Beautiful Dreams are True: A Poem

Updated on November 3, 2011


I'm a beautiful dreamer if You're the dream


I know that this life is more than would seem


You're looking from up above, shining Your glory


Read Your Word, it tells your loving story


A passionate King, giving His prince up for the poor


A guiltless man, beaten, used, and scorn


A holy calling, His duty was fulfilled


Life through his blood, it was death that was killed

I'm a beautiful dreamer if You're the dream


With your love in my heart bursting at its seam


You smile at me, I grin with joy at You


With peace like this, who knows what will ensue?


Thank you, God, for joyful and eternal life


For guidance and strength through the strife


I will wait until that glorious, beautiful day

      Everyone is a dreamer I believe. To dream is to better life. To better life is to honor the Life-giver. Amen.

      Amen; that's what I meant: living life on the earth for God while anticipating eternal glory.

      YW.

      The ultimate connection is vertical, right? i.e., not just dreaming of a marriage partner but of a future connected with divine leading ... .

      Blessings.

      Re-reading it: 'I'm the beautiful dreamer if You're the dream'.

      Good line!

      Blessings.

      PS: re. 'Read Your Word, it tells your loving story'. I just looked at this again and certainly, the theme of love really shines through in John's Gospel and John's epistles; it's a key word. Blessings.

      I like how you describe it. :) A dream seems like a high and lofty goal. It's true that we can't be who God wants us to be by our own power and strength. Through Christ, God doesn't see us and our shortcomings; He sees Jesus and His blood covering us. Dreams can come true if we seek God's will and dreams for our life instead of our own. That's the important part; it's based on God's Word.

      You discuss aspects of dreams.

      In the sense that a 'dream' can seem almost too good to be true, I guess that what the hymn calls 'Love so amazing, so divine' can also seem like a 'dream', too. But it's founded on God's Word.

      Blessings.
