Dreaming has a powerful effect on a marriage and a family. It brings a unique depth of closeness and connection. Dreaming together is one of the ways in which you reaffirm your commitment to each other and to your future.
The most powerful benefit of sharing a vision for your future is the harmony it can create. What you can do together is far greater than what you can do alone. As the African Proverbs states “If you want to go fast go alone, If you want to go far go together”. Your combined abilities, experience, talents, and passions create an incredible God-blessed synergy where the two become one. This oneness is a superpower that God wants you to use to bless others as well.
Don’t ever stop dreaming together as a couple or a family. When one dream comes to fruition or unexpectedly ends, start asking what might be next for you.
This week before you go off to work, as a couple share a Wish, a Hope, or a Dream with your spouse.
This week at dinner with the kids, allow them to share a future hope or idea they have and let them dream a little bit.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” -Jeremiah 29:11
