You’ve seen that movie, yes? “Field of Dreams”. I would imagine that most of us have. And if not, do something good for yourself and watch it. I have seen this movie many times. However, I really saw the movie for the first time just recently. Let me explain, if I may. There is a particular line in this movie that one hears many times. “If you build it, they will come.” I thought this line to be good, very good actually. But I never picked up what was really being conveyed there. I get it now. “If you build it, they will come.” means that if you believe in your dream and build it, no matter the obstacles, people will come. People cannot help but be drawn to growth, to what is being built. And in coming, they help to fortify and strengthen your dream and cause it to grow. And in blessing you, they are blessed in return. It is a cycle as natural as life itself. Elsewhere in the movie, you will also hear this line “If you build it, He will come.” In the movie, “He” was the main characters’ father. In our lives, it would reference God or if you prefer, our Creator. Our Creator is very much interested in our dreams. After all, He placed them in our hearts, our minds. And if we build those dreams, then He will indeed come and participate in those dreams with us. And that is part of God’s natural cycle! Give this a bit more than a passing thought, if you will. “If you build it, they will come.”
