“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.”
– Ecclesiastes 9:10
The Cemetery of Dreams
I usually do my morning walk around my village.
But one day, I decided to take my morning walk in the cemetery beside our village. I love going there because it’s very quiet. And I noticed that even if I run and made a lot of noise, the “homeowners” never complain.
While walking, I realized I was surrounded by thousands of tombs. But I wasn’t only surrounded by dead people. I was surrounded by the tombs of dead dreams. Books that were never written. Songs that were not sung. Friendships that were not kindled. Businesses that were not launched. Ministries that were not started.
Because people did not execute.
Are you familiar with this passage? “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning, nor knowledge nor wisdom. (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
Friend, don’t let your dreams die with you.
