As I grew into a young adult my dreams changed and were attached to whatever "job" or life choice I was currently involved in. They became less about who I would be inside, but rather what I would be known for.
When I was saved at the age of 27 I had a great career. I was making good money, living in my own apartment, and savoring my social life. I was also depressed, lonely, confused, and ashamed about my life and my choices. My dreams were empty because they were mine and not God's.
