Chasing dreams. To some, chasing dreams is an exercise in futility. It is like trying to capture and preserve a soap bubble floating through the air. On the other hand, to others, chasing dreams means to turn hope into reality. This was the case for Diana Nyad the endurance swimmer. From the time she was eight years old, she dreamed of swimming across the Florida Strait. . . a distance of 112 miles. Her pursuit of a dream opens up some considerations concerning focus, persistence, self-discipline, and faithfulness for the Christian. This lesson should prove to be beneficial to your class as a motivation to aim high, work hard, and hang on as they endeavor to be faithful followers of Christ.
