Lessons Learned from Steven Tyler
Before I got married I had a little TV with an antenna that only got one channel with decent quality. So I really only knew about shows on NBC. When I started dating my now husband I was introduced to HD TV and reality TV. Hallelujah!
One show I met was American Idol. The last couple of years have been some of my favorite. (Simon and Paula being gone made the show better in my opinion). I love watching these every day kids pursue their dreams.
In one of the last shows Steven Tyler, who is just hilarious, said “If you don’t have a dream then you have no way to make one come true.” I realize Mr. Tyler isn’t a theologian but his words just won’t leave me.
I was a little girl that loved to wish upon a star, loved to dream of being a dress designer in NYC, loved to dream of being a mommy, loved to dream of walking down the red carpet for an awards show, loved to dream of dreams…I simply loved to dream and still do. One of the greatest lessons I have learned is how to separate Carey dreams from God dreams. It is a bit tricky and requires two clean ears and an open heart.
I am in a season where it is time for me to set down what I wish for and pursue what God dreams for me.
How about you? Do you love to dream? Have you let go of a dream? Do you need to take a moment and wish upon a star tonight? Do you need to set aside some listening time?
