God is my ultimate Savior

What is in a dream? Do we know the true meaning of each dream we have night after night? Some visions we have at night appear pointless and seem illogical to our understanding. In my opinion, most of my dreams seem inconsequential, but to Daniel certain dreams have purpose. In the book of Daniel, he is given the job as King Nebuchanezzer’s interpreter of dreams. Neb...uchanezzer had dreams so complicated he could not understand their meaning. In Daniel 2:31-35 Daniel was to interpret the king’s dream about a “dazzling statue.” Daniel 2:45 states, “The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future.” Nebuchanezzer also dreams about the future Kingdom of God in Daniel 7:13. Every vision Daniel deciphers is from God and Daniel even makes it clear he is no prophet and only through the power of God is he able to understand these dreams.
I believe God has also given us the same gift to make sense of our own nightly dreams. Sure we have all had dreams that are silly, like my dream of a shark in a swimming pool doing laps. Although dreams like these give us a chuckle, they mean nothing in our everyday lives.
In 2004 I had tracheotomy surgery to put a permanent breathing tube in my neck. I live daily with a disease called Muscular Dystrophy that has taken my strength and my ability to breathe on my own, but this disease has not grabbed hold of my faith in Christ. The trach was something I knew I needed to survive. After a few very rough and painful months following surgery, I was having a difficult time with my emotions. I was at home but the devil was making me believe the rest of my life would be stuck lying in bed, not being able to talk or eat. I was lying in bed crying and asking God to let me out of this miserable life while I was sleeping. I thought God would grant me this last request but his plans were different for me.
I closed my eyes and fell asleep. I am not sure what I was experiencing but I was in a room full of white light. I could only see a few feet in front of me since the light was so bright. Sitting in my wheelchair with a tube to help me breath, a feeling of despair swept over me again. Why am I still like this in what I thought was Heaven? Through the clouds I saw a figure walking towards me. The figure was difficult to see but He was draped in white. Two hands stretched out towards me and cupped my face. Once He came closer the face of Jesus was before me. He looked into my tear soaked eyes and told me, “This is not your time.” The Savior of the world knew I was in trouble so He came to me and told me to keep fighting; life will improve.
In the morning I woke up and even though I could not talk, I told my mother my dream. With Christ, my mother, and my sister getting me through the rough patches I got stronger and healthier. I had to carry on because I wanted to see my niece and nephews grow up. Since those days full of anguish, my life has improved. I can eat and talk despite what the doctors told me. KJV Psalm 107:20 states, “He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.” When the devil sends trouble to your life remember to let Christ fill you with his abundant love and faith.

Mood: grateful
