The Baggage of my Dreams

“This is an unusual bag- it’s different from all the rest… this is the baggage of my dreams. It’s not a sin, it’s not a weight, it’s not a curse after the normal order- this is the weight of being a dreamer. The baggage of my dreams – stops me from being satisfied- because I dream so much bigger than I live. The baggage of my dreams – to him who much is given- much is required. I could be happy here- but my dreams are so much bigger than my reality. It is the baggage of dreams. It is hard to make a dreamer happy, because dreamer’s dreams keep moving forward. If you give them a house- they’ll dream of a garage. If you give them a garage they’ll dream of a driveway. You give them a driveway they’ll dream of a boat”.


The bible calls us to live a life of contentment:

Philippians 4:11 …for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me…

Set yourself free today and rest in the Lord!

There are three things I think about every moment of everyday... they consume me deeply. How to: 1. Refine my theological understanding 2. sharpen my ethical rigor 3. and heighten my devotional intensity. These are the things I write about. Welcome you to my blog... Join me on this incredible journey of exploration and discovery of all the things God has in store for His children. Join by following or subscribing. I appreciate your thoughts, comments and friendship. Walter


  1. Great post, I definetly rest in the Lord. Dreaming to me is not baggage but motivation to push towards the vision God has given me. It’s nuturing the seed that has been planted. People tend to get caught up in dreams of the flesh and the greed that comes with that. But when the dream is of Him, there will be rest. 🙂


  2. Great message Walter. What we tend to label as dreams are far too often our desires of the flesh. May we find our contentment in Christ! And in Him alone. Thanks good friend, and blessings.
