Dream on …

“I dreamed a dream,” Pharaoh told Joseph. “Nobody can interpret it. But I’ve heard that just by hearing a dream you can interpret it.” Joseph answered, “Not I, but God. God will set Pharaoh’s mind at ease.” Genesis 41:15,16

I rarely remember my dreams. However this morning I recalled a confusing dream. I was in a house, none that I recognized, and I had sheltered two little boys who came to my house dirty, with no clothing other than what they were wearing. Also residing in my home were several young adults and my daughter, Susan, who told me I needed to move my kitchen to a larger room if I planned to continue taking in children. The last thing I remember was getting ready to go shopping for underwear for the boys at Walmart.

In today’s scripture, Joseph, through God, had the talent of interpreting dreams. Pharaoh called upon Joseph to interpret his dreams and was so impressed he put Joseph in charge of Egypt.

I’ll interpret my dream to suggest the two little boys represents the two books I plan to write. Susan’s suggestion of moving the kitchen to a bigger room could not possibly suggest I like preparing meals, as I’m not that fond of cooking. And, I have no idea what shopping for underwear meant, as the boys in my dream needed more than clothing. I believe only God can accurately interpret my dreams.

Lord, let me live my life in real time, not dream time. Amen.
