It makes all the difference in the world.
Today was Opening Day for the local youth soccer league. Proudly, I watched as my six-year-old daughter and her team took to the field. No one was keeping score, and it looked like no one knew exactly what they were doing, either. But it didn’t matter. They came to play, and that’s exactly what they did.
Kids at play always have lessons we adults always need to be reminded of. Today, for me the lesson was a reminder about showing up, stepping over the white line and entering the arena. Even if we haven’t yet gotten everything all figured out.
We all have hopes and dreams within us, many which will never be given the chance to come true, simply because we are standing on the wrong side of the white line, the white line which separates the players from the spectators. Our hopes and dreams require us to cross over the line; our dreams will never be realized simply watching others acheive theirs.
Your life is God’s dream come true, and God’s greatest hope is the dreams He’s placed within you are fully realized and shared with the world.
So, what side of the white line are you standing on?
It’s a great day to be you!
