General poem by T-Ralph


Stanza 1
Hey, David, I hear youve been dreaming
About being a big time shepherd some day
Youre gonna prove your brothers wrong
Youre gonna sing your shepherd song
To the cattle on a thousand hills
But Ive been thinking

Im having trouble with a giant down the road
Youre the one whos going to face him toe to toe
Wipe that grin right off his face
And whip this army into shape
Im going to turn the nation back to Me
And David, youre right about one thing
Your little shepherd songs are going to make the whole world sing
And Im gonna make you king

So come on, let Me dream, let Me dream for you
I am strong when youre weak and Ill carry you
So let go of your plan, be caught by My hand
Ill show you what I can do
When I dream for you
I have a dream for you

Stanza 2
Hey Mary, Ive heard youve been dreaming
Making plans for your big wedding day
You and Joseph are gonna be
The picture perfect family
Maybe a couple of kids down the road
But Ive been thinking

Even before time began
I had a picture perfect plan
Of how to save this broken world
Through the life of just one man
Im gonna send my only Son
And Mary, youre the one
You were right about one thing
Youre gonna have that family
And youre gonna raise a King


Im stronger than you think I am
Ill take you farther than you think you can
You sing and call me Great I Am
So take your stand
My child, if you only knew
All the plans that I have for you
Just trust me, I will follow through
You can follow Me

I was dazed too by the song (Dream for you) written by Casting Crowns in their album "Thrive". I never saw those Bible characters in that light till now ...

I learn sometimes, we create plans for our lives whereas God has the ultimate plan and timing, even for the plans/visions HE gives us.

Selah: David probably thought he would be the wealthiest shepherd expert until he was anointed king at about 15yrs (a godly vision at that). David spent another 15 years after being anointed but haunted by Saul before he became king of Hebron after Saul died and another 7 years before king of Israel after Ishbosheth (Saul's son) died.

There are several other characters like that too with intercepted plans. But in the end, the end is always greater than the beginning and it surpasses any dream they could have created for themselves - David from shepherd to king, Moses from prince to outcast to shepherd to Israel's liberator and prophet, Gideon from field worker to warrior/judge, Mary from raising a family to raising the Saviour, some disciples from fishermen to fishers of men (apostles), Matthew from tax collector to apostle, etc.

Truly, let God dream and plan for you. It is never about your dreams and plans but HIS dreams and plans... and importantly, be patient with the process. ...
