Dreams are a series of thoughts, images and sensations that occur in our minds while we sleep; however, I believe that when we dream about our loved one that is no longer with us it is a visitation. I believe that it is their way of communicating with us, to comfort us and to help us get through our grief.
A few weeks ago I had a dream about my mom. It’s not the first dream that I’ve had about her but this one stuck with me and I’ll never forget it. In the dream she and I were holding hands praying for her healing. Then out of no where, in the middle of the prayer, mama yelled out that it wasn’t meant for her to be healed. She then directed me to her jewelry box and gave me the most beautiful earrings. The earrings had writing on them that read, ” Trust in the Lord with all your heart.” I then awoke from my sleep. I pondered about this dream for days. Why was mama yelling? What was she trying to tell me?
See my mom was very quiet and meek. The only time she would raise her voice was to get her point across. I truly believe that my mom wants me to understand that God’s will for her life was done. She wants me to let go of the disappointment that I feel. God did heal her just as we prayed for, just not the way that I was hoping for. His ways are not my ways and his thoughts are not my thoughts. She wants me to let go of the fantasy that she is coming back home and finally accept that she is home resting in eternity. So I say I hear you mom loud and clear. I will trust in the Lord and in his plan even though it hurts and I don’t understand. I will continue to seek his face and I will stay at his feet in prayer, praying that he will continue to help me accept the things that I can not change and that he will continue to help me to let go.
