I have a bad habit when I am driving to daydream. I make up things in my head that I wish would happen. I get long stories and events and they can play out for hours. One nights I couldn't sleep I would do this and I would have all these fantacies that could go on for days. I never really looked at it as sin until I truly set my heart on God and saw how much time I was wasting.
Then a friend of mine texted me the other day ans she was saying how she feels like she lives in a false reality. She chooses not to see what is really going on but instead daydreams the realities that she wishes to have. I told her how I used to and still do sometimes do this. She said something about it just didnt seem right to her and I got thinking about it.
When I daydream I dream about a reality I wish to have, not the one God has given me. So in a sense I think that what I have in mind is better then what God has given me. I think what he has given isn't enough, His plan isnt the rright way. I know better. Or do I?
We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
I have lived long enough to see how God uses everything in our life for our own good. We go through pains and troubles and fires, but it grows us. It doesn't tear us down, it makes us stronger in Him. So why do I daydream when I know God's way is the best way? Because I don't want to go through the pains and troubles that it may cause. My daydreams don't change anything either, they just are a waste of time.
But then, as me and my friend were texting back and forth, I was like, Is it wrong though? Can it really be a sin just to dream of things you want to happen? But I think I just answered my question above. I would love to have your thoughts on the subject! Be Blessed!
