Man of My Dreams
I was pondering and praying about this unusual dream. Two of the three men that combined magically into the man of my dreams are not Christians and I dated them before I was a Christian. The third man making up the man of my dreams was a Christian brother I dated a few years ago. I was encouraged that in my dream they were all Christians. I also realized that right now I really crave to be comforted and have someone looking out for me. So you may be thinking..."why are you sharing all this?"
Simple reasons. Because I'm human, because I struggle, because when times get rough I still find myself craving the comfort of a guy, because if I don't open my eyes to stuff like this then satan will tend to find a way to use it. As a friend of mine use to say, "God has the perfect guy for you! And so does Satan." Mostly because if I'm not open to others, especially in this blog, then others might assume that either I've got it all together or that it's okay not to be open.
Be open, my sisters! Even at temptation level? Even about some stupid dream? Yup...why not be a vulnerable disciple of Jesus? If you are unsure, then find a safe person. Safe meaning someone you trust yet someone who will not simply people please you. I'm not scared...I'll tell you that I do struggle, I fight, and I fail. And I get to share my garbage, get back up, brush off, and keep walking my walk with God.
