Jacob was a dreamer, Jacob was a wrestler.


Being a dreamer is being a Jacob. It is not giving up on fate, on birthrights, on blessings, even when it feels like it’s all giving out on you. It is wrestling and finding the blessing in the practice, in the sweat, in the will to triumph. Life is it’s own reward for living. Faith is fighting with God and knowing the goodness at the heart of life is so complete that what seems like an audacious demand is really an act of obedience, for how it is, is how it was always meant to be. So you wrestlers, you dreamers. Take heart, for you were created to fight.
