Dream for You

January 29, 2020—

Sometimes we build the most elaborate plans and dreams, only to watch them crumble before us. But maybe this is not the failure we think it is—today’s song by Casting Crowns reminds us that it is God who is steering us towards His “Dream for You.”

I’m stronger than you think I am

I’ll 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

Today, let us pray for the courage to let go of our plans and let God lead us towards His—He loves us like none other, and watches our every step.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Hey David, I hear you've been dreaming
About being a big-time shepherd some day
You're gonna prove your brothers wrong
You're gonna sing your shepherd song
To the cattle on a thousand hills
But I've been thinking
I'm having trouble with a giant down the road
You're the one who's going to face him toe to toe
Wipe that grin right off his face
And whip this army into shape
I'm gonna turn the nation back to me
And David you were right about one thing
Your little shepherd songs are gonna make the whole world sing
And I'm gonna make you king

So come on, let me dream
Let me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak
And I'll carry you
So let go of your plan
Be caught by my hand
I'll show you what I can do
When I dream for you
I have a dream for you

Hey Mary, I heard you've been dreaming
Making plans for your big wedding day
You and Joseph are gonna be
The picture-perfect family
Maybe a couple kids down the road
But I've 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
I'm gonna send my only Son
And Mary you're the one
You were right about one thing
You're gonna have that family
And you're gonna raise a king

So come on, let me dream
Let me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak
And I'll carry you
So let go of your plan
Be caught by my hand
I'll show you what I can do
When I dream for you
When I dream for you

I'm stronger than you think I am
I'll 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

So come on, let me dream
Let me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak
And I'll carry you
So let go of your plan
Be caught by my hand
I'll show you what I can do
So come on, let me dream
Let me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak
And I'll carry you
So let go of your plan
Be caught by my hand
I'll show you what I can do
When I dream for you
When I dream for you
When I dream for you
I have a dream for you
