My dreams have been crazy lately. Earthquakes in neighboring counties, people being pregnant, shopping and school boys getting into trouble, cutting my foot and other random things. My mind at times seems to explode with creative thoughts and I wake asking God for the interpretations. I have always been a dreamer and many times God speaks to me through the dreams and even more so when I found out that God can reveal things to you through dreams. I go to bed each night exhausted but asking God to show me something in my sleep and look forward to what He has for me. I lay down as if to crawl up into the lap of Jesus and rest, while he whispers in my ear new revelations and thoughts of creativity. I may not be normal but I get excited about sleeping.
My life has always been full of dreams and I remember some of the dreams I had when I was little, the times when God spoke in an audible voice, when I seen Him as a man who continued to morph into different people while talking to Jeff, floating in the spirit at church and when I was transported in the rapture. You can call me loony if you want, but the greatest dream or vision I had, was the night I burst through the ceiling and flying toward a bright light as the rapture of the church took place. My mind was focused on a bright light as I was moving quickly through the trees and clouds. I felt the breeze of the wind on my face, my feet were kicking like I was swimming and there were millions of people on my left, on my right as if we were in a line but I continued to look up. Many voices shouting “Hallelujah!” I was not thinking about Jeff, the boys or anyone else but I kept saying, “This is it, I finally get to see Him, be with Him with all these people!” Within an instant, it was like I was sucked back to earth with a force and dropped into my bed. I immediately woke up as if I bounced on the bed and was shaking all over and speaking in the heavenly language of tongues. I was crying and immediately rolled out of bed on my knees to pray, feeling disappointed that it didn’t happen.
The nightmares came when I was a child and I remember yelling at times for my mother to come into the room for the rescue. As I got older, I realized most nightmares come from tormenting spirits creating fear in your life. As I became a Christian, the nightmare came again but in the form of spiritual attacks while I was sleeping. One particular night, it was as though I was paralyzed with fear as I heard the back door slam shut as if someone came in. I heard many tiny footsteps run down the hall into our room and surround our bed. In this scenario, my hand was hanging off the bed exposed and a small demon like creature bit my finger causing pain. I was trying to shake it loose but to no avail. The other small creatures hopped up on the bed, snarling and growling causing me torment of fear. I couldn’t seem to wake Jeff and my tongue was thickened where I could not talk, suffocating under my own breath. As I finally spoke the name of Jesus, the creatures were immediately swept out of the room by the presence of God. I opened my eyes and covered my head and prayed. It took me a long time to get over that one, but as I continued getting stronger in my Christian walk, the enemy gave up trying to cause me fear cause I learned how to fight.
Jeff continues to sleep throughout the night with no dreams or nightmares and when he does dream it truly has significance. Our boys had nightmares many times too, especially Lyle. The enemy wants to create fear in our lives when he sees the potential of the damage we can do to his world in the spiritual and natural.
I love hearing about dreams, if you have had a dream there are a few of us who like to interpret so feel free to leave a comment stating your dream or share a dream with us.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the dreams you give me. Thank you for your spirit to lead and guide me throughout my adventures in my rest. In Jesus Name amen.
