It was only a dream. Those words saying “you’re fired” had not been uttered by my real boss, only by his dream doppelganger. Even with the dream over, I can’t get back to sleep. It was too real, the words too frightening. And in the shadows of night, doubts swarm around me like demented termites, eating away my confidence.
Morning eventually comes, and the bright sun chases away my shadows. I go to work, still nervous that my boss will be upset over the mistake I had made the day before. He accepts my apology and all is well. Was this what I had wasted a night of sleeplessness on?
The nightmare had been so real, the reality so different. And I wonder, we talk about people “going to sleep” when they die. But instead, aren’t we asleep now? When we reach heaven, this will all seem like a dream. When we die, we Christians won’t be going to sleep, we will finally be waking up. The dream will be over, and God’s glorious reality begins.
“Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.”
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
1 Corinthians 13:11-13 NIV.
