How to Think, Dream and Lead like Jesus (part 2)

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia)

Anyone can have a lights off, middle of the night, unconscious dream. This is passive and can be explained scientifically as something human experienced by all people. The type of dream that will be discussed at the upcoming Leadership Rocks experiences is better explained from a supernatural and spiritual perspective than a scientific one. You see it is the active pursuit of what can be accomplished when imagination is used while living ones life at the feet of Jesus. It is the conscious middle of the day dreamer that inevitably change things because they understand the following:

God can use me NOW

There is something liberating about the sacredness of this day. For students in particular it is important to note the active pursuit of a dream today, whether that means the discovery of the dream itself or the accomplishing of goals within that dream.

A dream is storyboarding without limitations

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or (even) think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Eph. 3:20-21)

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
