Chasing And Catching Dreams




Too much hustle and bustle in life; it’s time to relax and get away.

Too much chasing and running in life; it’s time to slow down and stay slow.

Then after a moment of rest, I will stand up with a broad smile and a lighter heart.......

And I will be found chasing and catching my dreams again.......

I remember my younger days, when I enjoyed chasing butterflies, catching fish, picking flowers, climbing trees, daydreaming.......

I remember as a teenage boy, chasing dreams, catching dreams, achieving dreams.......

I remember as a young adult, chasing and running after jobs, fame, degree, adventure, happiness, stability.......

And now, here I am, more successful, recognized, popular and well-respected than ever, but nevertheless still chasing and catching my dreams.

The Scripture taught me that ‘godliness with contentment is great gain’.

I often ponder and wonder when I will and can be contented.......

I often ended up with a rueful and weary smile.

Not now; surely not now. I shook my head.

But I know the Scripture is true.

Godliness with contentment is great gain.

There is nothing more important than godliness and contentment. First, to be at peace with God, and second, to be at peace with oneself, and then to be at peace with the rest of the world.

I’m not against chasing and running after our dreams.

In fact, I want everyone to have goals to live a fulfilled life.

But godliness and contentment should be the twin pillars of our lives; our ultimate goals in life.

I’m still chasing and running after my dreams.

Though I have lesser dreams now, and I seldom dream in my sleep.

But I’m perfecting my dreams, doing all I can for God, myself, and others.

Chasing and catching dreams.......

Here I come.......

I stand up with a broad smile and a lighter heart, and a bit of tear in my eyes.......

Contentment is the word. Though it doesn't mean we have to stay the same and never dream anymore... But being contented with what you have releases the true happiness from within. And of course, it shows how grateful you are from what GOD has given you ^^ nice post!
