People May Doubt, But Always Trust in Your Dreams

Genesis 37

18 When Joseph’s brothers saw him coming, they recognized him in the distance. As he approached, they made plans to kill him.

19 “Here comes the dreamer!” they said.

20 “Come on, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns. We can tell our father, ‘A wild animal has eaten him.’ Then we’ll see what becomes of his dreams!”

I’ve included this post because Joseph had dreams of making it big. He told his brothers how he basically would surpass them in life. Preceding this is written:

5 One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever

8 His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them.

9 Soon Joseph had another dream, and again he told his brothers about it. “Listen, I have had another dream,” he said. “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!”

10 This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. “What kind of dream is that?” he asked. “Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you?”

11 But while his brothers were jealous of Joseph, his father wondered what the dreams meant.

We have dreams in our lives that make people look at us and think ‘What is he/she talking about?’,‘That will never happen’, ‘Be realistic’, and so many more. The things is our dreams are OUR dreams, nobody else’s. When we set our hearts and minds on doing something, who is anyone to shoot that dream down? A lot of the time people don’t realise the impact they’re having on others. Some people are jealous, some just don’t rreally know us and think they want what’s best. How can they want what’s best when they’re not walking in our shoes? This is why we need to stand strong and keep our visions, keep our ideas and dreams and remain secure in ourselves to know that the only person that can get us to our dreams is ourselves, with the grace of Yahuvah. Only we can achieve our dreams. So if anyone laughs at you, makes you feel stupid, makes you feel like its not the ‘right’ thing to do, then accept their opinion, but stand firm in your own beliefs and know that it is only an opinion. They may say don’t follow your dream; I say you should follow your dreams. What do YOU ultimately want to do? Remember it’s your life, and only Yahuvah can guide you. If you fail, then know that you will always bounce back. What’s worse is blaming someone from holding you back, when really the only person holding you back is yourself.
