February has been a pretty rotten month for me. Between all this nasty weather, car problems, heating problems in my home, issues with people who I can’t trust, people who don’t do what they say, etc., I’m about to pull my hair out. Last week, I really had a hard time remaining motivated, and I became depressed. I prayed to God, specifically asking Him for direction. I told Him all of my worries and gave everything to Him and then asked Him to speak to me through His word.
I opened the Bible to this exact quote: “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed.” Luke 10:41, NIV
I knew that God was reminding me that He is in control. There was no need for me to worry about anything. All I need in life was Jesus Christ. How comforting! This in itself was amazing; however, the dream that followed was even more incredible.
I have had occasions in the past where I had unusual dreams. You can read about one of them in a previous blog when I dreamed about a case that I worked on in the laboratory. I actually dreamed the results of the test the night before I read the case, and the results were exactly the same as what I saw in the dream. Also, my dad had this happen to him. He dreamed that his brother was killed in a car accident, and a week later, this actually happened.
Last night as I slept, I had one of the most vivid and amazing dreams ever. God took me on a journey. We walked through this mansion with these beautiful rooms. I was amazed at what I saw, but I didn’t understand what we were doing there. We exited the rooms and stopped. God gave me a list and told me that these were the people I would see first. The first name on the list was Rhoda, my grandmother. I was so excited to see these people, but I wondered about the other family members. God replied, “Oh, they are here but just in a different place.”
As we entered the next section, I saw many friends and family members. We hugged each other tightly and cried. It was such a wonderful experience, and I was so happy to be there. Eventually we walked into another room, and suddenly everything became clear. I understood why all the events in my life happened, and I felt a sense of incredible peace. Then pictures of a few people who I know showed up on the walls, and God warned me that I should be wary of these people as they weren’t trustworthy. Some questions in my mind were answered when I saw the pictures.
Right after seeing the pictures and receiving the incredible gift of peace, it felt like it was Christmas Day, and all the angels and those in heaven rejoiced. I was so happy…and then I suddenly woke up. I was almost afraid to move as I realized that I had been dreaming.
What made this night even more special is that my cat, Angel, curled up as close as she could get to me. Usually she sleeps near my legs and feet, but last night she curled up next to my chest. As my friends know, Angel is quite skiddish, and I had recently been asking God in my prayers to help Angel to fully trust me and become a lap cat 🙂
Although I don’t recall all the details of this dream, I remember enough to feel at peace. I don’t recall everything that was told to me when everything became clear to me at the end. All I know is that one day, all that has happened in my life will all make sense. In the first part of the dream, I was confused, but in the end, it became clear. I feel that this symbolizes my life. Right now, I don’t understand, but one day, it will all be explained to me. I just have to trust in God, and there is no need to worry. Many questions were answered in this dream, and I strongly believe that this is God directing me along the right path. What an amazing God we have! All praise, glory and honor be to Jesus Christ! Do not worry because God is in control!
