“This is love; not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
We get so many dreams in our lives. We remember only a few. Certain dreams we do not like remember again. Some dreams are so vivid and we never can forget them, never in life. They have special message and impact on our lives.
And, in our lives however we go, wherever we go , such dreams drag us to the sweet memory of the Love of God. God spoke to Jacob, Joseph, of the Old testament and Joseph of New Testament had close relationship with God through his dreams. He gave guidance, comfort, instruction and courage and faith . He spoke about the future and precautions to be taken through the dreams.
They say when we have sound sleep we do not get any dreams, of course people day dream often and such dreams has no meaning at all. Onlythose dreams which are true and note worthy and should be recorded.
I have had such dreams in my childhoodJesus Christ was trying to contact me and trying to have fellowship with me Even now i wonder why he tried to show His love to me, before iI ever know what love is , His love for me provoked me to know what love is….” Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. god lives in us and his love made complete in us.” 1John 4:11
He showed His love in my difficult times in special way.. for that i ought to love Him and others.
“I was 10 years old, just as Jacob saw a ladder from Heavens to the place where he laid his head to sleep, in old times; I too got a dream wherein i saw a ladder colourfully decorated with beautiful flowers and tendrils, and dark grean leaves from middle of the Rain bow up in the sky to the down to the place where I stood and gazing in wonder. Because I saw Jesus christ on top of the ladder , right in middle of the Rainbow in the sky and looking down at me with a smile on His sweet face. He was looking at me and came down to me and gave a beautiful crystal glassy little box into my right palm and closed my first tenderly, and smiled into my eyes lovelingly.”
Then I was disturbed by some wake up call and lost taht wonderful dream, … but it was a blissful experience and that dream gave me contnetment, joy unknown and unexplainable, a deep satisfaction and assurance that i belong to God and He cares for me. He is th me from that very moment. That was pure love which I enjoyed along with His presence allways in life.
when i retrospect those events, and recollect the nearness of Jesus, I understood one thing very clearly. As long as we dono t crave for human love and seek their fellowship , as long as our hearts are just empty … for Him to enter into it He would have umpteen ways to knock the dorrs of our heart and reveal His love to us. It does not mean that we have to detach ourselves from all the human contacts, instead it would make us to love others more tenderly and more honestly and more deeply. This love of His teach us how to love our parents, our life partners , friends and kith and kin without pervading the special place of Jesus in our hearts and life.
After this dream my life pattern had been changed, I wanted to please Him by obeying my parents even though certain things did really bother me . To cite a few instances mother used to apply too much of co-conut oil to my hair and comb it tightly and make two plaits.. which I hated before. so i started to endure that ordeal without making any noise, She used to give me cold curd rice early in the morning even in winter season which I abore to eat. but i started to oblige her without any complaint thereafter. she used to buy the dresses which i do not like and used to make me wear them , so i sotped to give importance to this issue and started to wear whatever she chose for me for her sake.
Till then i was DADY’s girl, he used to support me a lot, my love for him was visible and outspoken; but now after this Rainbow dream I wanted to please my mom too, and obey both of my parents.
As far as I remember that was the very first decision I took in my life This Rainbow dream touched my sweet childhood and in heart of hearts I used to enjoy the amazing peresence of Jesus Christ in my inner being. I had had a beautiful childhood
