I have no idea what will happen tomorrow, next week, or anytime really – even today. But I know God is still in control. I want share a dream I had two nights ago that gave me encouragement.
I was driving in my white Camry on the way to my pastor’s house in Houston. I didn’t know the way, so a girl from the church told me to follow a guy from the church who was on his way to their house. He was driving an older, clunky grey Lincoln. He exited up a ramp that was very steep and wrapped around a sort of cliff. I tried to follow him, but I couldn’t. My car couldn’t make it.
The exit ramp was backwards from the direction I was headed. I cut across the highway and entered it anyway, but it was too steep. My car wouldn’t go. I got out of the car and looked up on the cliff. The guy was there sitting in traffic. He put his head out the window and told me to come up there. I said I couldn’t make it. He reached down and tried to help me up the side of the cliff so I could ride in his car, but it was too difficult. I was stuck.
He left his car on the side of cliff and came down to where I was. We got in my car and he drove. He said he knew another way to get there, and that it would be okay. After that, we randomly stopped at a CVS where my Mom was there and she wouldn’t stop talking to the guy. I was ready to go, but he was just standing there listening to her talk to him.
Then I woke up.
Does this mean anything? I don’t know, at least I don’t know about the CVS and my mom part. The rest of it sort of makes sense. I don’t know if the guy in the dream was Jesus, or a real person that God will send to help me find my way, but I know that the dream was a good dream, and I didn’t want to wake up.
I think it was a sign from God that help is on the way.
