When Joseph was in prison, it seemed like the world had totally forgotten about him. But Joseph knew that God had not forgotten, and Joseph had not forgotten the dream God gave him.

We've all had a dream at some point in our life. Unfortunately, not many of us could say that they are living that dream. Pastor Rodney Fouts kicks off this series by reminding us that the dreams God gives us are never dead. Even when all looks lost, we're called to keep running towards the dreams He has given us.
