|Dreamality: Heaven's Dream-Your Reality
By Bob Coy Ministries / Howard Books
| Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, many of us let go of our dreams. We stop trusting that anything will be different. We stop hoping that anything could get better. We stop expecting life to be full of excitement, anticipation, joy, fun, and hope. Optimism is replaced by anger, frustration, and bitterness. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Bob Coy, senior pastor of the seventeen thousand member Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale, believes that hope can be revived and we can rekindle in our heart the expectation of something more. Using the biblical story of Joseph as a recurring analogy, Coy looks to God as our dream-deliver as well as the source of our dreams. He asserts that, as we come to understand God's heart toward us and the bigger picture of our lives, we can reclaim and live out our dreams.
