I believe we will be hearing about Susan Boyle, the YouTube phenomenon, for quite awhile. I think she has been interviewed by every news station. I read this about her on the Internet, “Susan Boyle. She's every woman, fighting that extra 15-20 pounds, standing in the grocery check-out line, assaulted by magazine covers of size 0 women and the rich and famous. But she has a dream, a passion to share with the world, if she only has a chance.”

For my part, I think we cheer her on because she is a woman who has a dream—and it might just be fulfilled. She chose the song, I Dreamed a Dream. The lyrics are as follows:

I dreamed a dream in time gone by

When hope was high and life worth living

I dreamed that love would never die

I dreamed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid

And dreams were made and used and wasted

There was no ransom to be paid

No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night

With their voices soft as thunder

As they tear your hope apart

And they turn your dream to shame

I think I can relate to these lyrics. Can’t you?

But God . . . Those are two of my favorite words. They are found throughout the Bible. No matter what has happened in our lives—the good, the bad and the ugly—the Lord can turn it into something good. God has the power to fulfill our dreams—but in His own way. It may not look like we imagined. But God . . .

“But God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” (Genesis 50:19-21 NIV)

Sounds like a Heart-Print of fulfillment to me.
