We all have hopes and dreams. Sometimes our hopes and dreams are crushed due to factors over which we have no control. When our hopes and dreams are crushed, we talk about having to pick up the pieces. What we must remember when our hopes and dreams are crushed is that God always gives us a way to pick up the pieces. God always gives us a way to piece our lives back together again. Piecing our lives back together is not easy. Many people are often afraid to try to pick up the pieces after hopes and dreams have been crushed. However, God gave you a mind, a heart, and a soul to hold, possess, and pursue hopes and dreams. You can pursue your own dreams, but God wants you to pursue only His dreams for your life. When you pursue His dream there is never any disappointment. When you pursue God’s dream for your life, the love of God flowing down over you can heal you from the tragedy and loss of your worldly hopes and dreams that have been crushed.
