Last night I had a dream. I’m not the best at interpreting dreams, but I knew what it meant. I asked my own resident dream interpreter (Tom) his opinion. The basics of the dream was that I was busy doing everyday activities. When I went to Wal-Mart, my last stop of the day, I couldn’t find my car in the parking lot. I thought someone stole it, but I was more bothered because my book that I had written was in it. I found the car and then I woke up. The meaning was this; don’t get so busy with life’s everyday that I forget about my writing, especially my book. Car’s represent your ministry or vocation in dreams.
I find that God will try to get my attention in all types of ways, but when He really wants to get my attention, I dream. Why? Maybe it’s because that’s what we do at our church and I appreciate the fact that He speaks to His people this way.
This past week has been very busy at work. This weekend it’s been busy with church activities. I’ve not written a blog entry since Tuesday. I’m still trying to figure out if I should pursue self publishing my book. If I do, then where do I get the finances? Well it seems God wants me to not to forget about getting it into print. It’s my desire also, but one I’ve left on the shelf because of the busyness of life.
Everyone I know is busy. I’m a wife and mother, I work full time, I’m a pastor’s wife and lately a teacher. Each of these aspects of who I am have taken center stage in my life at different times and now it seems that God wants to add writer to it. It’s time to make that center stage. I’m still processing that.
So Lord I pray for your guidance as to how to precede from this point. Lord show me your way so that I may follow in the steps You have for me. Give me the grace not to let my car (writing) stay parked, but help me to start that car and move it forward. Amen.
