I once dreamed of a life…….
I once dreamed of a life that had the scent of roses, the feeling of safety, and the scenes of people who loved one another. You see I was created from where there was no sound, no colors to look at, and not one other person whom I could share my existence.
It seemed that even though my mind was blank somehow I knew there was more than emptiness. To ponder the unseen and to question the loneliness there had to be an answer to the who and why. As the questions opened up in my search and pondering something kept speaking in my consciousness to seek the unknown and answer the who.
Who I was or why I was made were not the important factors for me. But what type of entity would concern itself to make a person without knowledge or wisdom to know? Would my time ahead, if indeed that’s what is, enable me to search and bow to this power that leads me.
If this unknown power saw fit to create me and allow me the reason to find who I am, then perhaps he or the essence of his being was enough to follow whatever he wanted from me.
So I found he was sending me on a journey to where? As my trek opened up I began to hear; the sound of soft breezes as my mind could feel, the colors of things opened my sense of peace, as I awaited silhouettes that had life like me.
There were struggles, I encountered, and persons appeared. Each one had similar nuances, but some did not. Finally, the thoughts of those breezes came forth, and I knew the who was guiding my feet. In order to understand and complete my journey the who in my life was one I could trust.
You see, when God created humanity, he did not give us all the answers to what. He gave us mountains to climb, persons that were not agreeable with our thoughts, and sometimes loneliness unless we embraced that soft breeze. Then, we accepted the wisdom that was always there waiting for our time to awake from that dream that entered our perplexed mind.
I once dreamed of a life as to who I am; and discovered it was God who awakened my mind and gave me a task to reach to others as myself and together we went and shared the wisdom of his Spirit and taught the need of salvation for all.
