I’ve had a lot of dreams in my lifetime. Some, I didn’t remember when I woke up, and some faded soon after I woke, before I could think too much about them. But, a lot of them, I still remember like it was yesterday.
I remember some dreams that I don’t think really meant anything, and I’ve had several that, I was pretty sure, I understood why I dreamed them. I’ve had lots of dreams that I’m sure came straight from Satan, or at least from his evil forces, and I’ve had several dreams that I know for sure came straight from God.
If you’ve been following my blog you know that I was raised in church. When I was 16 years old, I quit going and began a three year romance with alcohol and drugs.
One night I had one of those dreams that I know came from God. I remember it in great detail. In the dream, it was day time, and I was standing outside in a yard by a big oak tree, next to a field which connected to the wood line. Everything was so green and beautiful. The wind started blowing and slowly grew. It became so windy that the big oak tree was being blown back and forth like a small bush.
I heard the long blast of a trumpet. At that point I knew exactly what was happening. As it continued, the sky change color, and I saw the Face of God filling the sky, and I saw Jesus descending from heaven.
I fell on my knees and cried out to God. I said, “No! Please, not now God. I’m not ready. I’m not ready!”
That’s where the dream ended. I’m sure no one needs a degree in dream interpretation to understand what God was telling me. I don’t remember exactly when I had that dream, but I do remember, I didn’t immediately change my ways.
When I was 19, my cousin invited me to go to church with him, so I did. That year I met Jesus, and gave my life to him, and then I received another dream from God.
This time the sky was clear and everything was calm, and so quiet. I was walking over some big rocks beside a body of water. Jesus was walking with me, holding my hand. I could feel his love for me, and I felt so peaceful and happy. It was the best feeling I had ever felt. That was the dream.
Many years have passed since I had that dream, and Jesus has never left me to walk alone. At times, I’ve let go of his hand, but he’s always been there to pick me up and dust me off. He’s always there when things are going well, and when the road gets rocky. Things are not perfect, but someday the troubles of this world will be over, and we will live in a perfect world with no more tears, no more pain, and no more death. I’m longing forward to that time, more and more each day.
