I don’t know much about dreams and interpretation but I have faith that if I need to interpret a dream the Lord can give me the meaning. (Genesis 40:8) Ever now and then I have a dream and I do get a clue. About 10 years ago I had a dream that I have remembered and pondered on occasion.There wasn’t much to it.
Dream: I was in a car with my best friend at the time, and we were stopped. It was a beat up convertible. We were in what seemed like a desert place on a single lane road. The road was in pretty bad condition. There were large pot holes, hazards everywhere, debris, and places where the road seemed to have just corroded away. The road went on as far as my eyes could see. I commented that the road was in really bad shape. I think my exact words were, “this road sucks.” And the friend who was with me, whom I believe represented the Lord, turned to me and said, “that’s okay because this road takes us where we want to go.”
I woke up at that point. I believe the road represented my life, at least the part of my life that I was about to enter. Shortly after this dream, I began to have serious trouble in my marriage which eventually ended. It was the roughest time I have ever experienced. My faith was tested. I was tried and tested in ways that I could not have imagined. My character was tested. My ability to forgive and to love unconditionally was tested. I failed. I repented. I moved on. I learned to pray when I couldn’t forgive. I learned to put my faith in God and His promise no matter what. This is what got me through.
I am glad that the road in the dream only went as far as my eyes could see. The road is better now. Not so many pot holes and way less debris. It is still rough but I am satisfied that it will take me where I want to go. I feel like I am on the right path in life – A small and narrow, very rough road that leads to life, and, ultimately home to my Lord and Savior Yeshua.
I have had many other dreams that the Lord has interpreted for me when I needed it. Some have led me to pray for healing for a family member without knowledge about the illness. That led to doctors being changed, test being run, and, dangerous conditions being found in time for healing to take place. Some simply gave me hope to go on and not give up. I believe we were given dreams to help us cope with life and sometimes receive messages from Heaven and I thank God.
