Spread the love

I just woke up from a strange dream. I usually don’t remember my dreams, but this one I did. I dreamed that somehow, everyone knew that the end was near – that Jesus was returning… like possibly today! Christians started grouping together, encouraging each other in the faith, looking forward to meeting Christ. Each group had someone who was responsible for bringing them to faith in Christ – a disciple maker.

I was so encouraged to see that these groups of believers existed because someone discipled them. However, I was by myself. I was excited to see the Lord face to face, but I was ashamed because I didn’t have a ton of people to bring with me.

I woke up with a weird feeling… a little discouraged. I’m not saying that the dream was from God. I think it was more from my subconscious. The reason why is because I often share my faith, but I don’t see a ton of people counting their lives as nothing for the sake of Christ. I don’t see people completely ditching their lives for Him… so I sometimes feel like I’m doing something wrong.

I know I can’t compromise the truth… I want to see people come to Christ… what’s wrong? That’s kind of how I was feeling.

When I woke up, I opened my email for some reason (I don’t usually check my emails in the morning), and this article was in there. Completely applicable to my dream and my discouragement. It was a strange word of encouragement. I hope it helps you.
