I had such a beautiful dream last night. It was really vivid. There was a large pool of water, perhaps a lake, and hundreds of people stood around the edge of the lake facing the water. The people were all singing Amazing Grace. I was holding a guitar and walking around the lake behind the people who were stood singing. I played the chords to the song as I walked around the lake behind the people and I was singing beautiful harmonies to accompany their singing. I felt such joy and freedom from fear and anxiety.
Sometimes people say they have received a dream from God. I believe every dream comes from God, as He is the author of everything that happens in our lives. But some dreams, the ones people often say are from God, have a special significance that sticks with them and perhaps provokes them to some kind of action. For instance, it’s common for people to have an experience of meeting Jesus in a dream.
I don’t know what my dream last night signified, if anything. I think many people feel tempted to read meaning into dreams but in my experience dreams are often muddled and chaotic and have no obvious meaning. Only God knows what’s really going on. But what I will say is that last night’s dream blessed me and I was pleased to wake up in a good mood as though some residual joy from the dream was still in my mind.
I would love to hear your experience of dreams that were particularly significant to you, or that you believe were from God and had meaning for your waking life. Feel free to share your experience in the comments below.
