Last night I had a dream. I dreamed that My Love and I were shopping in a mall somewhere. We were in a particular store, preparing to check out. While digging through my wallet and pockets for my store credit card, My Baby takes a work related call and moves a few steps away. While I'm still searching, the cashier walks away to go help someone else. By the time I find what I'm looking for, there's no cashier and I look over to see a man pressing hard against My Woman. She's got on arm extended to hold this guy off, while the other holds the phone, as she is trying to maintain composure and finish her business call. Immediately infuriated, I walked over and separated this dude from My Baby. Of course, I lost my (poo emoji).
He then proceeds over to the work the cash register. "WOW", I thought to myself! He was an employee, pushing up on a customer (MY WOMAN) in such a way!!! I then, demanded to speak with a manager. A manager comes over and by now, my anger has grown exponentially. The more I expressed my upset, the more furious I became. My Baby said, "It's not worth it. Let's just go." Usually, she is the "Bryan Tamer" and can calm me with just a touch or whisper, but it was not working here. For I was tired of letting such foolishness of the world slide or be laughed off. I wanted so badly to inflict pain on this man! I wanted to see him in agony, behind the works of my bare hands! I got to the point, where I could no longer form words.
Suddenly, my body woke me with a calling out for the restroom. As I stood, still breathing heavily from the anger expressed in my dream, it hit me. Thinking of my behavior and how angry I allowed myself to become, in defense of the Love of My Life, in response to a fool's actions, and to prove a point.......Why am I not this way about God and His Saving Grace, Jesus Christ?? I am fiercely defensive of my household and those within it, and I should be just as defensive of the Gospel, which has redeemed me and protected me all my life, as well as all those I love. I should find myself just as offended by those who dishonor God, and misuse and abuse His Word, for selfish gain.
Those who have ears, let them hear.......
