Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.
George Bernard Shaw

Many times in the Bible, dreams are used profoundly to guide someone or to shape the way one makes choices. Joseph was a dreamer. He foresaw all his brothers bowing down to him. And through God's hand, his dream came to be as he became second in command to all of Egypt. Nebuchadnezzar had the opposite dreams which told him that he wouldn't end up to well unless he turned away and that is exactly what happened. He purposely denied the dream. Even the Magi in the new testament had a dream to not return to Herod after seeing Jesus. The dreams guided them to safety. Over and over, the Bible tells stories of people having dreams. Elijah, Ezekiel, John, etc.

I have even heard stories of dreams shaping my friends lives. But none of them have directly been involved in my story. That is, until now. I just had, quite possibly, the coolest morning story ever, in the history of my morning stories. See, I have this friend with whom I went to high school with. We've hardly seen each other sense then except on a random bocci ball excursion one time when I was back home visiting. Life has taken us on extremely different paths. And yet, the stories still find away to impact back to one another.

She had a dream where she was driving down the street and saw people building a house. She realized on closer inspection that I was one of the people building the house so she turned around. I (my dream me) showed her around the house and ways that she could help. She ended up helping until it was all finished. She immediately messaged me upon waking up and told me her dream and asked how she could help.

That is a crazy story and I am so glad God works through dreams. We barely have gotten this story rolling and It's already getting crazy. I can't wait for what God has in store next. How do you top a dream like that?

well, ta ta for now
