Last Night I had a Dream

I had a dream that I was in a bad accident. And the strange thing was I had a lot of thorns in my feet. I had a horrible cut in the center of my chest. The cut was very deep and it appeared to be very infectious. I laid there in very agonizing pain at first, and the first person that came to me was someone I didn' know. The person I didn't know started helping me pull the thorns out of my feet. One of the thorns was very big and round. It appeared that it had entered all the way to the bone. I pulled this thorn out feeling no pain. I felt as if I was familiar with this person, but I couldnít tell you his name. It seemed as if I knew his name, but he wasnít who I thought him to be.

It took the ambulance a while to get there. By the time they arrived I wasnít feeling any pain. I laid back on a table and the man in my dream held me in his arms.

The emergency workers moved slow snd were not in a hurry. They walked around and spoke to the crowd. There was total peace, I didn't hear any sirens. All I saw was a bright room filled with people I didnít know.

I looked down at the wound in the center of my chest, it was closed and the thorns were no longer in my feet. Feeling no pain I knew this dream was deep. When I awoke from my sleep, I was puzzled and I needed to know what this dream meant. I laid there and asked the Lord to reveal it to me. As the pieces began to come together, I tried to keep an open mind.

The accident itself is the things I am going through. The hurt and the turmoil are things that I am not use to. The thorns in my feet were all the things that are taking me through a change.
And the man helping me to pull out the thorns was Jesus. That is why I wasnít feeling any pain.

All at once a smile came over my face. I thought to myself, the
wound that was in my chest was a sign of all the pain that I go through. Dealing with things that people do. I realized as the
wound started to close, that my heart was healing from all the woes. The ambulance team was my family and friends. They were in no hurry because they didnít understand. Saying how can she be hurt so bad and not appear to be feeling any pain.

I laid there in deep thought, now I know that everything will be okay. I know my Father is on His way. I will wait upon that great day. I get tired of things from time to time, sometimes
I feel as if I were loosing my mind. But just when I felt I was at the edge, God sent me a word saying, ďjust go aheadĒ.

The roads may get rough as they sometimes do, He says child put your trust in me, and I will see you through. I started to wonder about those who say they donít dream. I believe that every dream has a meaning. We miss out on a blessing, when we choose not to ask God for a screening.

My prayer is to hold my head up high. And with faith my dreams will lead me through. Itís when I think I am alone, God sends his angels to help me carry on.

Hi there! I believe that dreams have a message too! I enjoy your writings! Blessings wished to you, Jacque

From one dreamer of vivid dreams to another, HANG ON TO THOSE DREAMS! Also, I have my own "theory" or revelation, if you will, about Paul and his thorn in his flesh. Paul said himself, "a messenger of satan to buffet me." In other words, to keep him from becoming puffed up and proud because the anointing in his life, God allowed him to be taunted by a messenger of satan... a tempter. When he'd prayed three times for the thorn to be removed, the Lord said "My grace is sufficient for you, for YOUR strength is made perfect in weakness." In other words, Paul could pull out his own thorn. And so could you. And you did... in your dream. And you can... in your life... because YOUR strength is made perfect in weakness, as you lean upon the Lord and let Him carry you. Hugs

Sorry... had to come back and correct myself. The Lord said that HIS strength is made perfect in weakness. But the revelation or "theory" hasn't changed. You see... because of the scriptures which follow that one. The idea is based on 2 Corinthians 12:10b for when I am weak, then am I strong. Nevertheless, have a blessed day, blessed dreams, and I pray you continue to be strengthened from on High.
