I’m a big fan of crime and cop dramas on television; which tend to influence my subconscious at times.
One night, in 2006 or so, I had a dream that I was with a particular “cast”; they weren’t actors playing characters: it was a real-life world that I found myself in. I think it’s funny how, in dreams, you instinctively “know” and “remember” things that aren’t true.
In this particular dream, I was friends with the Team. The “him” that is referenced, is the Team Leader (I’d rather not mention the show it was based on; because that’s insignificant; and not what the attention should be paid to). It was a very short dream, but I couldn’t shake the feeling of belonging that it left me with. The more I dwelt on it throughout the day, the more it revealed that God can use anything, even a TV-based dream, to reach us.
Suddenly my dream changed from that of being in a cop drama situation, to being representative of how God cares for us, and notices things about us even when we are negligent. Of how He lightens our load, but only when we let Him.
The moral of this story/dream is how great God is, and, once we recognize it, how He shines through us as we introduce Him to others.
It’s a dream I still recall vividly, and pray I never forget.
