The Best Dream of My Life
I had the most amazing dream yesterday morning, totally out of the blue. I was totally present in it, and I don’t dream dreams like that often. It was so vivid. I remember every word. Every glance. Every scene to incredible detail.
I was in a crowd at a funeral. During the funeral service, the deceased woman began to flop an arm. Before the preacher could begin preaching her funeral, she sat up in the coffin, trying to adjust her eyes to the light. The crowd stirred more and more, with smiles and disbelief.
She looked around the room and said to all of us, with total sincerity, “What are you all doing here?”
We smiled, but no one in the large crowd could answer.
She then said, “Did anyone bring anything to eat?”, to which we all laughed at the tension breaker. People began to get up and things changed.
Death…to visible, joyful, LIFE.
How real it was–her reactions and comments, ours. Everyone trying to figure out how to tell the children. Trying to discern how to tell those struggling with disease. Making phone calls. Families hovering together, talking, trying to figure it all out when it couldn’t be figured out!
The dream changed me–my perspective. My energy. My outlook.
It renewed me. It planted a smile back in my heart to face things…whatever they may be.
God can do what he needs to do. We are never too late in praying toward his purposes. He can bring laughter, and cause us to shake our heads and wonder where it all came from and why. It is to his ends and his purposes that he moves. We watch in wonder and awe and amazement.
To those I know facing terribly difficult situations in life…I offer fresh faith and prayers. God can handle it. He is big enough. I don’t know what He will do, but I know that He can do what it needed, and even blow my little mind. I look forward to those moments in real life…with great anticipation. To Him be the glory and the honor and all power and dominion. Amen.
