Cast Son-Light on Your Dreams

You know that idea – that thought

That dream spinning circles

Gathering strength and passion with every sigh?

You know the one

It’s that bright spot that captures your hope

At every odd moment

But you don’t really want to speak it out loud

Don’t want to put it out there

Weak and vulnerable

To the critique or opinions of others

Especially when it’s struggling to stand on wobbly legs

But it deserves a voice, don’t you think?

It kicks and begs for air

And if you don’t share,

Keep it all to yourself

How will it ever breathe

And grow wings of its own?

How is God glorified

By a rose yet to bloom?

If fear binds and gags

Makes the smoke billow

but stifles the flame

Perhaps it’s time to

Bring the dream to life with your words

Give it a name

Give it a voice

Write it to the Lord

In words meant for only Him

The One who planted the dream seed

Long ago, before you were you

He planted the seed so He, too could watch it grow

After all….

You were just a thought once

Just a dream of the Father

Until God gave you a voice

Gave you a name

Gave you today.

"There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off."

(Proverbs 23:18) NIV

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

(Mark 11:24) NIV


  1. That was awesome poem! Dreams we sure do have them we make dreams for our future our present.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful words Debbie, so inspiring. We do seem to stifle the dreams that He himself plants within us. We need to remember that fear overcomes us, but He overcomes the world! Praise you Jesus, the dream planter and fear killer, we love you!
