Running through the Red Lights

Running through the Red Lights

I had a recent dream that used to play itself in my mind…over and over again when I was a kid…here it is:

I was driving a car and the meridian got too close, so I had to swerve and push my foot to the gas peddle to miss it…as I was speeding, I continuously ran through red lights.

๐Ÿ‘†That’s it? Yup. Sometimes the shortest dreams have the biggest words. Hehe…I’m just glad that there were no cops in my dreams! ๐Ÿ˜œ

This one is a little different than my previous dreams from when I was younger. In the other ones, I was trying to slam on the break but continued to go through the reds. I desperately wanted to stop but the brakes were broken. It felt like my body was beyond exhaustion…but I kept pushing on through the “red lights” it was giving me…this became my normal and I forgot how to stop.

Conclusion: I have more control over my own life now (hence my foot pushing the gas peddle instead of the break-it was my choice) and am still learning to not crumble at the demands of others (even the demands I imagined they wanted of me…and the demands I commanded of myself). Yes, I chose to put my foot on the gas peddle this time but I missed the meridian (stumbling block) in life. I just hope I will recognize the warning lights ahead…

Are you pushing yourself past your body’s limits? Is it giving you red lights? If so, how about finding the “best yes” along with me. Let us not say “yes” to every opportunity that comes our way (for there will be many), but let us take a breather and wait upon God to be the GPS in our cars.

“Dream a Little Dream”

“Dream a Little Dream”

Do you remember the strange dreams that come at night? The real crazy ones that are sometimes the hardest to remember by morning?
Well, I cannot forget the two that I’ve had in the span of 7 months…

Dream One:

I was in my house when someone was knocking at the front door. I did not answer it for I was too overwhelmed. Why? Because I was filled with such a peace that I had never known before. I had no doubts, worries of life, and no fear but that of a kind that God can only instill.
The man had a beard and shoulder-length brown hair. He had piercing eyes that saw me through the walls of the house and into my room where I was huddled in a corner.
Since I did not answer the front door, the man headed to the back door and knocked again. Sadly, I was still frozen with the powerful feelings inside me. Oh, and what feelings they were! I have had a taste of this peace at the times when I have been on the mountain of life with God (where everything is clear and trusting The Lord comes with ease). Though, this peace was 1,000 times more intense. I look forward to having this feeling again in heaven. โ˜บ๏ธ
Have you guessed who this man is? Yes, it is Jesus. ๐Ÿ™‚ Though, He was not alone… Jesus had a full-grown horse and a colt. Yes, the older horse looked sturdy and reliable with saddle and reigns (my old life), but the colt was young and free (which represents a new life). Jesus was offering me new life.

But then I woke up.

My thoughts crashed into each other when I awoke from this glorious dream. God translated what the objects meant but not what it was supposed to mean to me. I was frustrated at my “dream-self” for not answering the front door or, at least, the back door! After thanking God for the experience, I demanded an answer from Him for what I saw! Was I not following God in the new life that He has given me?! Did the colt represent a new life being physically healed from my ailments? I did not know…and I did not get my answer until I had a different dream around 7 months later…..WHICH I will talk about in my next blog post.

God picks out different teachings to speak to me every time that I write or tell the story of my dream. So I may update my posts or write new ones talking about diverse revelations that He gives me.

Here are song lyrics from “Mercy Me” that fit how I felt in my dream:

I can only imagine what it will be like
When I walk by Your side
I can only imagine what my eyes will see
When Your face is before me
I can only imagine
Yeah

Surrounded by Your glory
What will my heart feel?
Will I dance for You Jesus?
Or in awe of You be still?

Will I stand in Your presence
Or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing, Hallelujah?
Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
