The dream I had last night/early this morning was weird and redundant. I found myself going through a tunnel over and over and over. Each time I went through, the exit got smaller and smaller. Thinking after each exit, I’d be free to dream on, I kept finding myself back at the beginning. On my last pass, I got stuck. I could not seem to squeeze through the exit. All of a sudden, I feel hands grabbing my shoulders, and pulling me out. I woke up, at 6:05 a.m.
I rarely have a dream that has no underlying message or meaning. This is what I’ve gathered. God gives us the tools and means to get through our trials. Trial, after trial, after trial, I’ve been able to use what He’s given me to get through to the exit of the tunnel, better yet, to the eye of the storm. For the skies seem to be clear, only for a while. Then, it’s on to the next beast to slay.
The tunnel and the going through it, over and over, are representative of trials we face. From one day to the next, there are new things we must work, fight, and make it through. At the end of each day, we go home, feeling accomplished and grateful that we've made it through yet another day. By our own might, we feel we are able. Every now and then, that exit from the day constricts, by God's design. This only happens as a reminder to us, that He is Who really gets us through each and every trial. When we take the time to evaluate every victory and all that occurred leading up to it, we will find God all in the mix. Often times, we make a pitcher of Kool-Aid, saying "I did this! This is MY Kool-Aid!" But where did the packet come from? How about the sugar? What about the water??
There are so many times in our lives when we fail to simply give God His due. When those hands grabbed me and pulled me free from my last pass through that tunnel from "Groundhog Day", I literally felt it. Had I not felt it, I would have overslept even more, and I would have been upset. Thinking more of God's involvement in it all, I know He wakes me EVERY morning.
HAPPY THURSDAY Y'ALL!! I LOVE YOU ALL EACH AND EVERY ONE!!
