Have you ever dreamt something that came true later? I have. I have had at least five dreams over the course of my life that came true even to the smallest details. One was when my oldest son, Nathan, was 3. He was a cute, hobbitish little guy with chub, long curls that my husband eventually made me cut off, and pure unblemished skin. I had a dream during this time that Nathan was a tall, thin, freckled boy about 7 years old, and he was too busy playing with his friends to want his mommy. I woke up sobbing, and was so grateful to find my little 3 year old boy still a chub chub and still needing his mama. A few years later, he grew into the same boy in my dream, freckles and all. He went through his stages of not wanting his mommy, and now he is almost 18 years old, about to spread his wings.
Mothering littles can be exhausting, and during the time of that dream I had just had our second child, Keira. I believe that the dream was a God-given message to me that the years would pass quickly, to embrace every moment with my little ones. This is just one example of dreams I have had that have come true. There have been a few others as well. Dreams are fascinating, I think. Sleep is fascinating, in general. The way that hours pass as we sleep and it is like a second to us. Yet when we are awake, we feel the hours passing.
I believe God sometimes chooses to give us messages through dreams, just as He often did in the Bible. Have you had any dreams that came true? Have you ever had a dream that you believe was a message from God? I would love to hear!
