“Dreamer of dreams, born out of my due time, Why should I strive to set the crooked straight?
Let it suffice me that my murmuring rhyme beats with light wing against the ivory gate, telling a tale not to importunate (persistent).
To those who in sleepy region stay, lulled by the singer of an empty day”
William Morris ; The Earthly Paradise.
What a lofty thought for us all to adopt. Yet all of us can; for the parent is the dream that we all are commissioned to make change for the better in something, somebody during our short lifetime here.
Age brings us memories of joys and frustrations that are so often displaced with the all to frequent questioning; “Why are we here?” One would be truly damned if we were consigned to a life without purpose… one of dependency only; a silent recipient of grace rendered without service; without response.
Yet we are all dreamers, we all have a place; the fortunate, however, dream destiny; His destined promise in us.
Why should we strive to “set the crooked straight?” Simply because that is why we are here. Our voice may seem small , but it can be part of a huge chorus of those like-minded, like driven….like inspired.
All of us engaged in writing and reading ChristianBlessings write or read to ultimately tell the tale; to beat our wings against the ivory gate. We can each determine individually what that means and what it entails. Is the gate a barrier or an entrance for you ?
Those who linger in the “sleepy regions” hear a different voice ( or none at all). They have yet to find the dream of communication; for making change.
May yours be an instrument fully tuned to the Lords plans for you; and thrive upon the power of the Holy Spirit- Conductor to make heavenly music and ministry full of His magic.
And, make it very persistent.
