I think I've become the new Miss Cleo...minus the 1800 number, lawsuits and jail time. For the past week I've had the most vivid, crazy dreams. For some people this is normal but for me it isn't. I rarely dream and if I do, I never remember them. So when I have a reoccurring dream or an actual dream that I can remember it usually affects me and my day.
I usually don't think anything of the dreams. I shrug them off as nothing and tell myself they were either caused by something I ate, something I've read or something I've seen in a movie or on television. However, this week one dream has profoundly effected me. To explain it, I'm going to have to give a little back story. Bare with me.
Near the end of 2007, I got extremely sick. I was having serious stomach problems. I became so sick that one night after months of feeling horrible, seeing doctors and never getting answers that I begged God to either just let me die (which I'm extremely afraid of) or to get better. At that point in my life, God and I had had it out multiple times. I was struggling to believe in anything but I was raised in a very religious family so when I got sick, I looked for answers. Months later I finally started getting better and after a year I was basically back to normal days of feeling ok. Yet, this time I felt different. I started saying a nightly pray. AND if you know me, then you know that was a big step for me to take. When I don't understand things, or don't know what to do, or I have a day where I feel sick, I always go address it in my nightly prayer.
So...this leads me back to the dreams. At the start of this week, I said my nightly prayers and went to bed. I woke up and I could remember the entire dream I'd just had. In the dream someone I knew and had once dated was getting engaged. In the dream I was there, watching it unfold. I shrugged off the dream and went on with me day. A few hours later, I'm at work and I find out that the person in my dream... got engaged. It scared the crap out of me. Why? Because I may or may not have mentioned them in my nightly pow wow with God. Now, why am I talking about this? I seriously believe that God was preparing me for it. I think he knew that I needed the heads up. And I've had 2 other come true dreams this week, hence the miss cleo (seeing the future) reference.
Now you can laugh or call me crazy or think that I've seriously went off the deep end but I really do think that I was given that dream. And a few years ago, if I would have read this I would have thought, wow that girl is losing it. Now... not so much. I mean do you ever feel like God has intervened in your life problems?
