I had a dream last Sunday morning where the Lord brought me into a place where I could recognize my own pain.
The snippet of the dream that I remember included a woman who was digging into rock. I came to her, and I noticed that she had a few things to offer me, including water to drink, so she took my water and exchanged it for her own water. (this reminded me of the woman that Jesus visited at the well)
In the next part of the dream, I was with a group of other people, who were also in pain. At that moment, I could hear people singing over us and saying to us: “there is power in the midst of pain.”
Finally, the last part of my dream was where I was with my wife, and we were staying together, in this place of retreat.
If pain could speak to you, what would it say?
It’s easier at times to see the pain in others, but to neglect the pain within ourselves. Thank you for bringing each one of us into a place where we can recognize our own pain, and seek your healing. Amen.
