Broken Dreams

As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because He was my friend.
But then instead of leaving Him
In peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,
“How could you be so slow”
“My child,” He said, “What could I do?
You never did let go.”

Robert J. Burdette

That poem says it all doesn’t it?! As does the song Give Him All The Pieces by Celebr8, please listen and enjoy this song:

Someone we find the only time we bring our dreams to God is when they’ve become broken dreams, we we’re looking for some quick fix to mend them. But that’s not what God wants, God wants to be a part of all our dreams and help us make all our God focused dreams come true.

If we have broken dreams it probably because they were never God focused dreams, and as such we probably never let God be part of them.

Remember to always to take your problems, your disappointments, your burdens, your sorrows, your hopes, your dreams, all to God. He alone will help with all of them…although your burdens, problem must be left at God’s feet. Give your problems to God and leave them there, He will take care of them in His way. So don’t try to ask for God’s help but continue to try to hold onto your problems, God needs you to give your problems to Him and leave them there.
