The Dream I Have

Updated on December 3, 2011

Helping Somebody Out

I have a dream rooted so deeply in my soul and so far past the realm of possibility - at least to the human eye - that it has to be a God-given dream.

You see, if you could know what a self-centered person I used to be, you would understand why I say it is a God-given dream. I used to be just judgemental and cynical enough to think that most people were doing as well as they tried to do. That was before God allowed me to find out that I was no better than anyone else, and that even I could trip and fall. And that no matter what someone else may be doing - or how they may be living - alot of times, it is the best that they can do. But that is another hub in itself. Back to my dream.....

In addition to my desire to help people with my words, I have a burning desire to help people financially. There again, if you could see my bank account on any given day, you would see what a supernatural, out-of-this-world dream this is. But I'm here to tell you that if this dream is by God's design - it will happen. Because my God is a supernatural, out-of-this-world God.

I already know whom I will help. It is my dream to be able to help the family who is working as hard as they can - and maybe just squeezing by - and then they are hit with a huge, unexpected and unavoidable, expense. I would much rather be able to walk into our local power company office and pay somebody else's light bill - than I would to buy anything I can think of for myself. It would be such a thrill for me to be able to sneak some cash to someone who I knew was having a hard time to make ends meet. I have done this on a tiny scale...but my dream is for it to be much more! And I would hope that they would never know that it came from me - as I would want them to know that it came from God.

I want to be able to buy a tank of heating fuel for the elderly couple who are just getting by on their fixed income. To be able to go to the grocery store and get a gift card for the family with a single parent - or maybe two parents who can't find the job that would make a huge difference in their lives.

A truly magical Christmas, for me, would be the one when I could go to WalMart and buy gift cards or boxes of gifts, and go from house to house where I knew that Christmas would be scarce.

I would love to set up a type of foundation where hardworking people who are temporarily overwhelmed financially could get a one-time "bail-out" that they would not have to pay back. I'm not talking about giving more free stuff to those who already get all the free stuff and would rather live off the free stuff than to work. I am talking about people who have worked all their lives and paid their own way, but now just need a boost.

I admit, I spend a good deal of my meditating time fantasizing about how good it would feel to be able to help people in this way. My husband and I share this dream, and we spend time just talking about how much fun it would be to be able to do these things.

I have the ideas and the desire - but it will be up to God to provide the resources. But then, after all - I do serve a supernatural out-of-this-world God!!
