The Dream

I had a dream a few days ago and Justin (who is pictured above and  was at the tender age of 18 when he passed away) was in my dream and so was my oldest son, whom I had just spoken with before I went to sleep that night. My intention was to write it down and I didn’t.  Now, I feel like King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel chapter 2.  The thing has left me and I want to know what the dream was about.

Unlike the king, I will not call on the magicians, astrologers, etc. However, I will  call on the name of the Lord to continue to bless me with his peace, his strength and his right hand to lead me.  Also I will be more studious next time…be more deliberate about writing it down. 🙂

Has this ever happened to you? Where you had a dream,  that you really, really , really wanted to remember and just couldn’t?


1 Corinthians 13:12The Message (MSG)

12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

    Hello Vanna! I love your blog! I have considered blogging because I find it easy to write what is on my heart. When my son, Andy, died at the age of 26, I did not understand why I had no dreams, not even nightmares. I prayed and asked God to speak to me with a dream. I knew that God was mindful of our loss, and God was mindful of Andy as Andy left this world. I had my first dream from God about Andy when Andy had been with Him for six months. It gave me faith, peach, and joy! I will check back on here. May God use this to minister to others! Blessings! Priscilla McInville

      Thanks for visiting Priscilla and for your words of encouragement! I remember my first dream as if it was yesterday. It was soooooooo intense. Justin always gave great big wonderful hugs and it was one of the many things that I miss about him. In my first dream, I saw him so clearly and I reached out to hug him. It was almost like I could actually feel his body but he was very cold. I woke up crying hysterically.Then I also realized that I literally was very very cold. So snuggled further under the comforter and eventually went back to sleep…praying that I would not dream another dream like that one. So far I have not. Yes God is mindful of our loss and He cares about everything that we care about and encourages us to cast all of our cares on Him. It’s because of sin and Satan that we have any loss at all…that we have to experience the pain of separation. I look forward to the day that 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 talks about…The Lord shall return with a shout; with the voice of the archangel…the dead in Christ shall rise first… And Revelation 21:4 God will wipe away every tear. How long ago did your son pass away Priscilla?
