Dare to Dream
Life full of mysteries
Life full of challenges
Life full of excitements
Life full of opportunities
We often wonder...
Which dreams that God puts into our hearts
that worth to pursue ?!?
that worth to fight for ?!?
Youth is so precious and yet youth is passing away so quickly...
There are many dreams and visions that we would like to accomplished
Yet, we do not know which dreams that would come true?
Yet, we do not know which dreams that would be blessed by Heavens?
Only when our dreams are aligning with the Heaven's will
Then, there will be fulfilment for such dreams
Just like Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph
Whose dreams were blessed by the Heavens
The God of the Heavens and Earth
The God of the Universe also has a dream
His dream is for an ideal world
His dream is for a peaceful world
We, as His people often wonder...
When would God's dream for an ideal world would come true?
When would God's vision for a peaceful world would be realised?
While most nations rise with conflicts with one another?
While many people are still full with hatred, jealousy, and anger?
While many people are caught up with pride, sex, and money?
While people behave like prostitutes before God?
While our youth are influenced by drugs, lust, and guns?
This is certainly not the ideal world that the Lord has envisioned?
This is certainly not the Heavens on Earth that He has in mind for creations?
Yet, sadly the world is still somehow tricked by the enemy
As a bride who is taken from her bridegroom
Would the world perfect herself to be more beautiful?
Would the world cleanse herself to regain her purity?
Would the world share the vision of her Creator?
Would the world adorn herself with clean-linen of righteousness?
Let's dare to dream beautiful dreams!!!
Let's dare to dream ambitious dreams!!!
Let's dare to work hard to fulfil our dreams!!!
For a better life
For a better family
For a better nation, and
For a better world
Let's align our dreams with the Heavens' dreams
Let's dream together inside the territory of God's Kingdom
Let's dream together through uniting our hearts with our Creator
Let's dream to establish Heavens Kingdom here on this earth
Only then, a better world can be accomplished
Only then, we as God's beloved people can achieve harmony
Through synchronising our pace with the Heavens' movement
Through understanding a deeper level of the Heart of God...
Thank you Lord for inspiring me
to write this poem through learning
more about Your beautiful will
in our finite time on Earth,
