This picture makes me smile. It was taken in New Mexico at the Balloon Fiesta a few years ago. I was with my good friend, and we saw everything from a butterfly and a clock, to Darth Vader and Elvis, in balloon form, lift to the sky with effortless ease.
Of course it wasn’t effortless. Each team worked hard to get their massive balloon into the air. But once there, they gazed down upon the rest of us from a vantage point that I can only imagine made every problem along the way seem small.
Jeremiah 29:11 says “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Whatever you’re going through now, God knows. He knows, and He cares. This isn’t all there is. He has a plan for your future. The dream you have in your heart, you know, the one that won’t go away? It’s there for a reason. God put a spark of greatness in each of us to be what he envisioned when He created us. What spark did he place in the center of your heart? Stop ignoring it, you don’t want it to go away.
Let your hopes and dreams soar.
