Can I change my dream?

change my dream

A lady was running her own shop, it was what she’d always wanted to do ……
……. but the reality was not how she had imagined it.

She found that there were other things going on in her life that she wanted to be part of,
but that she was tied to the shop six days a week.
Her partner said to her “But you’re living your dream!”
She looked at me and said “Can you change your dream?”

We are in pursuit of happiness.
We aspire to things and think, “I’ll feel fulfilled and happy if only I do X.”
We do X and yet are only happy for a short time.

Can you change your dreams?
Yes, you can change your dreams, but true happiness, true fulfillment,
will only ever be found with God.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
Jeremiah 29:11
