In my own little corner in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be
These are words from a song in Cinderella
Cinderella doesn’t have a place in the rest of the house to sit
She isn’t allowed to mingle with the rest of the family
But her little chair by the fire is all hers
No one elses
In her chair, she dreams of all she would like to be
Dreams of all the places she would like to go
Dreams of someone to love her
Dreams of something different
Dreams of something better
Cinderella’s dreams helped her to bear the everyday drudgery of her life
Cinderella! Do this!
Cinderella! Do that!
But in her chair, her dreams were hers
And life was beautiful and not covered in soot
Had Cinderella been content to just sit in her chair and dream
Her dreams likely would have not come true
She had to follow those dreams
She followed them all the way to the castle of the king
There she met her prince and all her dreams come true
Life isn’t a fairy tale but God does give us dreams
Dreams and plans that are bigger than we are
Desires so strong they can be overwhelming
But if all we do is sit in our little chair by the fire
Thinking about how wonderful it would be if those dreams and desires come true
Then all we are going to have is a pile of ashes
We have to get out of that chair, equip ourselves and go chasing after that dream
What dreams have you been dreaming?
Are you still in your chair?
Time to lace up your running shoes and GO!
