Meditating on the life of Joseph lately, I began to ponder about his dreams. He never thought about two things it would take to see the fulfillment of his dreams. One is the route. He went through a lot to see his dream fulfilled. Second, the place where the dream was fulfilled. Egypt was not on his radar when he had the dreams. He thought his dreams would be fulfilled in the fields where his brothers were - and promptly right then.
God induced dreams are life changing. He declares He is the beginning and the end, and that is where you sometimes feel you see him only - in the beginning and in the end. Though He never leaves you nor forsakes you, you feel He is no where around. I believe He enjoys seeing us in our immaturity at the beginning and sees us in our arrival at the end. In the end is where He is able to see if our diploma will say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"
