
Let the old dreams die
Like stars that fade from view
Then take the cup I offer
And drink deeply of
The dreams I dream for you
You see your shame
But I see your glory
You've read one page
I know the story
I hold a vision
That you'll become
As you grow into the truth
As you learn to walk in love
(Chorus)
Let the old dreams die
Like stars that fade from view
Then take the cup I offer
And drink deeply of
The dreams I dream for you

This song is all about how your view God. It describes the Lord as a proud parent wishing, hoping for the best for His child. Knowing that the future holds great things if you are willing to follow His path.

What He has for you is better than anything you could ever imagine!

My Heart, My Calling  

Posted by Sarah Forbes in

Since I was a young teen, I have had a heart for the plight of the Ladies of my generation and those who are coming after us. There is no guide book. Few or no examples of godly living.

We seem lost in a world that says that what it is doing is just fine so why do we shy away from what is conventional? Many of us are living too close to the world. Sometimes we know we should be different but don't know how. Sometimes we are just uninformed about Christ's expectation of being different from the world around us.

There is a Way. A better way than that which the world has chosen for its young women. If we want better results than that which the world has, we need to start out differently.

Consider the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.

If we do what the world does, we will get what the world gets. This is the basic Law of sowing a reaping.

You cannot live as the world lives and expect to get godly fruit.
