Bryce Canyon in southern Utah contains miles of spectacular beauty created by the forces of nature. And just as the wind here creates fascinating sights, so the Spirit changes us into new creations for the world to see and once seeing, be impacted by our lives.
The problem for us, of course, is that we hunger to change into those beautiful creations overnight. We set goals, write down our dreams and visualize the changes we wish to see in the world. But then it doesn't happen in 5 minutes, 5 months or even sometimes 5 years. What happens to the dreams?
I remember writing my first book and declaring it would be a New York Times best-seller! That hasn't happened yet and my challenge is to keep the faith, without getting discouraged. Seeing Bryce Canyon reminds me those changes that so moved me took time. I hope I don't have to wait for eons for the Spirit to change me sufficiently to see dreams come true and people impacted by my life. In the meantime, I wait, I plan and prepare, and I keep dreaming.
