Mrs Irwin always remembered that moonlit night when she found her son Jimmy standing at his bedroom window staring at the full moon. She asked him what he was doing, and he told her he was looking at the moon. So, she told him to stop it and to get into bed. Reluctantly he did so, but then said to her: ‘You know one day I’m going to walk on the moon.’ Who could have thought that the boy in whom the dream was planted that night would survive a near fatal motorbike crash, which broke almost every bone in his body, and then, thirty-two years later would become the first person to step on the moon’s surface?
James Irwin is just one more example of the power of a dream or vision that God puts in our heart. And, as the Bible says: ‘Though it linger, wait for it. It will surely come.’
